In this updated version of THE TRUTH, My Secret Diary, I’m Ten, I’m Smart and I Know Everything positive psychologist Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein provides a glimpse into two years in the life of a girl starting at ten years old. Told as a series of diary entries, the reader follows the girl as she falls in love for the first time, deals with troubles at home, attempts to fit in with her peers, and watches her body begin to change. As young girls move along through this young journalist’s life, they will be reminded of their inner strength, their talents, and their future potential.
The TRUTH: Diary of a Gusty Tween contains references to modern technology that all tweens and teens use on a regular basis. This is the second update of this book for teens and tweens. I like how Holstein works to stay in touch with her readers and keeps abreast of what is important to them. However, the messages of this book remain the same: you aren’t alone and you are special. Because these messages are so important when reaching out to this age group, I am happy Holstein continues to focus her work here. Bringing up girls to have a healthy image of themselves is vital to future happiness.
Definitely a great book for those ten and up to read alone or with a parent for discussion.
