Written by authors who are themselves still teenagers, Cast Nine Shadows truly captures the thoughts and feelings of today's young adults as they cope with the pressures of often domineering parents and teachers. In telling its engrossing story, the book highlights the importance of teens working together to accomplish their goals, but also warns parents against too limiting the exercise of their children's creativity and freedom. In short, this is a book that will interest and entertain both teenagers and their parents. James Gallagher (Ph.D) Assoc. Professor Assumption University Thailand
