About The Book:

Friends can make or break the life of a tween girl. That’s why bestselling author Dannah Gresh, popular speaker and creator of the Secret Keeper Girl events, and youth educator Suzy Weibel have developed this resource that targets the hearts of tween girls as they grow in and pursue friendships.
A Girl's Guide to Best Friends and Mean Girls springs from the life and example of Jesus, a tween girl’s true BFF. It helps her explore questions such as
  • Who should I choose for friends?
  • How can I keep my friends?
  • How can my parents help me?
  • What do I do about jealousy and hurts in my friendships?
  • How can I be Jesus’ friend, and how do I introduce others to him?
Christian moms and dads will be delighted with the biblical grounding and godly guidance that will help protect their daughters in friendships and help them understand what friendship really is.

My Review:
Are you looking for a fun, informative book for your tween/teen daughter that will help her navigate the sometimes stormy waters of friendships? Do you want your daughter to know how to start a strong relationship with Jesus, which will intern help them develop strong relationships with those around them?
Then I highly recommend A Girl's Guide to Best Friends and Mean Girls! It is designed with tween and teen girls, with catchy chapter titles, journalling, mini devotions, questions for reflection and discussion and a ton of activities for them to complete either on their own, or even in a small group study session. The bright pink cover is eye catching and the perfect way to drawn a young girls attention. Dannah Gresh has been ministering to young girls for several years and I sure will be using her materials for my two daughter's when the time comes!
A great read that I give a huge thumbs up to!
