Overview

It's My Life (Diary of a Teenage Girl Series #2) by Melody Carlson

In this emotional sequel to Diary of a Teenage Girl, Caitlin O'Conner faces new trials as she grows in her faith and strives to maintain the recent commitments she's made to God. As a new believer, Caitlin begins her summer job and makes preparations for a Mexico mission trip with her church youth group. Torn between new spiritual directions and loyalty to Beanie, her best friend (now pregnant), Caitlin searches out her personal values on friendship, romance, dating, life goals, and key relationships with God and family. Tough choices threaten her progress, and her year climaxes in her realization that maturity sometimes means life-impacting decisions must be made ... by faith alone.

Caitlin O¿ Conner¿s life has changed quite a bit over the past year. Turning seventeen, she has realized that not everything is all candy canes and gum drops. When a missions trip with her church to Mexico, everything changes. Caitlin learns to help others by starting an organization to help the less fortunate. Life is just full of all kinds of secrets, her friends hiding things from her, temptations Caitlin never thought she would have, and challenges with her newfound faith. Yea, you could say this is the normal life of a teenager.

I liked this book because its about a Christian who doesn't have a perfect life. Like, other books I've read about Christian girls have perfect lives except like boyfriend problem or whatever. It's refreshing to read about a Christian girl who has a difficult life but can still stay a strong Christian.

A Girl Trying To Follow the Right Path Caitlin O¿Conner is now back in the second novel, of the series, It¿s My Life. Caitlin returns to school as a senior. She¿s really excited because she waited for her senior year her whole life. Since Caitlin always has a lot on her mind, she decided to start writing in her diary again. Well as usual, Caitlin is still sticking with her commitment to God. She is starting to have doubts about her commitment with God. She tries putting that behind her, so she can go down to Mexico to help the poor kids. While Caitlin, Beanie, and the youth group were down there, Beanie and Caitlin found some kids that lived in this dump place. They felt really bad for them, so they brought the kids some food. When they got back from Mexico, Caitlin starts a fund raiser for the poor kids down in Mexico. While Caitlin is doing this fund raiser, something bad happens to Beanie. Caitlin couldn¿t believe it. When Caitlin and Beanie got past it they went back to school, and Jenny, a popular girl, started hanging out with them. After Jenny was hanging out with them for a while, Jenny comes down with something. Beanie and Caitlin didn¿t know what to do. What happened to Beanie that was so bad? What did Jenny come down with? Is it horrific? I thought that this book was really good. I liked this book because only one person is telling the story, so that makes it easier to read. I really liked how I could relate to the book in many ways. I could relate to the different emotions in the book, and different scenes in the book. I also liked how there were parts in the book where there were different emotions. Also, I liked how some parts got you very nervous. The only thing I didn¿t like about the book was that it stated off kind of slow, but it picked up after a couple of chapters. This book, It¿s My Life, is part of a series. I don¿t think that these books can be read out of order because you wouldn¿t get the book at all. You wouldn¿t understand what is going on. People, I think, that would enjoy this book are people who want to learn more about God, and people who like different emotions. I think these kind of people would like this book because it ahs a lot to do with God and how good He is. Also, I think people who like different emotions will enjoy this book because this book has a ton of different emotions that will capture you. I think that this is a very good book, and if you pick it up you won¿t be able to put it down.

How would you feel if your best friend was pregnant, you make a vow to God not to date, your aunt is getting married, and on top of all of that, God has called you to be a missionary? Beanie is Caitlin¿s best friend, and she is pregnant. Caitlin made a vow to God not to date boys, because she doesn¿t focus well. Caitlin is leaving soon after school is released to go to Mexico with her youth group to help the needy. While in Mexico, Caitlin finds a group of children that are always around a dump and begins to love them, and bring them food. When leaving Mexico, Caitlin realizes that she needs to go back again to help the kids. Clay, the youth group leader, died from a gun shot. Jenny stopped eating in school, and she became anorexic. Her mom took her to an institution where she stayed there all day and people could visit her. Caitlin¿s Aunt Steph is getting married to Pastor Tony. God has called on Caitlin to be a missionary and along with someone else in the book. Read to find out whom. I really enjoyed reading It¿s My Life in the series Diary of a Teenage Girl by Melody Carlson. I could relate to the book because Caitlin is a teenager and she goes through a lot in her life. One thing that I didn¿t like about It¿s My Life was that it was a little confusing when the youth group was in Mexico. Other than that I really enjoyed reading this book. It¿s My Life is part of a series called Diary of a Teenage Girl. You have to the books in order to understand them. The people that would enjoy this book would probably be teenage girls, because it is filled with drama and everything else in a teenager¿s life. This series of books is very similar to the Color books by Melody Carlson, because that series is also related to teenage girls that have problems and difficulties. This book is a page-turner throughout the whole book!

Well, what can I say? This book is about a girl named Caitlin, who¿s a senior in High School. She is trying to get close to god, by helping her friends who are troubled with problems,and trying not to date guys. Caitlin joined a youth group at her church and she and the other members of the group get to go to Mexico and the trip changes her life and relationship with god. Her friends help her a lot in the book too by getting over things. Even though she has fights with her friends and family she still comes out strong. I didn¿t have any dislikes on the book it was all very good. But there were some parts that were a bit boring to me, but I still liked the book very much because I was always wondering what was going top happen next.

The Diary of a Young Girl is a great story about Anne Frank. From not knowing what really happened and not knowing very many details about the time of WWII, this is such a great book to just to pick up and read about the time. This girl lived a crazy life not knowing what the next day was going to bring her or what corner to turn. Her life was spinning with all new things going on around her. With only being thirteen and so open-minded, she was just a lost soul. Anne was a powerful young woman who wanted to know what was going on. With living through the Holocaust and the war, Anne had to struggle through a lot. First of all, she was Jewish and living through the Holocaust and being Jewish wasn¿t an easy life. Anne wrote the truth without holding anything back: the pain, fear, and the horror that she had to live through each day. Anne Frank was a hero to many even to this day.. Anne Frank died at the age of fifteen. That just makes you realize that life is too short so don¿t waste your time and mess it up. Anne really made me open my eyes to things and just to life in general. Don¿t take life for granted. Anne Frank was a true hero so it is my opinion to recommend this book. Its just not a diary, it really makes you think how you want to stay on your feet and succeed in life. This book was about a girl named Caitlin who was in her teens who wanted everything. She was involved in church and was going on missionary trip to Mexico. She was very into God. She would always rely on God to talk to about all her problems. Throughout the book she wrote diary entrees about her day and the problems that she is having or what was going on in her friends¿ lives. She had a great life with a great head on her shoulders. On the other hand her best friend, Beanie, was also a great person but with a lot of problems in her life at such a young age. She was pregnant as a teenager with no support from the father of the baby. When Beanie found out she was pregnant, Caitlin and Beanie started to drift apart as best friends. Then this lead Caitlin to a new best friend, Andrea. Throughout the book the girls started hanging out with the wrong crowd and lead to life going down hill. Caitlin helped some other friends get back on their feet from the drug uses. This book really got to me because right now in my life all of these problems are happening to one of my friends. So for me, this book was very touchy on things important to me. This book is an eye opener for teens everywhere because you might have a perfect life but someone around you might not have one. So reading this book helped me learn a lot about different kids in my school and helping me understand life and family issues better.

it was okay, make sure that if you read it you really like to read things that have to do with God. I'm a Christan too and everything, but she was like obsessed with her faith. I guess I just didn't agree with a lot of it and it seemed sorta fictional.

usually i am stuck reading a book about the soap opera like problems of some teary eyed drama queen or about the ultra-unrealistic life of a rich snob. I really needed a new taste to refresh my opinion about today's teen books. Melody Carlson is completly renivating. It's nice to see a book that relates to me, and is not full of sex and drugs and clothes. Also it talks about God. And being a Christian myself, it was really nice to see that there are books out there that can be spiritually uplifting and not be too preachy. Overall, it was the best book i've read this year!

I loved this book, it does deal with great issues that teenage girls go thru 24/7. And the way it's written puts you inside Caitlin's life, mind, and spirit. You can feel with her and cry with her and get mad at all the people who are being rather dumb around her. This book and the one before it is very well written and I cannot wait to get the third one which I plan on doing tomorrow! My compliments to Ms. Melody Carlson-great job!

I think this is a GREAT book. The way it shows inside a girl's heart and mind, how some girls really do try to please God and live morally, not giving in to the weaker one (devil) but being strong. Very inspirational! Young girls will love it. What a breath of fresh air. Can't say 'thank you' enough to the author. This book is REAL.

I loved this book! I would recommend it for all teenage girls! It deals with tough issues that teen girls go through daily. It is about Caitlyn who is trying to live her life that way God wants her to in a world that this is not easy to do! It really got me thinking about lots of different issues! Even if you have never read the first one, I would still get this one because it is easy to figure out what happened! It is an awesome book!
