Overview

This book is for anyone who works with youth—pastors, teachers, volunteers, and parents. Dean Borgman paints a vivid picture of life for those teens who are confronted by insecurity, violence, and substance abuse. By telling their stories, Borgman helps youth workers and parents understand the world of these teens, because it is in sharing our stories with each other that we build relationships that can become the foundation for healing. Borgman cautions this is no easy task and offers no simple solutions, but he shows there is hope.
