Why I Liked 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know…
A) Oh so relatable. I loved reading about Kari’s real life experiences. I felt like she could’ve been writing about me, the crush-crazy, teeny-bopper that I was anyway. I laughed out loud at her story about not wearing glasses in math class because she didn’t want the boy she liked to think she was a nerd. That was so me! I feel like Kari’s stories are perfect for both mothers and daughters. Moms, you all remember what the teen years were like. Daughters, trust me, this is a fun read. Not preachy or boring. Kari knows where you’ve been and relates like a girlfriend.
B) The quizzes and discussion questions. The little quizzes throughout the book reminded me of the quizzes I always liked to read in teen magazines when I was younger. I thought they were the perfect addition to a book for teen girls. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter are straightforward and real. Kari knows exactly what to ask and provides questions you really have to think about.
C) The design. The totally cute design really hooked me before I even knew what this book was about. I loved the colors and flowers. I also like that this book is thin, so it’s not intimidating for girls who may not be readers. 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know is the perfect gift book. I highly recommend it for girls ages 12-16.
