    Love, Lexi

    By Sherry Kyle

    Published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.

    The book Love, Lexi by Sherry Kyle is a stand-alone devotional directed towards pre-teens and tweens. The book is written stylistically as the personal journal of Alexis (Lexi) Dawn Cooper during her seventh grade year. It shows her ups and downs, her awkward moments, her attempts to be popular and stylish, and her crush on a boy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but there were some things that I felt like they didnt match with reality. For one, it was a story of a boring, awkward girl who tries to become glam and a part of the cool kids club. It also illustrates her crush on a boy that she has known since the first grade and seems to really like as she pursues a relationship with him. I thought that this book was a little typical: awkward girl wants to become cool and get the cute boy. I did enjoy her hilarious quirks and fun moments, however, and I would definitely recommend this book to girls ages 10-12.

    Thank you so much to the Tyndale Blog Network for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own and were not required to be positive. 4.5 Stars

    Sherry Kyle has given tween girls a real treat. Lexi is a realistic and completely relatable girl. Tween girls will feel like theyve made a new best friend with flaws, foibles, and a great sense of humor. And moms will appreciate Lexis kind heart and her willingness to learn. If you have a tween girl in your life, shell love Lexi too!

    Fiction Story & Journal All in One

    This fiction story is all about Lexi and some difficult situations the 7th grader is in. The book is written as Lexi's letters to God about each day. Then God "answers" with a Bible verse and there is room for the reader to journal thoughts and feelings and similar situations. I figured my 10 yr old would enjoy the book, and I was right! The only negative I saw in this book was the amount of time spent on Lexi's crush on a boy that is her friend. We don't encourage crushes and focusing on boys at this age but I allowed DD to read the book because I think the overall message was worthwhile. Daughter really enjoyed the book but agreed it was a little too much about the crush. She really likes the room for journaling and that the Bible verses are written out throughout the book. She's hoping to see more books like this from Sherry Kyle.

    Such a great idea, this book! It's a seamless combination of story/journal/bible verses/idea articulation assistance - this one truly has it all for the tween and teen!

    From the story, Lexi is a seventh grader who is actively trying to find her way, both in her relationships with friends and family as well as God. She writes in her journal to tell God what happened that day. At the end of each chapter, there is a little love note from God with some relevant-to-what-happened-today verses. The author also includes a directed devotional section with room for the reader to write their own letter to God. They also help the reader to come full circle, ending each journal entry by asking them to write how God can resolve the challenge. There is also a "God, thank you for...." and "God, help me to..." that are relevant to that day's journal entry (both by Lexi and the reader.)

    The story is great; the idea is interesting; it is well written and fun and poignant and touching all at once. On a personal note, the author had me at "....the grand prize (for a school fundraiser) is a limousine ride and a pizza lunch with up to three friends at Pizza My Heart." - which just happens to be my all time favorite pizza place! When I read that, I knew it was going to be good.....and I was right.

    I was provided a free copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review which I have given here.
