Jenna Lucado and her father, Max, discuss issues (self-esteem, dating, modesty, abusive relationships, eating disorders, divorce) and how what girls need is a good relationship with their father.

Because not every girl has this, she discusses how the father-child relationship (especially the father-daughter one) is meant to mimic the relationship that God has with each of us.

There are Bible verses and prayers, but also personal stories (the ones Max shares are reprints from his books) and that keeps this book really relatable.

Another way it's relatable is the references Jenna makes. For example, she compares possible relationships with God to Facebook relationship statuses ("in a relationship" means you're doing what God wants you to do and following Him and "it's complicated" means...well, I bet you can guess. Hint: it's not good.)

I'm not the target audience (it's really geared towards teenage girls) but I think it'll be really valuable. One of the best lessons, of course, is how society's definition of beautiful is not a good one. (Hence the title.)

    Redefining Beautiful

    Jenna Lucado follows in her father's footsteps with this inspirational book about finding beauty through the eyes of God rather than through superficial means. Jenna uses situations from her life that almost any young lady can relate to. She gives girls with and without a father figure a place to turn to. their heavenly Father.

    I think this book would be great for my 10 year old niece or a girl in middle school, but being a 20 something I was disappointed. The positive and negative of this book is its down to earth nature and lack of depth. I think this book is great for teenage girls to read and study together because it deals with situations that they can relate to and also has an area to write your own thoughts. I loved the topic which is why I chose to read this book, but I would not recommend this book for the over 18 crowd simply because it lacked depth. It seemed a bit immature to me, but I can see how it would appeal to younger girls.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
