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.

    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 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.

    Tindell Baldwin speaks frankly about the mistakes she’s made in her life. She admits to doing things she’s not proud of, just to be popular. Even though many would see her as living a glamorous life, she shows that choices we make, even if they make us ‘popular’ don’t always lead us down the narrow path.

    The narrative voice is easy to read, and I like how Tindell didn’t sugar-coat things.

    A good read that displays the rewards of recovering from the past and being liberated by our Lord.
