This new young adult book by Tricia Goyer is both unique and compelling. What makes it so interesting (though not entirely “unscripted”) is the fact that the book is made up of actual scripts, both fiction and nonfiction, written in the style of a scriptwriter. (There is director lingo and everything.) Together, the different scenes tell the reader about Goyer’s life, which, she admits, can at times play out like “a bad teen movie.” But they also encourage the reader to reflect and attach scripts to their own heretofore “unscripted” experiences - which is especially important for teens. The purpose of the book is to ultimately give girls the courage and knowledge they need to follow their own path in life, rather than getting swept up in teenage drama (as Goyer herself did). The final component of this book is a spiritual one – Goyer discusses her relationship with God and what her experiences have taught her, and she presents scripture as yet another script for life. While this means that the book has a specific audience in mind, for those who are willing to follow Goyer on this interesting and meaningful journey, they will find both entertainment and inspiration in regards to their own chaotic lives.
