In the fictional Diary of a Teenage Girl, sixteen-year-old Caitlin O'Conner reveals the inner workings of a girl caught between childhood and womanhood ... an empty life without Christ and a meaningful one with Him. Through Caitlin's candid journal entries we see her grapple with such universal teen issues as peer pressure, loyalty, conflict with parents, the longing for a boyfriend, and her own spirituality.
Follow Caitlin O'Conner, a girl much like yourself, as she makes her way from New Year's to the first day of summer -- surviving a challenging home life, changing friends, school pressures, an identity crisis, and the uncertainties of "true love."
You'll cry with Caitlin as she experiences heartache, and cheer for her as she encounters a new reality in her life: God. See how rejection by one group can -- incredibly -- sometimes lead you to discover who you really are...
I very much enjoy books that are written in a diary style, and this one was no exception. Caitlin is very honest about her life, which is very much like a typical teenager. She loses her best friend for popularity, and then regains her when the popular crowd drops her again. She falls in love with the same boy, again and again. But most important of all, she finds God. She struggles with many things in her life, as a typical teenager does. This book shows exactly how a normal life is, and what good can come of it!
