Book Review - Secrets: You Tell me Yours and I'll Tell you Mine, Maybe by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein

Friday, June 11, 2010

Secrets: You Tell Me Yours and I'll Tell You Mine Maybe picks up just a few months after Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's first book, The Truth left off. Again written in diary form Dr. Holstein does a wonderful job of taking us into the mind of a barely teenage girl.

In Secrets, our heroine is facing many new challenges, a new house, a new baby sister and new school. Along with a new boy to crush and new friends to make it's going to be an emotional roller coaster of a year. The teenage years are such a crazy time of life and yet everyone deals with many of the exact same issues finding a way to connect and not feel alone in those emotional times is important.

I love the way Dr. Holstein creates a character in Truth and Secrets that is so full of teen troubles bubbling with emotion but at the same time familiar and approachable. Not a thing is lost in the transition from book one to book two of The Truth For Girls Series, Secrets is a perfect continuation. As an adult reading this book my favorite part comes near the end when Rob's Father turns out to be the waiter from the restaurant...you'll just have to read it to see what I mean but it's a great little example of how life comes full circle.

Bottom line is both Truth and Secrets are great books for girls whether they are preteens, teens or Mothers looking to relate to their daughters.

I received this book to review as part of Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion.

1 your two cents:
