Sound familiar?
 1. You spot a cute boy (we'll call him Boy A).
2. You dream about Boy A.
3. You do whatever it takes to make Boy A notice you.
4. Even though Boy A doesn't pursue you, you hang on to your dream of Boy A until he (a) moves to the North Pole with no access to a cell phone or computer, (b) dies and is buried or cremated, or (c) begins dating another girl.
5. You mend your broken heart by hating Boy A and finding another cute boy (Boy B). You replace Boy A with Boy B and begin all over again . . .

 Paula has gone through an entire alphabet-and more-of boys over the years.
As she shares her journal entries and stories-the good, the bad, and the ugly-you'll be encouraged to trust God with your love life and buckle up for the ride!
Written for teen girls, Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl will help you on your own journey from neediness to freedom.

My Impressions:

This was an inspiring book all together. I could hardly wait for the book to arrive and then when it did, my 14 year old daughter snagged it before I got a chance to look at it. Although its been a few years (or maybe more), I remember being that same boy-crazed girl who could not get enough of what ever boy I was madly crushing on. Waiting to see him, stealing glances, spending time with him, brushing against him “accidentally”, etc. Basically desperate to get him to notice me, desire me and want me. I could have easily wrote this book myself, it felt so familiar to me.

What impressed me about this book was how Paula weaved Gods truth throughout the whole thing. Reminding us that our hope, love, security should be found in His love for us, not some boy we are crushing on that will never give us what we really need! There is so much wisdom packed into this little book that its mind boggling at times. So simple, yet so complex. We all have this romantic idea of what love is and should be and sadly the entertainment industry helps us glorify it more. Paula reminds us time and again what love is and is not, by showing us glimpses of God and His hearts desire for us all.

Although I am way outside the age range for this book that was wrote for tweens, teens and young adults, the principles and promises still hold true. This is an easy one that I can recommend for mothers and daughters to sit down together and discuss and go through to strengthen their bond.
