This book designed for 9-13s is written in a chatty informal style that helpfully addresses the issues that age group and many others face when thinking about their identity.
The author skilfully engages with the struggles that young people have in having a positive self-image. The book gently challenges the attitudes and behaviours that squeeze our identity out of shape, builds a robust biblical framework for seeing who we are in relation to God, and provides lots of practical help on how we can become the person that God wants us to be.
Topics like being made in the image of God, the gospel of grace, and spiritual disciplines of Bible reading, pray, fellowship with others and learning to hit the pause button to rest are all dealt with in a simple but useful way.
I guess that if we bought this book for a young person we know, we might find ourselves reading it over their shoulder.
Here are wise words imaginatively shared, beautifully illustrated and faithfully applied. What is there not to like?
