You don’t love a mocha the same way that you love Jesus. As a teen today, you probably have plenty of interests and plenty to plug into. In the midst of the constant stimulus—activities, media, text messages, and social networking— activist and fellow teenager Zach Hunter asks: What consumes the bulk of your time? How do you zero in on what really matters? Zach wrote this book to share powerful inspiration from the lives of others and to promote his steadfast belief that his generation is capable of great things—actions that may require shedding conventional notions of what is cool and important—and of choices that can heat up, ignite, and stoke the flames of a deeper passion, the kind of passion that changes the world. Are you ready to lose your cool?
