Publisher's Description

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 ... an 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, a girl much like yourself, 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."

You'll cry with Caitlin as she experiences heartache, and cheer for her as she 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...

    This is a book I highly recommend for anybody of any age. The content is so important for young woman of this day with the encouragement to stay pure for marriage and the consequences of actions. Please, if you know a young girl in High School get this book for her.

    Sixteen-year-old Caitlin O'Conner seems like your stereotypical "good-girl." But are appearances always true? Caitlin's experiences may surprise you. With separated parents, a a sudden 'in' with the popular crowd, invitations to unsupervised parties and dates with the most sought-after boys in school, Caitlin has a myriad of choices to make.

    Chronicling a full semester of Caitlin's life, this book walks the reader through many decisions and their consequences facing teens today - including faith, trust, popularity, the value of money, purity, alcohol, and divorce. Honest but not graphic, this book forces the reader to question her own stance on these important issues.

    Carlson describes Caitlin as a sincere, somewhat shallow, but basically typical teen from today. She gets good grades, has a solid friendship, and has the strong support of her family behind her, and yet she is seriously tempted by many things on which her footing was previously stable. Carlson shows how simple it is to allow our convictions to be swallowed up by our circumstances - and for that, this is a must-read for teen girls today.

    I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.

    Becoming Me by Melody Carson follows the story of Caitlin, a teenage girl who has just decided to pick up a pen and diary and record the events of her life. Immediately, we are transported to a world of youth groups and high school, friendships and cliques. She struggles with each new relationship and many old ones, and in the midst of everything, she searches for the answer to her existence.

    I haven't finished a book that quickly in YEARS! It arrived in the mail on Wednesday. Even while juggling homeschooling, laundry, and dishes, I still managed to finish it on Thursday. The author has amazing insight into the mind of a teenage girl. So many of the topics and feelings she brought up seemed to come straight from my own teenage thoughts and experiences. It was great to revisit some of these feelings, looking back on them with a little bit of humor and a whole lot of contemplation. I kept wishing that the diary were a real one, instead of fictional. The story meant a great deal to me, and the characters seemed like living and breathing people. I yearned to be able to shoot Caitlin an email to see how she's been doing lately.
