Teenage is the time where everything is in a state of transition, in the process of building. Teenage is a distinct phase when you're no longer a child, but nobody will treat you as an adult. It is a phase during which you are trying to come to terms with everything and everyone, yourself, others, the world.

Some stories are timely and others are timeless, yet all are filled with heart--and, of course, love. Discover the invincible power of love in the pages of this book---ove of family, love of tradition, love of God. For Jews and non-Jews alike, this collection is sure to capture hearts.
