About the Book

Culled from actual questions they have encountered on their blog site, this fabulous resource offers real-life help for girls on issues including relationships, character, body image, fashion, gossip, and more. Girls will find 180 questions along with answers and related scripture selections that will both encourage and challenge them in their faith walk. Girl Talk, presented in a trendy format that reads like a magazine, is a super tool for girls’ small groups or for individual use.

My Take on the Book
As a father of two girls this book is a great resource that I know my girls will enjoy as they get older. It is filled with so many valuable resources and questions and answers from real girls about real issues that are important to them. Whet I loved about the book was that it is written not only from the author Nicole O'Dell's point of view but that she incorporates her own daughter's thoughts as well and when you are reading the answers, you can clearly identify which voice is from whom. This is a must have book for any tween girl or their parent!
