Why am I here? What is God’s plan for my life? Why did God make me the way I am? These are questions that everyone asks at some point in life, but especially teenagers. The teen years are a roller coaster---friends, boys, peer pressure, parents---where do you turn?
This book is written especially for teen girls who are searching for answers about life: girls who struggle with the desire to be themselves and the fear of being different. In particular, it is for Christian girls who want to know how to be unique in a world that praises conformity and who want to be Christ-like in a culture that is quick to label Christian teens as self-centered snobs or geeks.
Join Cj Carleton for a heart-to-heart talk about what it means to be a young Christian woman in today’s world. She draws from Scripture, her personal experiences growing up, and her years of working with teen girls just like you to help you build a firm foundation for your life in the truth of Christ and the Word of God. Let her challenge you through journaling and self-discovery. Get ready to learn about yourself and fulfill God’s purpose for His unique creation---you!

"Cj's passion to reach teen girls for Christ is contagious! Her writing exemplifies her deepest longing to impart biblical truth to the next generation. What Makes You Unique? is a book that 'shoots from the hip' from an author who understands the who, what, why and how of a teen girl's journey. Not a book intended to spoon feed its reader, the truths in this book truly hit home as she encourages journaling and further study throughout each chapter. I highly recommend this book for all teen girls who seek to be strengthened, challenged and inspired to be all they were created to be. All in all, this is a book that strives to live out Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you will joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit".
