Youth today need refuge, some sort of safe place. This book gives them a place to turn when they have problems to solve. With Biblical guidance and a bit of conventional wisdom, the reader will be challenged to consider the options they have in life; learning that it is not always easy to take the easy way out. After making the biggest mistake of his life, David doesn't know if he'll ever be in his parent's good graces again...Jamal wanders the streets alone as he tries to figure out how to survive as a homeless teen ...Laura needs to escape from her abusive boyfriend, but needs someone else's help to do it...Amanda may be able to help her brother find their long-lost mother... This book is a compilation of short stories and poems for multicultural youth of today. Teens will find stories that represent situations that they or their friends are going through. As they deal with their issues they may face concerns that this book addresses. They may wonder where they should turn, or who they should turn to. This book a great gift for any teen who ever goes through something in life. In addition, it's perfect for camps, schools, and special programs.
