About the Book:

This nonfiction book is real and honest, and should be required reading for teenage girls and their parents. Christian Library Journal"

My Review:
 Purity has never been a real concern to society. Magazines and movies, these days show the exact opposite of purity. With the world telling you one thing and the church wanting you to do the opposite. It is sometimes very difficult for a teenage girl to decipher what to do. Elsa Von Colopy helps answer the questions that concerns most girls. From dating to marriage, the author breaks down the in's and out's of staying pure until marriage.

 With a light hearted point of view, Elsa explains the things she went through as a teenager and ultimately as a grown woman. As society grows more and more deceptive, we need a voice such as hers to tell us exactly what to expect and how to respond. She gives a bare bones truth that I have rarely seen in an author.
