Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 27, 2009
It's not easy being a teenager in the 21st century. Kids communicate more through text and instant messaging than through personal interactions. Teens are plagued by depression, eating disorders, drugs and alcohol, as well as a media that glorifies fame, money, beauty and sex without providing any role models for becoming self-reliant individuals. Reviewer Starla Allen wrote about Brian's book, "Cynthia is someone who really does care about teens no matter what. She would pick them up, dust them off, give them a kiss and say don't worry about it you can do this. This book is going to be hidden inside a history book in classrooms! That's ok, kids need to learn more about themselves before they can even tackle history. " As Brian puts it, "America is witnessing a growing epidemic of youth helplessness. Be the Star You Are! For TEENS is a refreshing escape from sermons and rules. Instead the book offers straightforward stories and tools in easy-to-read, short chapters guaranteed to help adolescents survive in a rapidly changing, fast-paced world."
Written by teens, for teens, about the multitude of challenges faced throughout adolescence, Be the Star You Are! For TEENS invites readers to embrace their individuality. Simple, direct and powerful, each chapter of Be the Star You Are! For TEENS focuses on an aspect leading an abundant life, instructing readers with a true story, a life lesson, an electrifying exercise of implementations, and a quote for reflection.
