What I Wish I'd Known in High School: Crash Course by John Bytheway
Being a Latter-day Saint teenager can get pretty tough at times, and frustrating too. Popular youth speaker John Bytheway used to wish that someone or some book could have answered more of his questions when he was young; mostly the "Why?" kinds of questions. In a positive, thought-provoking way, John Bytheway outlines each chapter as if it were a class in high school. Classes cover such subjects as self-esteem, chastity, popularity, the Book of Mormon, and why there are so many churches. There's a break from class for an assembly where the author discusses being Christlike every day. He explains that more important things are going on than what to wear and where to go on the next date. While explaining and answering common questions and frustrations of LDS young people, the author also subtly challenges and stretches their abilities, motivating them to seek the way and will of the Lord.
