A powerful and challenging book.


Do you think teenagers have potential to do great things? This is the book for you. Making a difference can be hard, but Christian teens are called to do hard things. Alex and Brett Harris use this book to challenge young people to throw away the cultural norm of low expectations and do hard things for God.


Morality is one of the major themes of the book.

Spiritual Content

The entire book focuses on challenging Christian youth to serve God.



Drug and Alcohol Content

Brief example story featuring a young man on drugs who is unwilling to grow up.

Sexual Content

Another brief example story of a girl who runs away with her boyfriend before getting her life straightened out.

Crude or Profane Language or Content



This is one of the best books I've read. If you're a teen, you should read it. If you're not a teen, you should read it. The challenges it presents are worthwhile in this age of low expectations - and low achievements.

Fun Score: 5
