The Richardella-dulcisica, better known as the taste berry, is a unique fruit. After you eat one all the food you eat afterward — even distasteful food — will taste sweet and delicious. Similarly, there are people who, through their love and compassion, make the lives of others better. Like the taste berry, these people can turn sour days into delightful, even joyful, ones. With all the confusion, turmoil and heartache that teens experience, they need "taste berries" more than any other group. The authors, a mother/daughter team sensitive to these needs, have collected a wide array of inspirational material, which they interweave with teens' comments and critiques. Real teens reviewed this book and the authors completed it with the collaborative feedback of those teens. This innovative approach enables Taste Berries for Teens to show teens — by means of the responses and reactions of their peers, rather than the rhetoric of adults — what it means to be a "taste berry" and to appreciate the "taste berries" in their lives. Taste Berries for Teens — a unique combination of timeless and heartwarming narratives, teen responses and reactions, and the authors' own loving and wise commentary and advice — is sure to become your constant guide and trusted companion.
