    Can you recommend a good book for a teenage Christian girl?

    Can you recommend a good book for a young Christian teenage girl who has a poor self image and is experiencing the typical trials of a teenage Christian in school - peer pressure, hurtful kids, weight issues, boys, all the temptations we all had when we were that age?

    The Bible is a good book. It is in fact called The Good book.

      Thank you Oztinato and celafoe. She has a good Bible but I think sometimes young people can benefit from a book as they don't always understand the Bible and I am not sure what her life is like and whether she reads it regularly.

    Anything by Frank Peretti. He is a Christian author but his books are exciting. He has a young adult series but if she is an older teen his adult books are terrific too.

      Thanks Jodah. My youngest son used to read Peretti's books for youth.

    I just sent my niece 2 books written by Melody Carlson that are Christian and geared to teen girls, you might want to check her out on Amazon.  The titles were "It's My Life" and "Becoming Me".

    I don't know about for self esteem issues but for the rest, (& maybe those issues too) I highly recommend If You Really Loved Me by Jason Evert to every Christian teen. It changed my life; I wish I had read it sooner!!  Best of luck! <3

    I recommend the book 'The Horsemen Cometh', by Charles Pretlow.  Don't be misled by the title; the book goes into scriptural detail of how we're to walk in these days (end of the age) and of the process through which Christ leads us to be prepared for it.  It would be an ideal read for your daughter....for any Christian for that matter.

    Kissed the girl and made them cry by Lisa Bevere. My girls benefited greatly from this book. They were also ministered by her book, "It's not how you look it's what you see."

    Would it sound self-serving to say the book I wrote. It isn't doing anything and hasn't sold very many at all because I didn't have the money to promote it and the publishers own all rights, but I did write it for teens/young at heart adults and it is in verse so it would probably be appreciated best by teen girls. It is called "Love Believes All Things (A Love Story In Verse)" by Robert E. Smith. It is on Amazon. It is about a little boy who needs a friend so desperately that he uses a doll to be his sister to complete his makeshift family and written from the perspective of the doll. It is a spiritual book and not a fantasy in the true sense of the word because all that is in it is written Biblically plausible. I was thinking, it would be nice to know someone that read it and get a reaction from them afterwards. Just a suggestion. Bob.

    I would recommend "Hinds Feet in High Places" by Hannah Hurnard. Its an allegory that mirrors the roots of the struggles and victories in the Christian walk. Its one of my favorites, its a very compelling story that once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down. Its also very readable and easy to understand.
