Girl Talk: 52 Weekly Devotions
by Lois Walfrid Johnson

Written for tween and early teen girls, Girl Talk offers weekly devotions about the situations middle school girls face like embarrassing moments, mean girls, and transitioning into a young woman.  Each entry begins with a brief Scripture, includes a story the girls can relate to, offers 7 days of questions/prayer journal prompts, etc. and concludes with a prayer.

In addition to working as a devotional for girls to use on their own, it could be used by moms and daughters together to talk through the scenarios in the readings or even used with small groups for tween girls.

My personal preference at this point with my daughter would probably be to read less made-up stories about girls and dig a little deeper into Scripture, but the book is a good fit for those who want something more topical and perhaps focused on life application and keeping an open dialogue with girls about the problems they face and how the Bible helps us handle them.
