MY REVIEW:

It has been several decades since I was in the targeted age group for this devotional. As an adult, I have worked with junior high/middle school and high school students as a youth group leader, Sunday School teacher, supervisor of high school aides in my classroom, and as an paraprofessional at a high school. As an adult who is interested in the spiritual, mental, and emotional development for this age group, I jumped at the chance to review this book.
 
I was not disappointed!

This book is beautifully-packaged and will appeal to male and female readers with its black and blue type and unadorned pages of devotions. 
 
Each devotion includes a short title, a Bible verse, message of several paragraphs from the author, and a two to four sentence prayer which applies to the Bible verse and the lesson for the devotion.

Many of the devotions regard peer pressure. Specifically, the negativity that one must navigate through on social media. Even though I did not grow up with social media when I was this age, I can see the pitfalls of this method of communicating.
 
The author encourages readers to not compare themselves to others in the areas of appearance, wealth, etc. She reassures them that God created them in His image with a plan for their lives. Then she provides examples of how readers can accomplish these goals by focusing instead on God and His purpose and path for their lives.
 
The author's feeling tone is warm, welcoming, positive, supportive, and encouraging. I believe young readers will respond positively to her youthful writing style.
 
If I could sum up the message of this book as I see it, I would quote the final sentence from Devotion 25, 'Cool and Confident':
 
"Be cool and confident in who God has created you to be, and live the life God has called you to live."  Sadie Robertson Huff, author, page 55
 
I highly recommend this book for readers ages 13 to 16, families, church libraries, Sunday School/youth group leaders, and for older adults who want to get in touch with their younger selves.
 
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through JustRead Publicity Tours. All of my opinions and thoughts shared here are solely my own.
