    A Must-Have

    I bought this book for a few of my youth group students before they went off to college. We read it together and used it as a study guide. They enjoyed having it with them while at school - it's very hard to lose your focus on God while at college - this helped them sort through their college experiences - separation, temptation, dating, studying.
