316410: The Truth About Dating, Love & Just Being Friends The Truth About Dating, Love & Just Being Friends
By Chad Eastham / Thomas Nelson
I'm running late on this review of Chad Eastham's "The Truth About Dating, Love & Just Being Friends" since it was published over a year ago! Maybe it's for a reason though...maybe this is a book that we need to be reminded that it's out there and a great book for our teens on not only dating, but relationships in general! I was first introduced to Eastham's writing when my teenage daughter picked up a copy of his book "Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti." His writing relates to teens! There is so much practical information in this book about friendship, relating to the opposite sex, dating etc.! The information is written though so that it's not overwhelming to teens. They can flip it open somewhere in the middle and find a list that captures their attention such as "Dumb dating things even smart people do" or "10 things you should never say to a guy" and begin reading. "The Truth about Dating..." contains many interactive sections where teens can write and process what is being discussed like crazy, mixed-up emotions. Chad also includes questions from "real teens" that the "real Chad" answers in a conversational way not like a lecture from an "adult"! Having raised four teenagers of my own, this is one book that is at the top of my mom-recommended list for girls or guys – along with Chad’s other book “Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti”!
