Just As I Am is a book about a girl named Mayla. Early on in the book Mayla becomes a Christian. This book is about her new life as a Christian. Mayla has purple hair, piercings and wears the craziest of clothings. All of who she is changes once she devotes herself to God.

In this book I learned that you can be what ever you want to be. I also learned that nothing is to far from reach. I liked that this book had very strong messages. I didn't like how the moral of the story was to be yourself but the character changes whgo she is. I aslo didn't like how the author portrayed a lot of the things in this book.

I was happy when I started reading this book. The whole message was to just be yourself. I got pretty angry towards the end of the book. When Mayla started to change how she looked. I thought that it was kind of dump to set that as a message and have the character change.
