With topics such as The Way God Changed My Life, Getting To Know God and the A-Z Of Being A Christian, Something To Shout About is a fun magazine-like book from the popular singer, songwriter and communicator which will undoubtedly attract and also help many young girly readers. Particular highlights can be found in three chapters entitled Problem Page: LIFE, BODY and GOD which are styled as Agony Aunt pages - this is a brilliant concept to answer some basic questions most young people have had at one time or another. Readers can check out what Shell's husband Tim thinks of his wife, and also flick through Shell's family photos. Although admittedly some information in the book is now outdated, eg, pictures of the old line up of tbc, this book is a great resource for youth leaders of young people 12 years and under wishing to know more about the Christian faith.
