The best part about these books is that they are about issues that tween girls actually face. The books don't just tell a traditional story. Rather, they tell a story with a twist. Each book is about a character who has to make an important, life-changing decision. They can make a good choice, or a poor choice. The reader gets to decide which choice to read first, and then see the ramifications of that choice. It's a brilliant idea, really. Especially for this age range, I think it's important to have the ramifications of choices clearly illustrated, and these books do that.
I had my almost tween daughter read these books, and this is what she had to say,
"I liked them. They were a good lesson. I liked being able to read about both choices. The stories were interesting, and when I'm older I think I will relate to the characters in the stories".
These books are written with a clearly Christian viewpoint (to learn more about Nicole O'Dell, visit here) and discuss morals and values that I think most of us teach our own children. It's refreshing to see this in books that will hold a tweens attention, without sounding like a sermon.
