The book Love, Lexi by Sherry Kyle is a stand-alone devotional directed towards pre-teens and tweens. The book is written stylistically as the personal journal of Alexis (Lexi) Dawn Cooper during her seventh grade year. It shows her ups and downs, her awkward moments, her attempts to be popular and stylish, and her crush on a boy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but there were some things that I felt like they didn’t match with reality. For one, it was a story of a boring, awkward girl who tries to become glam and a part of the “cool kids” club. It also illustrates her crush on a boy that she has known since the first grade and seems to really like as she pursues a relationship with him. I thought that this book was a little typical: awkward girl wants to become cool and get the cute boy. I did enjoy her hilarious quirks and fun moments, however, and I would definitely recommend this book to girls ages 10-12.
