Mature themes ahead!

It is so very hard to choose the perfect gift for a teen. While a book may not seem the obvious choice, I think it sends a clear message about the value you place on books and reading and, when chosen with care, it also lets the receiver know that you’ve carefully thought about the right book for them.

Teens are busy balancing social lives, academic pursuits, sports and other extracurricular activities and social media/gaming/the online world in general. I firmly believe that it’s all about balance, and we need to make books and time for reading part of the equation. Reading is a time of quiet and there is no multi-tasking to be done when reading…there is also the chance that your teen will fall deeply into a story and spend some time inside the world of a book.

*NB: Please check theme and age suitability for your individual reader.
