Cherished: Boys, Bodies and Becoming a Girl of GoldBy: Rachel Gardner
In this gutsy and intimate book, Rachel Gardner tackles head-on the issues facing teenage girls: self-image, the pull of the in-crowd, puberty, boys, sex, regrets and godly ambition. Credible yet shot through with biblical wisdom, parents and youthworkers can give this book with confidence. To her readers, she writes:I realize that you don't know me so it might feel a bit weird me saying that. But it's true. I have written this book because I want to let you in on a bit of a secret; you are precious and your life is a gift to you. It's a secret because few of us know it and fewer actually believe it.
