    • I tried 4 times to read this book. Had high hopes because so many people I knew were reading it.When I expressed my frustration; someone said it wasn't meant for older women. HA! Guess that explains a lot. Maybe, I should have taken the *Girl* in the title a bit more literally. All the me, me, me was just more than I could handle. Seemed more like an autobiography than a self-help book.
    • I thought this was supposed to be a self help book. Or at least a how to overcome adversity book. It was neither.I had never heard of the author but amazon recommended it to me and I had an audible credit so I decided to get it.I did not finish it, but I made it about 3/4 of the way through.Maybe it’s a generational thing. I am 50 years old. On the other hand, I have read a vast spectrum of books from many authors of different ages, and I have never had a problem. I could not identify with this girl at all.Is this the result of everyone getting participation trophies while growing up? I am all for admitting when I am wrong or I don’t understand, but if I would guess the majority of the people in this country would love to have the problems that this girl thinks she has. And unfortunately, I had no idea this was going to be a Christian thing. I should have researched that. I’m just mentioning it as a warning to anyone else out there who doesn’t think praying necessarily solves anything.Thank goodness Audible allows you to return a book, because that is what I did.
    • I thought it was fine for a woman's inspirational book until she got judgy and in my opinion, a bit too religious. I stopped reading halfway through after her garbage sex advice.
    • I found this book to be a lot different than I expected. A lot of the material did not apply to me because I am not yet a mother and it wasn't really the type of reading I had hoped it would be. I am willing to give it a reread after my first child. There was nothing in this book that motivated me.
