Ms. Rue takes a conversational tone in this guide to understanding and effectively parenting tween girls. There is good advice on helping establish good body image, good hygiene, handling mood swings, and dealing with bullying. This book comes from a foundation of faith in Christ, so much of the advice is based in biblical teachings that support and give a foundation for the suggestions Ms. Rue makes. ( )

NCLA Review - The author, Nancy Rue, has her pulse exactly on today’s Tween Girl World. Tween girls are ages 8-12. As we all know, today’s preteen scene has many challenges. Ms. Rue includes personal anecdotes, insights and emails from girls who have emailed her which adds to this book’s authenticity. The guide is divided into 4 parts composed of 2 or 3 chapters each. Some examples are helping the young miss “find herself”, anorexia, bulimia, personal care, healthy parenting, peer pressure, and dealing with bullies. She closes every chapter with a prayer and gives the book a Christian flavor throughout. Ms. Rue has published 36 previous books for tweens and teen girls about authenticity, beauty, the changing body, relationships and spiritual formation. She gives helpful insights and true examples for dealing with all the touchy subjects facing tween girls today. I would like to have read this book 25 years ago with my own daughter but now it will be helpful for my 2 granddaughters. I recommend this book for mom study groups and every church library. It would make an excellent gift. Rating: 4 —RE ( )
