If you and the tween girl in your life have despaired of finding a book that addresses the subject of skin and body care without the sleaze of the average magazine on the newsstand, your search is over. Nancy Rue has written a wonderful book that provides young girls with practical advice as well as Biblical truths that they are fearfully and wonderfully made and that true beauty comes from within. Chapters cover such topics as types of hair and the care and styling of each, skin care including pimples and shaving and make-up tips, and clothing and accessories, all approached from a Christian world view. Verses and examples from the Bible are discussed in an encouraging way without being preachy. My girl has the previously-released version of this book, Beauty Lab, and has referred to it frequently. I highly recommend The Skin You're In.
