Who I Am (Diary of a Teenage Girl: Caitlin, Book 3)
It's challenging enough to be a normal high school senior -- but Caitlin O'Conner has a host of new difficulties to deal with in the third book of Melody Carlson's widely popular and fascinating teen series.
Time is critical to help the orphans in Mexico, missions-minded Caitlin believes, but Mom and Dad are set on her attending college. Meanwhile, her relationship with Josh takes on a serious tone via e-mail -- threatening her commitment to "kiss dating goodbye."
When Beanie begins dating an African-American, Caitlin's concern over dating seems to be misread as racism. One thing is obvious: God is at work through this dynamic girl in very real but puzzling ways. A soul-stretching time of racial reconciliation at school and within her church helps her discover God's will as never before.

I loved this book because it really was real. I liked the way it can apply to a teenage girls' lives. I liked the way it kept you on the edge of your seat.I loved this book because it taught you how to be a good friend. The book also taught people to not judge others becuase Caitlen(the narrator)met so many people and helped so many of her friends change their lives it's really amazing.The book taught me to be open and also be a good listener at the same so that your friends can talk to you about lots of things. I enjoyed this book and I hope you will enjoy it too. So if you're a teenage girl I hope you read it enjoy it.
Great read if you ask me.......

Well like the other books in the series you will not be able to put it down(like me who read it in two days or less).you take a another 6 month journey in the life of Catlin O'conner, in this time Catlin manages to incounter racial issues, dating issues, and any other issue that comes around in a teenage girls life. But with her continuious faith in God and in herself she triumphs.So if you haven't got on the Diary of a Teenage Girl bandwagon then what are you waiting for, not only will you find it entertaining you will find a piece of yourself in Catlin as well (I know I did). Oh yeah I have to give a lot of credit to Melody Carlson for her terrific work and mention that the 4th installment of the series will becoming out july 2002 titled "On My Own"
