We underestimate teenagers at our peril. Even the dismissive thing out on the street–look at what they’re wearing. Then we’ll hear stories about how a toddler fell on the tracks, and it’s often a teenager who comes to the rescue and walks away because he or she doesn’t want any credit. I recognize it because I’ve written books for teenagers–it’s basically that they feel things more than adults do. They want things more than you think. They want things with greater depth than you think they do. Teenagers have got a lot of soul that adults have forgotten they have within themselves.
