With an element missing from many teen books today, "Life Strategies for Catholic Teens addresses the challenges young people face today from a Christian Catholic perspective. Before addressing these challenges, author Jim Auer invites teen readers to take a healthy, positive look at themselves, reminding them that they have been created by a loving Parent. The author's premise is that how people view themselves and life in general strongly influences how they will act in a specific situation. Auer then proceeds with straightforward yet lively discussions of contemporary issues, such as personal responsibility, stress, and competition. In typical Auer style, "Life Strategies for Catholic Teens blends concrete examples, lively anecdotes, scriptural references, and appropriate quotations from sources that range from ancient proverbs to Shakespeare and popular song lyrics.
