My Life Unscripted Review! :D
MY LIFE UNSCRIPTED by TRICIA GOYER
Book Rating: @@@
Inappropriate Scenes: None but there is suggestive material
# of Pages: 220
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Using the metaphor of screenwriting, My Life, Unscripted explores relationships in every teenage girl's life-with herself, her friends and enemies, her parents, guys, and with God.
Real-life scripts, screenwriting terms, and timely topics, make this an interesting read for teen girls as they delve into their own inner struggles and outward relationships. They'll also learn the importance of "scripting" their own responses BEFORE challenging life-situations arise so they are able to think about, pray about,
and consider how to face these situations before the scene begins. By contrasting real-life with TV or movies, teens will understand they don't have to get caught up in the drama.
I'm not a big devotional reader. In fact this is the first one I have read. : / So I'm not exactly sure how to review this book. It was a good book. It had a lot of good points that were geared toward helping teenage girls survive their teenage years. Maybe my difficulty with this book was that I couldn't relate. I've never really had a problem in my teenage years where I needed help. I don't really interact with guys so I don't need the helps in this book about boyfriends, I have a good relationship with my parents so I didn't help there, and I'm obviously not dating if I don't interact with guys so I didn't need help there either. However, if you can relate to the things I just mentioned this book might just be for you! :) It did have some good points so def. check this out if you're struggling with your teenage years! *Note* this was specifically geared toward girls. Boys, I'm sorry, you might want to find another book.... : )
