"The importance of teaching kindness, confidence, and social responsibility to teens is huge; this book does that beautifully through relatable, inspiring, and humorous anecdotes. When kids realize that they are leaders, they are so much more likely to use that social influence for good," says Maribeth Sublette, former high school teacher.
Filled with relatable testimonies about overcoming setbacks and failures, author John Shufeldt’s purpose for Ingredients of Young Outliers was to serve as a surrogate mentor for teens and young adults. While addressing peer pressure and bullying, among other young adult issues, the book is designed to build the confidence of young readers and encourage qualities like kindness, integrity, and teamwork as positive leadership traits.
Mary Vallelonga, owner and teacher at Little Friends Montessori Schoolhouse says, “Ingredients of Young Outliers, is filled with cornerstone virtues of courage, hope, humility, respect, integrity, trust and love. It shares the importance of how ‘mentors’ can make a life changing difference in someone’s life. I am certain that everyone who reads these stories will hold their heads up a little higher, their smile will be a little brighter, their tears will be tears of joy and they will believe that they too have what it takes to be an ‘Outlier’.”
