Book Review : Start Here

Start Here is a practical guide for teens who desire to step out of the comfort and complacency of culture's low expectations for their lives. Written by teen brothers Alex and Brett Harris, it is a companion to their first book Do Hard Things. While Do Hard Things encourages teens that they can make a huge difference in their schools, in their communities and in the world; Start Here shows them how.

Filled with advice, stories, and perspective from teens all over the world who are reaching outside of their comfort zones to go against normal expectations and show God's love through their faith and their actions in huge ways.

Start Here is a practical approach to the seemingly impossible ideas and visions that come out of Do Hard Things. The book doesn't answer all the tough questions for you, but instead guides you through how to figure out which questions to ask yourself and how to come to the best right answer for your specific circumstance. Start Here provides tools for managing big projects and ideas in a day to day manner, how to stay motivated and how to embrace even the small "hard things" in life.

Start Here holds an entirely different message for teens than the culture that surrounds them. What I appreciated about this book was that there is recognition of that. This book is full of encouragement and support for the tough times that teens will face in going against what is normal and expected. Teens and adults alike will be inspired by all the examples in this book of great things that teens are doing all over the world.
