Love is incessantly a mystery to teenagers – every so often painful, other times glorious, at all times challenging. This book will help them take into account and sort out their myriad feelings and experiences. Quite than merely offering one adult’s opinions or reflections on love, Kirberger deftly combines material from teens dealing with firsthand adolescent love with that from adults sensitive to the special needs of teens. She includes original letters she has received from teens, in conjunction with her responses to their questions, concerns and confusion. This blend provides a wide-ranging perspective on love and relationships. It’s going to enable teens to gain wisdom and make a choice more wisely when making decisions in love and relationships.
This book is designed to guide teens through the maze of love and relationships in a gentle, understanding and compassionate way. It is not a dos-and-don’ts manual, but Quite a how-it-is-in-love guidebook. Teens will come to treasure it as a wise and loving counselor and companion. On the roller-coaster ride of teen love, this is one book no teen can have the funds for to be without.
