Teen Sunshine Refelctions was created so that teens can turn to this book as a source of comfort when they are feeling discouraged or experienceing a difficult time in their lives. I talked with teens about what kind of writing speaks to them most deeply. These conversations made it clear that I should produce a book that offers comfort, encouragement and inspiration not only from great sages, such as Mother Teresa and The Dalai Lama, but also from teens reflecting on the gifts and joy of life. One third of the selections in Teen Sunshine Reflections are written by teens for teens. The "Words for the Heart and Soul" in this book will strengthen the faith of teens and help pull them through difficult times. In compilng this book, I put out a call for submissions and was stunned and excited by the talent of teen writers who responded. Word spread quickly and soon I was receiving poetry from teenages around the world. I enlisted the advice of a panel of 20 teens, from various religious and ethnic backgrounds, who helped select the final content of the book. Teen Sunshine Reflections has been a lesson in perspective for me. The teen authors and panel members in this book taught me more than I ever thought possible when first envisioning this project. These amazing teens let me in on what it's like for them growing up in today's world with an uncertain future, intense peer pressure, divorce, drugs, issues of self esteem, and now the threat of more terrorism, all while struggling with the transition from youth to young adult. To my surprise and delight, they showed me that the power of words can make a difference in their lives, especially when those words speak from the heart.From the Inside Flap:
