Over the last few weeks I’ve been reading several books which I seem to be finishing this week, including Cherished: Boys, Bodies and Becoming a Girl of Gold by Rachel Gardner. We’ve given this out to several young girls in our youth work this year on the recommendation of one our leaders so I thought I’d have a read of it. Lydia’s recommendation is well deserved – this is a great positive book for young teenage girls to read. The book touches on many of the big issues for them: self-image, sexuality, clothes, friends and so on. Rachel writes in a conversational style, that’s easy to understand, and brings in comments and quotes from a wide range of friends of various ages. I’m really glad that we’ve given out some copies of this book, and will certainly look to buy more for our young people.
