"Body and Soul" by Bethany Hamilton

Geared at young women and pre-teen girls, this book is full of advice for how to be happy and healthy.  From exercising to eating a nutritious diet to making friends, this book has it all.  Girls are encouraged to eat well and have fun while working out.  There are even parts of the book where Bethany shares her own personal struggles as a female.  Her individual stories make the book feel as if the reader is chatting with her in a coffee shop.  In terms of spirituality, Bethany discusses her own faith and encourages girls to seek spiritual matters.  There are Christian undertones in this book but they are not overwhelming.  Overall, this was a nice book.  The font and graphics were well done, too.
