I was to have posted a review of Magna by Nicole O’Dell which is the third book in the Scenarios for Girls series but due to circumstances this week I was unable to. Nicole, being very kind and understanding, was nice enough to let me post a book spotlight while my review is still to follow. I read the first two books in this series: Truth or Dare (my review) and All That Glitters (my review) and I really enjoyed these wonderful books. These are Christian based books that portray the main character in a story and then give the reader two directions that the main character can take when she’s forced to face a tough situation. You can of course read both routes as I do. The reader gets to see what happens to the main character based on which decision she makes. These books carry many good messages for young girls as they address the pressures that young girls feel in this world today. I absolutely recommend these books and can easily say that without even having read this one yet.
About the Book (from Nicole O’Dell’s website)
Molly Jacobs isn’t sure what she should do: Should she follow through with stealing some clothes for her friends from Magna, the trendy girls clothing store where she works? Or should she do what she knows is right, even if it means disappointing her best friends and possibly losing them forever? Girls ages 10 to 15 make the choice in this interactive story and see how the consequences of the alternate endings change Molly’s life. Includes a contract and prayer to remind the reader of the importance of making godly decisions.
Nicole’s Note: I’ve worked a lot of retail jobs over the years and just like Molly in this story, I was given a promotion to Assistant Manager in Training of a clothing store in the mall when I was 15. I was faced with some of the same challenges and pressures that Molly faces at Magna. Thankfully, I made the right choices–most of the time.

These are wonderful books for young girls and mothers to share. I myself have no kids but I really enjoy these books and the lessons they teach. In today’s world, kids can use all the help they can get. Be sure to watch for my review – it’s still on the way!
