This is a quick read. I received it free. It is written for female teenagers/youth. The author openly describes her personal struggles with various "secret sins" and how she overcame these with God's help. I felt she went into too much detail but maybe it will help some youth. I liked that she warns readers not to read certain sections if they are likely to be tempted to commit "new" sins due to curiosity. This is something we often overlook when confessing sin/holding each other accountable...it is easy to plant a seed in someone's mind and the enemy can use this to tempt that person to sin. We need to be aware of this.

I didn't warm to the author's style which was casual and with various jokes/attempts at humour. I appreciate what she has tried to do and that she has exposed her personal life to help others trapped in sins that are not often openly discussed. I would only recommend this book for those youth already struggling with the sins mentioned. It may help them and provide practical solutions. The book offers Biblical advice and states clearly that the only true source of help is Jesus.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Are you living in silent shame, hiding a "secret sin"? Maybe you numb life's pain with a bottle, razor blade, or sex. Maybe you "binge and purge" or act on feelings for other girls. Whatever your "secret"-shocking or not-if you're trapped by it, you're trapped by it. And chances are you're not getting help because you're too scared of what people would think if they found out. Unashamed breaks the silence about the sins girls think they have to hide. With daring and a touch of humor, author Jessie Minassian shares her own story of struggle and victory. God longs for you to live in the freedom He died for! So whether you're caught in a cycle of sin yourself or just want to know how to help the silent sufferers all around you, let this book be the beginning of your journey toward health, healing, and freedom in His love for you.… (more)
