Stand: Staying Balanced With Answers for Real Teen Life is a necessary addition to every girl’s personal library. It is an easy, yet compelling book that inspires the reader to re-read and highlight passages for further review and affirmation that God and life accept us, no matter what. Perry’s advice and suggestions offer comfort and common sense instruction for the very real issues of sex, bullying, friendship, and self-affirmation that are sorely needed in the life of every young girl. I wish this book had been around when I needed it most.
