These are upbeat faith based stories that deal with issues many girls may deal with. Catie acts like a normal tween girl but has a positive outlook and comes up with pretty good solutions to her problems.

Catie Conrad Faith, Friendship, and Fashion Disasters:
About the Book:
Finally a voice in the tween genre that is relatable and no less humorous for girls aged 9 to 12 by author Angie Spady. The first book in a new series titled Desperate Diva Diaries, Catie Conrad: Faith, Friendship, and Fashion Disasters chronicles both the small triumphs and general mishaps of sixth-grade Christian want-to-be diva, Catie Conrad. While her Christian journalist father is often a co-conspirator to making Catie’s life interesting with mission trips and church projects, Catie never ceases to realize God’s hand in all situations.
What Natalie (11) thought:
It's a really good book, I like diary books. She tries to date a guy named Josh, hoping he will ask her to dances. She secretly loves him but she keeps messing up. Sometimes in front of the whole school. Also her family decides to adopt another kid. Throughout the book she is designing her own fashion. She has a sewing machine so she can actually create the fashions she designs. Her worst enemy is Miranda, one of the most popular girls in school.
About the book:
Catie Conrad, fashionista extraordinaire, is back in action in the 2nd book in the Desparate Diva Diaries series, along with best friend Sophie, her brother the “Germ,” and of course Miranda Maroni—her least favorite person on earth! The desperate diva isn’t sure which is worse: the drama at school, or her stressed-out home life.Luckily things get put into perspective as Catie Conrad finds that with faith in God, ALL things are possible.
