A Catholic Teen's Guide to Tough Stuff: Straight Talk, Real Issues
by Jim Auer
Being a teenager can be a lot of fun, but there is the tough stuff that shapes and defines who you are and what you can grow to be. This book addresses a broad range of issues that confront youth today. Some (dating, for example) are perennial; others (such as the potential hazards of the Internet) are more recent. The issues include relationship with self, relationships with peers, and relationships with parents and other adults. Each topic is treated with straightforward but gentle wisdom and frequent splashes of humor, with a common thread of Catholic faith as the source of strength and guidance.
