BOOK REVIEW: Enough - 10 Things We Should Tell Teenage Girls - by Kate Connor


BLURB:

You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.   In a book based on her run-away blog post "Ten Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls,” which garnered more than 2 million views in two weeks, Kate Conner calls us to action in Enough. We all have teenage girls in our lives who we love, whether it's a sister, friend, or daughter. Kate has identified 10 things these girls need to hear today from someone who loves her. Peppered with wit and laced with grace, Kate's list tackles relevant issues like Facebook, emotions, drama, tanning beds, modesty, and flirtation. Woven into each chapter is a powerful message of worth that transcends age, and will touch the souls of women, young and old alike: You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough. A former youth-worker, wife to a college minister, and a young mom in her twenties, Conner stands squarely in generational gap, the perfect place from which to bridge it. Conner offers herself as a translator, helping you to speak your teenager's language and equipping you with a fresh perspective from which to engage your teenage girl—one that may enable her to truly hear your heart (and your wisdom) for the first time since puberty.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 8 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book talks about modesty, "the beauty trap", and girls that act not as smart as they really are in order to get a guy. 

My favorite advice in this book is to not act like you don't have a brain to get someone to like you. If they don't think you are enough then they are not worth it. 

I recommend this book for teenage girls or mothers that are getting drove crazy by their teenage daughters. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 14 and up.
