When I got hold of the book Hot by Laura Smith last month, I found it fitting to have a couple of the girls that I disciple in church to read it ahead of me. For one, I requested this book from Navpress with the girls on my mind, to begin with. They handed it back to me in a week’s time. Both of them are done with the book already and one of them has posted a review in one of her blogs as well.
I can say from their responses that they both have immensely enjoyed reading and learning invaluable lessons from Laura Smith’s book, Hot. The book talks about primarily what teenagers face – the need to belong, problems with the family, school and friends. The book reinforces the importance of having good parents and even church family for support system.
Lindsey, the book’s main character, deals with the sexual temptations, trials and triumphs. Sharing principles along the way how it is not just practical but also feasible to do what is right.
This book is a good read not just the youth. I also encourage the parents to read this as well for insights outside of our being just parents filled with everyday concerns.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
