This book was recommended to my 12 year old from a friend. It is such a great book about how scripture plays a roll in dating and how girls should respect the wisdom and position of their father. Everything the author says is backed up by scripture. The story goes between a young princess wanting to leave the castle, the prince who wants to do something with her and the alligator who tries to tempt her to do it. Then, the author uses her own voice to talk about real life situations. I felt there was nothing inappropriate about this book but would recommend reading it with your child to answer questions they may have.
In this day and age where purity seems like a bad word we need resources like this to bring us back to the truth of dating, relationships, and marriage. Preteens and teens all alike are exposed to toxic thinking. The book's author speaks about purity in a refreshed and riveting way.
My daughter originally was loaned this book. She valued it so much that she had a hard time giving it back. I told her that I would try to see if I could get in on Christianbook.com and she was overjoyed to find out that I had ordered it for her. She is sooo glad that she has her own copy and can mail her friend back her copy.
I would highly recommend this book for preteens and teenagers to read (even better with a parent, grandparent, or even Youth group leader for accountability). My daughter is already gaining some understanding about purity in just the first 2 chapters. Our daughters (and sons) need to have this kind of understanding and empowerment as they face the world's view and pressure to give away their innocence and purity!
