Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Where were you when the Challenger blew up? If the answer is "school," then you're in the prime target audience for Therese Johnson Borchard's Winging It: Meditations of a Young Adult, a delightful collection of daily meditations especially for Generation X Catholics. The cultural references are right on target; when one devotion begins with the line, "It was a Marsha Brady moment," young Catholics will know they can relate. And when Borchard addresses topics as far-ranging as divorce and the Psalms, sibling rivalry and the sacraments, they'll know they've found a soul mate. ( Mar.)
