I wish I had access to this kind of book when I was a kid. Adra Young’s new collection, The Everyday Living of Children and Teens Monologues is just right for any teenager who is interested in acting. The book consists of actual events acted out from the perspective of actual teenagers, under the aegis of Young - as Acting Coach, Actress, and Educator. The book will help teenagers tap into their emotions to deal with real life scenarios. Through the art of acting, children can learn guidance and direction on how cope with serious life issues of abuse, peer pressure, death, violence, family dilemmas, and moving away from old neighborhoods into new ones. This book would also serve well those educators interested in learning new and innovative ways to reach out to the youth. The book is comprehensive, and provides a broad display of Ms. Young’s insight and experience as a skilled educator. I have recommended this book to many of my friends who are teachers and educators. This book is a must-read!

What did you like about the book?
It’s smart, practical, and important.

What did you dislike about the book?
Not really a matter of ‘dislike’, but moreso a matter of length. Perhaps, with a book of this magnitude, it could have been more content. But, the book is still worthwhile.

What could the author do to improve the book?
Nothing. This is a fine read.
