ENOUGH book review & Giveaway

My oldest is starting High School this year. I have looked up and researched, til my fingers are sore, all the things that can {and will}  befall my son.  High School wasn’t an easy time for me, I fear that it will be difficult for my kids as well.

Then it hit me my second child will be in middle school next year! My daughter will be a “tween” in one short year! {how did that happen?}  And while I know a lot of the things that my son will be going through this year I felt a little lost as to what my daughter will be going through over the next couple of years.  Girls and boys are so different and I haven’t had a girl go through the tween/teen years.  I feel a little unprepared for a girl, even though I was  teen myself not to long ago.

This book Enough was such a great read and put many of the fear I have for my daughter {and son} to rest.



I love that the author, Kate Conner, is young and so smart.  She has a great way of explaining how teen feel about things and the things that they need to hear from those around them.



It’s a great read for any parent of a teen or a teen themselves.  I am so excited to be able to giveaway one copy of ENOUGH to one of your lovely readers!

  4. You can do anything you put your mind to.

  5. I think the best advice I ever got was that it’s okay to be different–just because EVERYONE is doing something, it doesn’t mean you have to if it’s not the right thing to do. 🙂

  6. So thankful you shared this book. We’re dealing with the tween-teen years right now and it’s a lot tougher with social media getting in the way.

    I was always told that my character speaks louder than anything negative people can say. Kids are mean, and like to make up stories about people, but if your character is in good standing, none of that ugly will be able to stick. People who know you will know that you are a good person, regardless of the stories being passed around about you.

  7. Oh boy … I have a teen and a tween and already am feeling overwhelmed with all the “bigger” issues. Hmmm … best piece of advice … nothing good ever happens after midnight so you might as well go home 🙂

  8. The best advice i got as a teen was that its ok to be different.. But always be yourself

  9. My daughter has a while to go, but I think it’s never too early to prepare for really talking to your kids.

    Advice… hmm. Never be afraid to admit you’ve made a mistake. It goes a long way.

  10. Wow, this book sounds amazing. I think the bit of advice that I would offer any teen is, “Embrace yourself. Don’t let others define you…you define yourself!”
