Help!  I need a good devotional book  for my 12 yr old niece. I have no idea what she would like.

Debbie, my daughter was reading Everybody Tells Me to Be Myself but I Don't Know Who I Am: Building Your Self-Esteem (Faithgirlz!) by Nancy N. Rue, and she said she liked it.  

Here's a link to a christian bookstore with devotionals for teens.  I don't know if they'd be the right age for her, but you could browse around there.

I had the Youth Walk Devotional Bible when I was 13.  I loved it = and it took me right on up to college.  Its great because its a bible and a devotional all in one.  It had daily devotionals and you can also look them up by topic too.  The text has good notes, and there are tons of "extras" that are really meaningful.  Check it out!  I have saved mine for my kids to use.
