How to Stay Christian in High School
My 13 year old son read it as part of his school reading and really liked it. He suggested we get it for all the 8th grade grads at church and has recommended it to all his friends.

Bought this book as a graduation gift for students entering High School. Seems to have some good insights written in a way that will relate well to where they are at.

"How To Stay Christian In High School" by Steve Gerali is a simple to read, straight forward, with many nuggets of biblical wisdom. It is written with great clarity, and with a modern twist to familiar biblical stories that opens up fresh, new understanding that can certainly connect with young people in our generation. With a mere 127 pages and a total of six chapters, it can be read even in one or two sittings. Very readable. Challenging. And although this book is meant for high school Christians, I find that this book is equally challenging to Christians from all walks of life. Chapter 1 starts off with knowing our identity in Christ. Before we can fully understand who we are, we need to know whose we are - to whom we belong to. Chapter 2 to 6 focus on one or two bible characters each chapter. I also like the Replacement Principle that the author describes. It works like this: If you want something out of your life, don't work hard to remove it. Instead, pour in something else that pushes it out. Replace something bad with something godly. To stay Christian in high school, replace rotten stuff in your life with good stuff.

My son enjoyed it and said it was better than he thought it would be. Coming from a thirteen-year-old boy, I'd say that's a pretty good recommendation!
