Book Description from the publisher:

Would you rather be liked online—or loved in person?

Social media can be great. But for girls growing up in a generation saturated with social media, getting enough “likes,” comments, and online friends can become an unhealthy obsession.

In Liked, Kari Kampakis offers positive and powerful insights to help girls navigate the digital age. Applying God’s timeless truths to modern realities, this unique resource dives deeply into topics like social media, friendship, identity, and faith—while ultimately encouraging habits that lead to real and lasting relationships.

Liked can help girls think through those questions that may stir wildly in their mind and heart, such as:
Who am I? What is my purpose? How can I change the world and make an eternal difference? How can I love myself when I feel unlovable? For anyone tired of the quest to impress—and ready to rest in God’s unconditional love—Liked is the answer. This book is a conversation-starter that will quickly unite mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends by speaking to the female heart and addressing the need for approval with wisdom, hope, and grace.

My Review:
"Liked" is a must-read for parents of pre-teen and teen girls!  In today's society, social media is such a big thing and it does become an obsession as far as how many friends and "likes" people can get on their pictures.  While this can be an issue with boys as well, it more seems to be more of a hot topic with girls as they tend to express more of their unhappiness with body image and just how they feel about themselves overall, not to mention how sexualized girls are at young ages.  Kari does a great job with diving into this issue and offers ways to connect in person, most importantly how mothers and daughters can connect and offer wisdom with being safe and smart on social media, but most importantly feeling good and comfortable with yourself and how God has created you.
