Growing Up Duggar...Book Cover Released

Only six months until Growing Up Duggar hits the shelves of your local bookstore!


In a rare look inside America’s favorite mega-sized family, the four eldest girls talk about their faith, their dreams for the future, and what it’s like growing up a Duggar.

Airing weekly throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, 19 Kids and Counting has made the huge Duggar family into a media phenomenon. The Duggar children are frequently asked, “Tell the truth; do you really agree with the lifestyle your parents have created for you?” Now, the four eldest Duggar girls—Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger let us know how they feel.


With a backdrop of the key relationships in their lives—relationship with self, parents, siblings, friends, boys, and God—the four Duggar girls open up about their own personal beliefs and convictions, boys, dating, manners, living in a large family, politics, and much more. You’ll learn why Jessa has a reputation as a troublemaker, how the family navigates the difficult years between twelve and sixteen, and what the girls look for in a man, all in a frank and fun book that will inspire teens and adults alike. Including lighthearted stories about the younger kids’ antics, Growing Up Duggar is a wise and entertaining trip into a family like no other.

I hate that they refer to themselves as "girls." They are all over 18, they are adults, they are young women!

I can't wait to hear how they really feel about the lifestyle their parents have made them live!

It's hard for me to believe we will read anything in their book that has not already be said or written in the past.

That's great! I look forward to reading the book! The Duggard girls are truly beautiful in every sense of the word! I'm actually about to watch an episode of The Duggards with my three year old daughter. They are such an inspiration and we are blessed by the testimony of their lives!

We're going to find out if they "REALLY agree"? Hmmm... kinda doubt we'll get any more than the "party line". I'll be surprised if they have even slight differences in their beliefs. "Jill believes that skirts should come 5 inches below the knee, but Jana is OK with only 4 inches." No... sadly I think it will tow the line. :(

Yay! I've been waiting for this book for a while, and I'm so excited that it'll be here soon! I am a teenage girl, and all of the Duggars, especially the older girls, are a huge inspiration for me, and inspired me to find God in my life.

My thoughts exactly.

I'm excited

This book will no doubt just be about what has been drilled into these girl's heads since birth. I don't believe JimBob and Michelle allow any of their kids to form their own opinions on anything.

Does anybody in this family work, as the rest of us do, for a living?

The Duggar girls have no business writing about men, dating, or politics as they have NO experience with any of these topics and are only capable of regurgitating their parents' views or the Gothard hogwash they've been brainwashed by. :)

I am so excited! I love reading the Duggar books!

Brianna said...

I can't wait for the book to come out. I want to read it so bad!!! I just love the Duggars, especially the older girls. So encouraging!!

That's how I feel I doubt there will be anything new like how they tell what they really think is probobly not going to be any different than their parents but I hope they do think about being who they want and not just who their parents want and come on wear pants!

Can't wait!!' Love them all! So inspirational!

serin said...

I will so be buying this! Will it be available in e-book format?????

Josh owns a few car lots, John-David owns a towing business, Jana and Jill are training to be midwifes. I'm not sure about the others, but I'd definitely say, yes, they do work for a living, just like the rest of us.

I hope I'll have the chance to read this book! As a teenage girl, I've grown up watching these girls on TV and they've truly been an inspiration to me. They've got me thinking about my own relationship with God and how I can outwardly show my beliefs.

I am waiting for the tell-all book to come out in 20 years .. . Until then, you can't convince me that any book by them is accurate about what it is REALLY like to grow up Duggar.

Are They going to do a book signing?
