Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
Sisters in Christ, I call upon you to help me guard the hearts and minds of our daughters. I know they will be entering the world soon enough, faced with such dangers on their own. Help me equip them to avoid these temptations rather than give in to them, though! I encourage you to stand up and set a good example for all of the daughters in God’s kingdom. Go before them, shining the Light of Jesus in their path, leading them in ways which are pleasing in His sight.
If you have an older tween or a teen daughter in your home, chances are you’ve heard the word “Twilight” come up in conversation. Or maybe not, but be assured it’s probably on your daughter’s radar. Twilight the movie, is based on the best-selling book series by the same name and will release in theaters on November 21st, so I thought it might be a good idea to talk about it.
TTYL (Talk to You Later) by Lauren Myracle
Is TTYL on your school library book shelves?
ttyl is a novel written in IM speak which consists of excerpts from the lives of three sophomore girls who are trying to hold onto their friendship while navigating high school. The most offensive conversations in the book have to do with a whole lot of talk about sex (of course), being seduced by a teacher who calls himself a Christian, teens getting drunk, lots of cussing and crass conversation, gossip, back stabbing, and poor family relationships The girls’ are short on character, a danger to themselves and each other and their relationships are shallow and sad.
