Today's mom is faced with the task of helping her 8-to-12-year-old daughter grow up in a society that compels her little girl to grow up too fast. Moms' Ultimate Guide to the Tween Girl Years gives mothers practical advice and spiritual inspiration that will enable them to see their mini-women into adolescence strong, confident, authentic, and God-centered, even in a morally challenged society -- without losing their childhoods before they're ready.
Nancy Rue has written over 100 books for girls, is the editor of the Faithgirlz Bible, and is a popular speaker and radio guest with her expertise in tween and teen issues. She and husband Jim have raised a daughter of their own and now live in Tennessee.
Prolific author Rue, most noted for her youth books The Lily Series, here gives Mom an up-to-date and humorous look at the tween world of girls, or what Rue calls 'mini-women.' From such hot-button topics as identity, beauty, puberty, and friendships, Rue clearly has her finger on the pulse on this age group. Her example scenarios ring true, capturing both the eye rolls and the need for a hug (often simultaneously). While Rue directs her advice to a Christian audience, her parenting approach is recommended for any parent of a tween. Her witty humor translates well, and she has earned her chops with this age group. Highly recommended. -- Library Journal
