This book is not another Christian-teenage-girl "survival guide." So Much More shows how Christian girls can wage war with the world and win. The Botkin sisters focus on how young women can rise above their God-hating culture and change it for the better.

Today, countless young ladies face difficult problems and challenging questions. While many long for godly purpose in their lives, their bewilderment mounts when they observe broken homes, distant fathers, overwhelmed mothers, degrading college courses, and a lack of spiritual guidance—both at home and at church. As hope for security and stability fades, it is no wonder that many young ladies feel orphaned, unprotected, and without hope for their futures.

Within the pages of this book, discover practical, biblical solutions for the young woman who wants to do so much more than just "survive" in a savagely feministic, anti-Christian culture. Find the answers a girl is not likely to get from her church, her peers, or her culture.

  A Good Book For Girls To Read...
Amanda Evans of Exodus Books, 10/16/2008
... as they think about God's purpose for their lives.

This is a book written by young women, for young women. Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin, along with quotations and stories from 14 other young women, have put together this thought-provoking book that will turn the hearts of daughters first to their fathers, eventually to their husbands, and ultimately to God. Though the authors are young, they definitely know what they're talking about. Their family dinner table was often surrounded by university students seeking the comfort and security that a godly family provides. Because they grew up listening to and conversing with disillusioned and confused college girls, they were inspired to write this book. Written in easy to read question and answer format, this book raises questions such as: "How can I bless my father's vision?" "What is a real woman?" "Do women have a calling outside the home?" "What about higher education?" "Isn't there a time in a girl's life when she should be indepentant of family?" "How can I be a good sister and build up my brothers and sisters?" "Is remaining unmarried a legitimate choice?" "Where do missions fit in?" "How do I become a woman of vision?" "How is one to prepare for being a suitable helpmeet if one's entire life up until marriage has been filled with a 'me-first' mentality?" and many others. The authors have thoroughly researched and thought out their answers, but most importantly, they are constantly going back to what the Bible says about each of these important issues in a young woman's life. There is also an appendix called "Advice to Fathers," written by the authors' father, Geoffrey Botkin.

I haven't yet read this book, but after giving it a very thorough purusal I can definitely recommend it for young women seeking to find their place in God's kingdom.
