I picked up this book in my attempt to read more diverse books that are outside of my faith, and in some cases also outside of my comfort zone. But what I found instead was a universally gentle book on teaching young teens and women their personal value, no matter what faith. Sure, there was a mentioning of the Bible, and references to the Scriptures, which is what I expected with a title from that genre, but it wasn’t pushy and in your face, as some other books with religious undertones I have read in the past. The Author of Me, Myself And Lies For Young Women – Jennifer Rothchild, had a very firm grasp about how and what her target audience thinks, what they do, and which kind of world they live in – and that was refreshing. After just having finished a book that did not take the time to clearly identify with whom it was meant to serve, it was great to read a book from an Author who did understand the importance of that concept I love the metaphors that were used throughout the book to describe the message, centering around “cleaning out and filling your closet” with positive values and thoughts. The exercises presented in the book – which would make good journal prompts for young women – were contemporary and not preachy, but uplifting and well-formed. My favorite part was when she talked about labels, and stated that giving yourself positive and true labels are like wearing “designer labels”. Quote: These are your designer labels, and they’re the look that really works for you. Go ahead and try them on. Then look in the mirror and see how great they look on you!” I really enjoyed reading this book, as it was uplifting, gentle, and stayed true in message and voice, fitting perfectly for the intended target audience, with a message that transcends faith – the importance of self-confidence, self-value, and self-esteem.
I really liked Me, Myself and Lies for Young Women. Unlike other books I've read, it does not focus on what other people say about you and how to deal with that, but with the things that you say to yourself. Jennifer Rothschild helps the reader discover when they tell themselves lies and drag themselves down. She then gives tips on how to talk to yourself and building yourself up with biblical thruths. The style of writing is very good and appropriate for the intended reader. The examples are relatable and describe every day situations that every school-age girl knows. And the idea of having a "thought closet" might feel a little strange at first, but I think that it is a very good metaphor. This book would be a great gift for any young (Christian) girl (age 13-18). College age girls would probably also like it, but might feel a little too old for the example situations (but there is another version for older girls and women). It might also be fun to read it with a group of girlfriends and encourage each other. Disclaimer: I received a free copy via Netgalley from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
