Diary of a Teenage Girl BECOMING ME by Melody Carlson

Diary of a Teenage Girl BECOMING ME by Melody Carlson is a true to life glimpse into a teenager girl's world. Caitlin O'Conner is just turning sixteen and is going back to school after Christmas vacation. She's had a makeover during break and captures attention when she steps foot in school again. Attention from the cool kids. She ditches her BFF for these new friends and is faced with new problems. Problems at school with friends (both girls and boys) and problems at home where things seem to be unraveling before her eyes. She journals it all and you get to sit and read over her shoulder as she faces life one day at a time.

Melody Carlson's ability to write what a sixteen year old is thinking is incredible. She gets it all. I totally remember being that fickle teenager. One day you like this guy and then the next day this other one is paying attention to you. So glad I don't have to deal with what Caitlin is dealing with anymore! Caitlin is faced with some tough decisions. This book is recommended for all teen girls.

Thanks, Melody, for this CLEAN READ.

About the book:

In the fictional Diary of a Teenage Girl, sixteen year old Caitlin O'Conner reveals the inner workings of a girl caught between childhood and womanhood...and empty life without Christ and a meaningful one with Him. Through Caitlin's candid journal entries we see her grapple with such universal teen issues as peer pressure, loyalty, conflict with parents, the longing for a boyfriend, and her own spirituality.

Follow Caitlin O'Conner as she makes her way from New Year's to the first day of summer--surviving a challenging home life, changing friends, school pressures, an identity crisis, and the uncertainties of "true love."

Caitlin experiences heartache, and encounters a new reality in her life: God. See how rejection by one group can-incredibly-sometimes lead you to discover who you really are.
