Ages: Tweens & Teens


For girls growing up in a generation saturated with social media, getting enough "likes," comments, and online friends can become an unhealthy obsession.

With positive and powerful insights, Kari Kampakis encourages girls to apply God's timeless truths in the digital age. Diving deeply into topics like social media, friendship, identity, and faith. LIKED helps girls think through those questions that may stir wildly in their mind and heart.

Why this book might be for you: 

Look all around you. Young girls are being bombarded with social messages to conform to a certain image and that pressure to conform is starting as soon as elementary school. Scantily dressed celebrities entice them to question their identities at an earlier age and the internet with all it's social sites are sometimes pressuring them into questionable behavior.

So where do parents turn when they want to help their young daughters make informed decisions about the choices they make?

That's where author, Kari Kampakis, steps in. Whether Christian or a follower of another religion, there are still nuggets of wisdom to be found inside LIKED. Chapters cover topics such as confidence, kindness, character, humility, courage, and direction.

Fictional stories and real life experiences, as well as guided question prompts at the end of each chapter, help young ladies (and their parents) relate to the material provided while giving guidelines on living a life with no regrets.

The main message running through Ms. Kampakis' book is for readers to pursue more face to face relationships, enabling strong personal growth, and to use caution when engaging in online conversations. While targeting tween and teenage girls, the ideas found in LIKED can readily be applied to any child struggling with self image and how to make the right choices in an ever changing world of expectations.

Definitely worth a concerned parent's time to check it out.
