Do Hard Things by Alex & Brett Harris
I love theme of this book, A teenage rebellion against low expectations! I also have to say that it is conversationally written in the language of teens. Because it doesn't treat teens like children or in academia, I think it is the perfect book to challenge any young person to live up to their dreams and purpose. I'm excited to be able to give away a copy of this one!
I will draw a name this Sunday, April 20th, in the late evening. So if you'd like your own copy---post a comment and make sure I know how to reach you:-) No address necessary, but to avoid the spammers, separate out your email for me unless you have a blogger I can click on and leave you a message:-D

With over 10 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing movement of Christian young people who are rebelling against the low expectations of their culture by choosing to “do hard things” for the glory of God.
Written when they were 18 years old, Do Hard Things is the Harris twins’ revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential. Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life and map a clear trajectory for long-term fulfillment and eternal impact.
Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of revolution already in progress challenges the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.
