My Review:
While my daughter's are still young, I think about their future and sometimes it really scares me. I already know from my own experiences as a teen how hard that age is, but in today's world of technology, social media, and cyber bullying it seems even harder to be a tween and teen girl. This book is a great resource for any parent of children and young adults this age. The book is written in a very easy to understand manner for both the parent and child, and will easily engage both generations reading it. The book not only examines the relationship between parent and child but also the child and her friends. Then you will be introduced to eight fantastic dates you can have with your child to help deepen your relationship. The dates are all fun, but serve a purpose with wonderful teachable moments like the importance of serving others, friendship, respect and more. 
This would be a perfect read to start the upcoming new year and making resolutions to have healthy and strong parent/child relationships and friendships in 2014.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
