I loved the phrases Brooke used in this book as well, she uses wording that was easy to understand but mature enough for middle schoolers to not feel patronized while reading it, which is such a hard balance to find with books for younger women! The main character is extremely relatable and reminds me of several younger believers I know, the book makes it super easy to place yourself in her situations or relate her to yourself! It's amazing, especially considering the media younger girls are supposed to relate with now, Brooke's book is paving a new way for young women to have easily relatable, funny, and biblically sound reading material. I really loved the chapter where Fiona shared her testimony and talked on how her parents were struggling but how they handled it biblically, it was so refreshing and I feel that will not only be a good lesson for younger girls but comforting for them. I LOVE DARBY 😭 Darby and Fiona remind me SO MUCH of my best friend and I it's insane, I love the amount of perspective Brooke puts into this book and how she shows Fiona handling all her friends with love, care, and the gospel. 10000/10, this is by far the best book for younger women that's gospel centered I've ever read. ❤Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:
