The items topping your teen’s wish list this holiday are probably Wii games and an iPod, but how about giving the best gift of all: Adventure through imagination!  Here are a couple novels that are sure to reach Twilight and Harry Potter popularity with your teen this holiday as well as an advice guide for teen girls:

The Hole in the Sky, by Barbara Mahler ($20.95):  An unusual visitor leads 13-year-old Kaela and her cousin on a fantastic journey to a cursed land where they find beauty, adventure, strange and magical friends, and deadly enemies.  The key that unlocks the curse lies hidden in the mystical butterfly breath, but to uncover it, Kaela has to overcome her grief from her mother’s death and face her deepest fears before time runs out. (My 15-year-old niece loved this book!)

Secrets Girls Keep by teen expert Carrie Silver-Stock, shows teens that when they help share their stories, they begin to break down the walls and ensure better and safer choices for their futures. Many girls today struggle with feelings of low confidence, loneliness, rejection, and depression and then look to unsafe sex, drugs and alcohol for comfort and answers.
