Rarely does one find a book that serves multiple functions being both entertaining, as well as a modern, learning tool for youth. However, with The Everyday Living of Children and Teen Monologues Volume II, author, Adra Young has accomplished what us avid readers rarely see. Being an educator of over a decade in Detroit, Ms. Young has tapped into the purest essence of the adolescent spirit. With each monologue parents gain insight into some of the basic every day issues their child may be dealing with. At the same time each monologue vividly expresses the true sentiment felt behind both the struggles and successes of young people.
It was also encouraging and inspiring to see an author think outside the box of traditional children’s and teen literature to offer a reference guide as well. While this novel is entertaining and insightful, it also offers a wealth of vital tools and materials for use by youth planning to actively and seriously pursue a career in acting. Ms. Young has devised and implemented into her book a comprehensible director’s strategy that is easy to learn, and re-vamp into the young, aspiring thespians’ personal acting style. I give many kudos to Ms. Young for not only a thrilling contribution to the young adults’ literary world, but for also offering a reference tool that will easily serve actors, students and parents young and old for years to come. I strongly recommend that all young people read and enjoy The Everyday Living of Children and Teens Monologues – Volumes I and II.
