Girl Talk has over 200 pages. It is a full-color book filled with questions from teen girls. The pages are glossy and beautiful. Nicole and her daughters, Natalie and Emily answer the questions. This book can be used in different ways. A teen can read it by herself, with her sisters or friends or even for some great mother-daughter time. That is how I am using it in my home with my preteen daughter. We are going through it a page at a time and talking about the topic and the answers that were given. I let her share with me what she thinks and then I share a bit more of what I think and what the Bible says about it. We go a bit deeper with the answers given in the book and take it into whatever questions along that line my daughter might have.
It is a wonderful book. Nicole has a love for teens that shines through in her writing. I recommend this book and any other books you can get your hands on by Nicole. You can't go wrong with any of them!
