I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.

We received a paperback version of this Bible for review purposes. The look of this Bible would be nice for boys or girls about ages 10-13 or so. I think that older teens would prefer a study Bible, but this might be a great segue from a children's Bible to a study Bible. The font is a nice size and the extra features are fun to read, but I think mostly a little light for older students.
The one area you might want to consider with this Bible is the Dear Jordan portion. Some of these topics are pretty heavy, rape, incest, abortion, Aids, alcoholic parents, cyber sex...just check into that and see if you think these are appropriate for your family. There is a list of the back under the title Teen Life Index and you can get a feel for how this would work in your home.
The Preview sections give a basic rundown of what is happening in the book, with some key things pointed out. I think these sections are nice so you have a little background into what you are studying.
In our home, our older boy was not interested in this and my younger boy was too young for the topics covered in the Dear Jordan sections. My daughter liked the look of the Bible, but I don't want these topics brought up to her either right now.
