Growing up in a family of five as an energetic preteen, Carmen Browne is determined to live her life to please God. Now, as an eleven-year-old, Carmen begins to face the uncharted waters of adolescence. She discovers that her changing moods and growing body bring a brand new set of challenges to her life. Even in the midst of situations like being at a sleepover where the host shows an inappropriate movie, or being surrounded by classmates gossiping about her family, Carmen knows she must take a stand for what's right. As she learns to trust God to work all things out for good, Carmen learns a lot about herself, too: being popular doesn't guarantee you true friends, being honest up front saves a lot of hurt, and sometimes self-confidence is just bossiness in disguise. In this fifth and final volume of the Carmen Browne series, our courageous heroine finds out that growing up isn't a fairy tale, but as she walks through her own life story, she can truly be content living as God's Happy Princess. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
