This book explores a few simple but far-reaching questions:• Is it possible that even though many teens today have more freedom than any other generation in history, we’re actually missing out on some of the best years of our lives?• Is it possible that everything our culture tells us about the purpose and potential of the teen years is a lie, and that we are its victims?We believe our generation of young people is ready to rethink what teens are capable of, and what the teen years are all about.And we’ve noticed that once some wrong ideas are debunked and cleared away, our generation is quick to choose a better way, even if it’s also more difficult.
