School Stitches and Stuff
Besties, Boys and Other Bafflers
Faith and Family
Each chapter has between six and eight multiple choice quizzes for your daughters to work through and the results at the end simply require them to count how many A’s, B’s, C’s and D’s they got and then the one with the most is the girls’ results. I didn’t think the school section would have much in the way for my girls since they are homeschooled but the quiz on your secret learning style is great for however the girl is being schooled. The one thing my daughter’s and I did not like were the quizzes about boys such as, “are you totally crush crazy?”, “are you ready to date?” and “who’s your perfect guy”, since my girls aren’t exposed to peers who are boy crazy and we chose to let God lead the way as to who is going to be their perfect guy (or not, maybe He’ll lead them to be single and serve Him) these quizzes weren’t that pertinent to us. I also don’t think that girls should be focusing on this type of thing, instead they should focus on their relationships with their family, community, God and friends (not necessarily in that order).
There wasn’t much of a spiritual aspect either, which I was sort of surprised by – since it is a FaithGirlz! publication I was expecting some Scripture or Scriptural connection to what the girls learn about themselves or their friends from the quizzes. Unless I missed it there were no Bible verses or Scriptural connections at all, especially where it was most important – with the guy issue and the Faith section. Even though there is the chapter on Faith and Family I found this to be a book that whether the girl is Christian, Muslim or no religious affiliation could pick this up and relate it to her life and her beliefs. Overall, it’s a fun book and provides a fun look into the lives of my girls and their friends but if I had to recommend it based on Biblical worldview or being overwhelming Christian I could not recommend it – it’s simply a book with fun quizzes.

From my daughter: "I thought it (the book) was awesome. It taught me a lot about my personality. It is a funny and awesome book."
As a woman, I am intrigued by quizzes, from what kind of boy you are most attracted to (when I was a teenager) to how country are you? Quizzes just amuse me. I find them to be a way to learn more about yourself that you really didn't think about too much. I love being able to share that with my daughter and introduce her to internal self-exploration. I loved watching her think about the answers and pick which one applies to her most. Some of her answers were pretty surprising!
At the end of each quiz, you count up the number of points assigned to your answers, and there is a short summary given. Each of them have some reference to the Bible or a Bible character in them.
This was my first FaithGirlz book that I have read, and I hope to get my daughter more of them to read. (Posted on 8/27/2014)
