Rebecca4 Stars Out Of 5August 10, 2010RebeccaThis series gives girls food for thought. The books seem to be good for non-Christian and Christian girls alike. They seem age appropriate (6th grade issues) and they are not preachy. There is no mention of God or prayer anywhere in this book. However, the last couple of pages give the reader a chance to think about the moral of the story and to pray with a parent.
