Using the metaphor of screenwriting, My Life, Unscripted explores relationships in every teenage girl's life--with herself, her friends and enemies, her parents, guys, and with God.
Real-life scripts, screenwriting terms, and timely topics, make this an interesting read for teen girls as they delve into their own inner struggles and outward relationships. They'll also learn the importance of "scripting" their own responses BEFORE challenging life-situations arise and are able to think about, pray about, and consider how to face these situations before the scene begins. By contrasting real-life with TV or movies, teens will understand they don't have to get caught up in the drama.
In My Life, Unscripted, the author takes real-life scenarios from her teen years and creates valuable lessons from her experiences. Quotes from other teen girls and tidbits of their thoughts are interspersed throughout the book as well. I liked how everything tied together with Scripture and every scene was used to illustrate a point in the lesson. The screenwriting metaphor also made for an interesting set-up and the book was easy to follow. A great resource for teen girls. So check it out!
My Life, Unscripted was published by Thomas Nelson and released in Sept. 2007.
