The Bare Naked Truth by Bekah Hamrick Martin

About the Book:

The Truth About Sex and Waiting ... Uncovered

Purity. Sex. Boys. Waiting. There's something about those words that makes everything complex in a heartbeat, and raises more questions than answers. Is there something wrong with me if I don't kiss a boy after a date? Or am I doomed if I DID? What if waiting is just a one-way trip to life as a crazy cat woman? And what if I tend to, um, think about a certain boy in a certain way? It seems that the lady at church and your friends have two very different opinions on the subject. And 'Your Budding Womanhood: Staying a Beautiful Flower for Jesus' just isn't cutting it.

Bekah Hamrick Martin knows the waiting game isn't easy or straight-forward. In The Bare Naked Truth, she lays everything on the table---including some embarrassing moments---as she explores the honest, naked truth behind what God means by purity. With additional entries from popular authors, you'll see the bare naked approach to waiting isn't always easy, but it's worth the risk.

My Thoughts:

Where was this book when I was a teenager???  Oh, the things I could have learned from reading Bekah's book and the pain I would have been spared!  This is a must-read for every pre-teen, teen and young adult female I know.

Bekah shares with humor and in a very conversational style.  She's transparent in what she shares, and she's invited friends to come along on this journey to purity.  A variety of women from many walks of life and of different ages share honestly about their experiences and journeys.

Some of the women have heart wrenching stories to share...but all of them have one thing in common.


Seriously, this might be the most important book your child (or you) read about purity.  And no topic is off limits, so be warned.  Bekah pretty much covers it all...or uncovers it, depending how you look at it all.

I received an advance copy of "The Bare Naked Truth" via NetGalley from LitFuse Publicity in exchange for taking part in a virtual book tour.  Highly recommended (this is one of those books that, if I were independently wealthy would buy and distribute to every middle and high school in the country!).

Happy Reading!
