“Why are there mashed potatoes on the Mona Lisa?” —Connie
You are worth more than a world-famous painting. But sometimes life gets messy, and we can forget how special we are. Hurtful words from friends or “frenemies,” peer pressure, and clique drama can cover up the beautiful work of art God created us to be.
In volume 2 of Candid Conversations with Connie, you’ll join a picnic with the crew from Odyssey as they honestly discuss important questions that affect girls like you.
Who am I, really?
What do I do when I don’t fit in?
How do I handle a mean girl?
Why are boys so weird?
Through fun stories and activities, you’ll grow in your ability to make the best decisions about boys, spiritual matters, and friendships. Read this book by yourself, with your mom, or with a group of friends and enjoy growing up God’s way!

Welcome to Candid Conversations with Connie, Volume 2! And these conversations are going to be very candid. In this book we’re only taking questions from girls! Yep, they can ask whatever they want, and I will answer from my vast knowledge and experience. (Well . . . maybe not vast.) If I don’t know the answer, I’ll ask my friend Penny. We’ve been where you are, and we know what it’s like.
You’re not a little girl anymore, but you’re still years off from adulthood. You still like to play, but you also enjoy having long conversations with friends. You sometimes want to cuddle on your mom’s lap, and other times you wish she would just leave you alone. All that’s pretty normal, and you’ll see that from the questions we’re answering.
