I'm reading Rachel's book, Girl, Wash Your Face at the moment and I'm loving it.
I'm a fan of John Dickson's work and this book is no exception. He wrote it for teens and it is very easy to read - I read a chapter each morning in my quiet time. I think the blurb says it best: "This is a book about God, you, the Bible, prayer, church, relationships, sex, feelings, doubts, love and, above all, hanging in there as a Christian."
It is a must read for all teens. I think it would be especially helpful for new Christians and even those who aren't Christians yet but have questions. John shares stories from his own experience - it's very relatable for both guys and girls.
Fear is such a big thing for many people. I haven't read Afraid of all things yet, but her book, He numbered the pores on my face, is my favourite Christian book ever!
I loved, loved, loved this book! Reading it felt like sitting down with Scarlet over a milkshake and sharing funny stories and life lessons. I laughed out loud. I cried. I totally related to teenage Scarlett and her struggles. I wish I had read this book when I was a teenager.
