What drew me to this book was the pink and purple font. I wished they put Jesus' words in pink or red, but this book is a great NIV Bible from preteen through teen. I love the reference sections in the back including a weights and measurements section, which can be very useful for understanding the way measurement was standard in the Bible. How to begin a relationship with Jesus section is a nice keepsake for new believers. The through the Bible in a year section, is a great reference for keeping track of the great goal of reading through the Bible. The Promises from the Bible and Perspectives from the Bible section helps teens with tough issues from a biblical a perspective. The notes section gives a few pages to write notes or start a reference section. The magnetic enclosure is a nice feature for a new Bible but I wonder how it will close if any journaling or papers were added over time. There is no name section in the beginning but lots of blank space to make your own name and dedication section. Overall I like this Bible and my preteen daughters love it. I would recommend this Bible to anyone has a teen or preteen daughter.
