    1. I didn t know how much I needed to read this book until I read it.Two days was all it took me I definitely identify as a good girl, and as Emily writes, it has a whole lot less to do with who you are on the outside and a lot to do with what you believe on the inside.This book was so freeing, so amazing, so true, so beautiful I loved it so much.Perfectionists This book is for you It s so right on, and so helpful So glad I read it.

    3. This is the kind of book that you don t realize how much you need to read it until you actually do and are blown away I ve read plenty of books similar to this one, but Graceful is written in such a way that the message seems almost new There is so much beautiful, refreshing truth in here that every single Christian girl will surely find something that will resound with them, no matter what kind of good girl they might be Definitely a new favorite to read and re read often.


    4. Wow This was NOT an easy book to read and yet it was Any girl who reads this book will feel like Emily s writing specifically to her and she is Emily writes in a clear and truthful way And what you read may be hard to swallow BECAUSE of the accurateness in what she writes God did a lot of work in my life through this book This is a book I will refer to again and again and that I wish every young girl could and would read As I began to read this book, I made a promise that I would be completely h [...]


    5. This book was amazing from cover to cover The cover is beautiful, and the inside is perfect This book describes me in so many ways Each chapter Freeman talks about a different side of the good girl and all of them are me This book explains so well how to let go of the try hard life while acknowledging how hard it can be Freeman is transparent and includes anecdotes that illustrate her points perfectly I would highly recommend this book.


    6. Before handing this over to my oldest to read I hope she does I wanted to read it and make sure it was something I should be recommending to her And it is In fact, even though I read the adult woman version of the book earlier this month, I also responded to this one At the beginning of the book as Freeman is introducing herself to the teen girls she hopes read the book she says, days I still feel seventeen inside I look around and wonder when the grown ups are going to show up and take care of [...]


    7. Bad grammar, narrow minded topics, shallow thinking, and too much talking not enough words It seemed like the whole book was geared towards one type of girl so I couldn t relate to the stories and topics On top of that, there was far too much talking and story telling and not enough thinking or scripture I will not be recommending this book to anyone.


    8. Emily Freeman might be my favorite Christian author Everything she writes is beautiful, golden, and God breathed So thankful for her words.


    9. This book is phenomenal I love this book because it stands out I ve read so many devotionals Christian teen self improvement books, and this one is the best I ve ever read Why Read on The author is funny, down to earth, and hits on every topic that I struggle with She writes for the dreamer, the popular girl, and the nerdy girl She writes for the captain of the soccer team, and the girl who likes art This book will actually change the way you see yourself This book applies to EVERY teen girl I t [...]


    10. I know this book was not written for my age bracket but rather high school girls I have to say though that it resonated with me and I cried when reading certain parts I think in a way Emily Freeman just understands me and speaks to my soul Her words are what I need to hear and are helping me find peace in God.



    11. Speaks lovely truth to the girls who struggle with being good It is hard work to keep up being so good Will definitely be recommending often.


    12. Emily Freeman offers rich wisdom about freedom in Christ Every church girl needs these truths I highlighted so many meaningful quotes I wish I would have heard and grasped Freeman s words as a young teenager Though I d recommend this primarily for 13 16 year olds, there are lots of good lessons for everyone


    13. I would like to thank NetGalley for my book of Freeman s book which I received in return for an honest review.This book spoke out to me and by the end of the synopsis I was hooked Being a teenager having the mind of a child while having the expectations of an adult put down upon us With school don t get me started on college , crushes, and extracurricular activities it s almost impossible to have spare time unless you shorten the number of hours you sleep While in an ideal world there are no def [...]


    14. Alert This is not really a review Just some impressions When I find myself in times of trouble no, don t sing it smile emoticon late evening and I need a book to read I resort to whatever might be in the house You may wonder how I 64 yrs old came to read a girl book Further, it is about good girls It is a book I gave to my wife a while back after she had expressed interest in the book.What is it about a book written for young women which ended up being quite an exceptional read for me I will sha [...]


    15. I received this book as a Confirmation gift last year and finally got around to reading it this year I felt like it was written for me.This book is for every girl who feels like she s not enough For the one who needs to get good grades, to be the best, to show everyone that she s got it all together.I m that girl, and as I read this book, my soul was soothed I don t have it all together no one does But that s the great gift our un loveliness and messiness is loved by God, and all we have to do i [...]


    16. It s clear that the author grew up working hard to be the good girl, and probably succeeded I read this book thinking of its potential for my own teen girls, and as a small group study resource But as a grown up, former good girl, I connected with a lot of what I read and found myself in the pages The premise is that all of us hide behind something rules, good grades, causes, image, responsibility and this hiding keeps us from ever truly being known Ms Freeman sums this up well in the first chap [...]


    17. I can tell you plenty of good things about Emily s book Grace for the Good Girl Letting Go of the Try Hard Life and when I heard about a review opportunity for a new book I jumped into it not even really looking at the book subject Graceful for Young Women Letting Go of Your Try Hard Life is an echo of things I remember reading in Grace for the Good Girl, but they are written for a younger audience with mention of school and college and jobs than motherhood and marriage as in the original book [...]

    19. The author of Grace For the Good Girl the Big Girl version of this book has written a book for teen girls that will impact a generation of up and coming women to become the very best that God has for them The message of finding your identity in Christ can be preached from the pulpit and taught in a classroom but it must become real for each young lady In this book Emily Freeman does just that I enjoyed Grace for the Good Girl and this is no different Being involved in women s ministry the main t [...]

    21. This book is fantastic I knew when I first picked it up that it was for me, with its caption Letting go of your try hard life Reading the back of the book only increased that impression.However, I realized as I read it that it really applies to a lot of girls and women though it is mainly aimed at high school girls Even if she doesn t consider herself a good girl , she likely experiences some of the pressures or voices as the author describes them It is also likely that this book would help her, [...]

    24. This is one of those books you wish you could read 1000 times over, you want to read to and with every girl in your life, and wish you had written yourself I read Grace for the Good Girl the adult version of this book and actually liked Graceful a little bit though perhaps that s because I work with high school girls Reading it feels like you and the author are getting coffee her sweet and tender tone just flows out of every page Often times books for women are lame Often times books for young [...]


    25. Oh how I wish this book had been around years ago This is an excellent book for any teen girl to read I would say any parent or teen leader should read it too It is written in a loving and easy to understand language Learning to love who you are just like the Lord loves you is a valuable lesson that all teenagers need to learn.I gave this book 5 5 stars If you know a teenage girl please buy her this book, especially if you don t think she needs it You never know what is going on in the life of y [...]


    26. Read this book with a group of 12 13 year old good girls and their moms I definitely think the moms got just as much from it as the girls, if not We divided the book over several months and discussed 1 or 2 chapters at a time, so I feel like we pretty thoroughly explored it The level it is written on was perfect for the girls, not above their heads but also not patronizing When I say these are good girls, I mean that they are girls who are driven and want to do well in multiple areas of their l [...]


    27. I wish I could give this book than 5 stars The good girl she was talking about is me, and the insights she gave were desperately needed It felt like Emily Freeman wrote this book for me Absolutely everything applied, some of her feeling and conversations I had actually had myself I mean practically word for word I got a Kindle version, but as with every book I really like I am going to buy a print version so I can copy and paste everything to my wall I am getting over my fear of writing in book [...]


    28. This book rightfully deserves 5 It really helped me to better understand who I am as a person and as a child of God It also helped me to draw closer to God and Jesus Emily P Freeman writes in a way that is very relatable I thought this book would be hard for me to relate to, but it was the exact opposite Emily writes in such a way that you can t help but feel like you have been long time friends I would recommend this to any young girl who is struggling to fit in and find out who they are, as we [...]
