Do You Have What It Takes? A Comprehensive Guide to Success After Foster
Book, Edited by Kendra Hurley, 314 pp.
For over ten years, young adults of Represent magazine
have written about charging off to their own apartments
only to learn how lonely they are and losing first jobs
due to conflicts with bosses. These stories engage teens
and prepare them not only for the practical challenges
they will face on the road to independence, but also
the emotional ones. Worksheets and exercises will help
you plan for your future. Activity pages at the end of
each chapter will help your social workers, independent
living instructors, and other leaders use the stories
with you or in groups.
