Product Description

At fifteen, Tindell Baldwin weighed her options--continue to follow the path and the rules set by her Christian family, or find her place in the "popular" group and have some real fun. She decided to write God a good-bye letter and set out to live the life she thought she wanted.
In her memoir, she shares provocative, raw insights into her journey through high school that led to places she never intended to go. She writes vividly and honestly to help anyone thinking of taking a similar journey themselves. Tindell shares the often untold cost of emotional pain that comes as a result of the decisions many of us make to fit in.
Her story shows the temporary, shallow, and painful parts of living life on the wild side while shedding light on how she stumbled back to God and discovered grace.

Publisher's Description

Tindell Baldwin’s words best describe her passion and this book:

“My heart is for teenage girls because my story is much like so many of theirs. I was just a girl who made a lot of mistakes. I was a girl who had sex before marriage and then had a broken heart. I was a girl who did drugs and drank to fill the void that was deep in my heart. I was a girl who was desperate to be popular. A girl who, like so many others, didn’t know the dark side of sin. So my aim is to reach teenage girls, and through an honest account of my darkest sins, show them what they are up against. My heart is that teens would hear my story and flee to Christ. My greatest desire is that God would be glorified above all else.”

Through a two-part journey (“Dark” and “Light”), Tindell details how she said goodbye to her family’s God and pursued popularity at all costs while climbing the social chain in high school. During a night of partying, she even encountered the man suspected of killing Natalee Holloway in Aruba. But God did not leave Tindell. The “Light” part of her story shows how she reconnected with God, changed her ways, and discovered abundant and real life through Christ.

    Popular gave an honest look at the temptations a teenager faces and the consequences that follow. Even teenagers that grow up in loving Christian homes face all sorts of temptations in the world around them and fall prey to those temptations like the author described. This book would be perfect for teenagers and their parents to read so that hopefully they can avoid some of the heartache and mistakes that the author faced.

    I really enjoyed reading Popular because the authors story is one that is not uncommon. The author was raised in a loving Christian home, but she never felt like she belonged. By the time she was in high school, she was living a life that went against everything she had been taught. She was drinking, going to parties, smoking pot, and was sleeping around. The author became one of the popular girls at school, but she still felt an emptiness inside and no matter what she tried, it would not go away. During her wild years, her parents tried everything they could to help her: they prayed for her, grounded her, tried talking things out with her using logic but nothing they did would change her. It wasnt until she was 19 when the author begun to change but that only happened when she realized that she was throwing her life away. Once she realized this, she started listening to her parents and she gave her life to Christ. And, that is when things started to get better for her. She no longer felt empty inside and she found what she had longed for all along: true love in the arms of Someone Who would never leave her and would always love her no matter what bad choices she made. This book is a great read for any teenager and college student because it is a message of hope: no matter how messed up you are, no matter what bad choices you make: Jesus loves you and is waiting to not only forgive you, but to also give you a better life.

    "I want to write this book with the kind of utter honesty that makes people uncomfortable. That might sound weird but until we're brutally honest about important issues, we won't know how to tackle them." The author's hope is that teenage girls will learn from her mistakes before they have to make those same kinds of heartbreaking, sometimes life-threatening, mistakes themselves. It's a powerful story, an amazing testimony of God's grace, and it touched my heart. I recommend it for any teenage girl. But, not only that, I recommend it to any woman in general. I guarantee it will move you and resonate with you. The author is so sincere and real, unafraid of baring it all in the conviction that her story will change someone's life. We need more of that in this world.

    This is a great book for teens, especially those experiencing some of the same problems and issues that faced and entangled the author. The title really makes it clear what the book is about. The author tells her struggles openly and honestly and the change in her life due to Jesus is wonderful and inspiring! My only criticism would be that it tends to go on a little long and could have been shorter with the same punch to it!

    This review was written for Popular: Boys, Booze, and Jesus - eBook.
    This author has a valuable message, and does a fairly good job of expressing it. She could have said it in fewer pages, though. I agree with her that a story relays the lesson better than plain advice. She had good stories. It took strength to admit to her failings. The lesson was hard learned, but worth telling teens about. I agree with another reviewer who felt that parents should read this book before deciding whether it's one they should give to their daughters. Teenagers react differently, and respond to different approaches, and you know yours best. Baldwin talked about her own experiences, but it seemed to be rambling. That could be simply her style, but I thought it was repetitive. All in all, it was a positive message, and I believe all teens need a positive message.
