Growing Pains

Growing Pains
Kendra's Diaries
by K.P. Smith

This is one of the books in the blogger contest. Check out my Christmas contest page for instructions on how to win this and many other books.

This book is about an 13 year old girl and her life in 8th grade. She lives in New Orleans and goes to private school. Her life is no different then the average 8th grader. It has the fighting family members, stresses of work and school and the sometimes pain of a younger sibling. It also has watching football with dad, shopping with mom and hanging out with friends.

The story had some sad moments, but on the whole is a positive look at a young girl's life. It's definitely something I would let my daughter read. Well written and tastefully done.
Because the book ends at the beginning of Kendra's freshman year in high school I can see this becoming a series for young girls. Even though I'm an adult I would enjoy reading more about Kendra in the future.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
