Have you ever worried about how you look? Have you ever felt alone and scared starting a new school? These are a few wonderful yet extremely sensitive issues Dr. Barbara discusses in her new book Secrets: You tell Me Yours and I'll tell You Mine... maybe.
I did a review for Barbara's first book, The Truth and liked it very much but I must say this one in A Truth Series Book is tops and by far her very best writing. Not only could I relate to all the subjects touched upon in her book but I thought of my own daughters when they were experiencing many of these common heartfelt emotions and feelings.
There are so many wonderful highlights in her book to share with you. I remember how our daughter felt when we announced she had a new baby brother. Her response was, "Darn it", hoping for another sister!
Barbara's writings cover a gamut of emotion from sibling jealousy, fears and insecurities, lying to a friend, embarrassment and feeling safe. You will laugh when you read about the main character overly focusing on her big butt and wanting it to be smaller. And howling over training bras and her response, "I really don't want to train my breasts and that's the truth." At the same time, your heart is touched when you see the same girl who is about to shave her legs, hugs her dolls, talks to them and cries.
Dr. Barbara's experience as a school psychologist shines brightly in her book of wisdom, truth, humor and love. Barbara Becker Holstein's gift to every girl and their parents is "Secrets".
Get the book, I highly recommend this one! ***** stars!
