Hurt - Chap Clark
This book came out when I was in seminary and I never picked it up until fairly recently. Although this book is not what I would call "A page turner" it is full of practical and real advice on how to reach out to this broken and abandoned group of students that are walking through their adolescence every day.
We are a society that, I believe, has abandoned teenagers. This is why teenage stress is at an all time high, it why they put in more hours for school and homework than most adults do for their jobs.
If you work with students in any form, or desire to work with students, or work with people who work with students, you need to read this book.
I seriously can not recommend it enough.
