Review:

Prominent entrepreneur, educator, and author Stedman Graham writes, "More than anything, Teens Can Make It Happen is about showing young people how to discover the hope and self-confidence they need to lead productive, healthy lives. This book is designed to help them develop lifestyles and processes that will prepare them for a lifetime of intellectual, emotional and physical awareness and well-being. Every chapter shows that you are not your circumstances; you are your possibilities." Graham, author of the bestselling You Can Make It Happen: A Nine-Step Plan for Success , writes for teens in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner, no talking down, no vague promises. After chapter 1, "The Success Process," one chapter is devoted to each of his nine steps: check your ID, create your vision, develop your travel plan, master the rules of the road, step into the outer limits, pilot the seasons of change, build your dream team, win by a decision, and commit to your vision. Graham reveals some of his personal trials and tribulations in finding his identity (can you imagine how hard it would be to hang onto your own identity if you're also Oprah Winfrey's boyfriend?) and reaching for success even when people have told him he couldn't make it. In his motivational style, Graham makes it crystal-clear that he believes in the teens of today and the adults of tomorrow. Filled with relevant examples and practical, hands-on wisdom, this book should help teens move beyond their circumstances and become their possibilities. (Ages 12 and older) --Emilie Coulter
