Diary of a Teenage Girl by Melody Carlson

The reader feels like ones life is being lived throughout the novel. Caitlin is the main female character throughout the book. We follow Caitlin's life through college, and she eventually meets the man of her life, Josh. Caitlin has known Josh since high school. We then have the opportunity to go through Caitlin's planning, and organizing her Wedding. One of her good friends Beanie takes the project upon herself to design Caitlin's Wedding dress. Beanie is a fashion major, and she creates a gorgeous gown for Caitlin.
Caitlin and Josh do not have very much money for the Wedding that they are planning, but because of their friends and family their Wedding is one of the best ever held in their area. Caitlin, the bride to be, is more concerned with following God's plan then having the perfect Wedding. Her future mother-in-law (Josh's mother) is always talking and taking Caitlin to search for her Wedding dress in expensive boutiques. So in the end the Wedding dress fashioned by Beanie is the most. The day of the Wedding at St. Mathew's Church the crowd was overwhelmed and surprised by Caitlin's dress. Her dress would be the talk of the town for months to come. The mother-in-law was left speechless.
This novel is well written, and depicts a typical college girl's thoughts on Weddings. The book also studies what goes on behind the scenes when planning a Wedding. I recommend this book to any female who is planning her great Event-Marriage.
