Buyer Beware!!!
By: Beatrice Spikes

October 10, 2015

Don't read this book thinking it's just a beautiful message from a mother to her daughter. It is SO much more! I have read this book three times and working on my fourth read. This book is for EVERY daughter,
mother, niece, cousin, sister and friend regardless of age. I defy anyone to read this book and deny having at least one moment of "Aha!" or "I wish someone had told me that yesterday, last week, last month, 10,
20, 30, 40, or 50 years ago!" or "Isn't that the truth!" If you don't come away with AT LEAST one, you'd simply be lying to yourself. There isn't one "Message" that you wouldn't want that special young lady to know
along her path to becoming self-assured, balanced, mentally, emotionally, and financially grounded. But it doesn't stop there. There are nuggets of wisdom in every chapter that will even guide the not-so-young
toward greater self-assurance, mental, emotional, and financial balance. If you're in the latter category, get a copy for yourself AND that special young lady. Trust me, you need your own copy. Better yet, get multiple
copies because every young lady you care about and love needs your guidance and they need it now. Stop being anxious about when and how to start the conversations or what to say. Read the book together,
form a book club, whatever works. Read it with courage because you'll see yourself in the messages contained within the book, and you'll no doubt reflect privately on your own life experiences. If that special young
lady is close by, be ready to reinforce the messages and talk about how they have applied to your own life experiences, what they mean to you, and what you want the messages to mean for them. Doing so will
really make the advice come alive even more, especially to young readers. If she's not close by, no worries! "Messages" is written in a format that is easy to understand, easy to follow, and hard to put down. It can
be read quite effortlessly in one day. Use the blank pages between chapters to add your own personal messages. Manette has done a fantastic job of covering all the bases, though, leaving no stone unturned. So
you'll have to think hard to find something she left out. Absolutely a great read and a must read. Enjoy!!!

A gift and guide for every female

I am sure Joey will be grateful. I know I would have and do cherish the messages you have in this book. The fact that the messages are written is
immeasurable! Hearing is one thing, but seeing and being able to go back and refer is truly PRICELESS!!! I can't wait to give the books to my 3
nieces for Christmas!!!

Messages for Joey is a must read! It's very comprehensive and supremely uplifting. Since reading this book i've been inspired to write my own novel, and it has definitely given me more motivation towards my
future goals.

Perfect book for any parent wanting to give their child some great advice on managing the many ups and downs in life.

This book is both outstanding and practical and providential.

It was a page turner...even though I have covered those steps many times beyond my own offspring. As a former teacher, the longer I taught, the more freely I shared "words of wisdom" with my students. This book
should be required reading for juniors and beyond.  I absolutely adore it. I know the author has a very vested interest in her own family/daughter, but it will truly benefit every reader.

Incredible and perfect! My daughter will always have these awesome insights and lessons to read over and over. So good and relevant for all but especially for girls coming of age in a confusing world.

Refreshing and empowering advice!

We would live in a different world if more children were guided by the messages written on each page of this book! Ms. Manette's loving and common
sense advice to her daughter consistently reinforces the ideas of self-empowerment and personal responsibility. Page after page, the message is clear
that Joey is in control of the outcome of her life and that it starts with small decisions and actions made day after day. Although this book was written for
her young daughter, it easily translates over to sons, sisters, brothers, best friends and other loved ones. It's refreshing to read these pages and know
that these values and ideas still hold true in today's world.

Please check out this book...

My book arrived 2 days ago so today I sat on my patio & read it from cover to cover. It's about a 2 hour read. I must say you did an excellent job. What a wonderful gift for you to give to your daughter and to share with
all of us. There was so much in this book that was passed down to me from my mother and that I have passed on to my girls and other young ladies over the years. Your daughter is truly blessed to have you as a

Wonderful book with great advice on every page!

I loved this book! Beautifully written with practical solid advice on every page. I read it in one sitting because I couldn't wait to read what was going to be next. I find
myself picking it up over and over finding new messages and meaning every time. Pretty much every life lesson is in this book. Being a mother of two children I can see myself turning to this book to get through life,
not only for theirs but mine as well!
