Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris and Aussie giveaway

With over 10 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing movement of Christian young people who are rebelling against the low expectations of their culture by choosing to “do hard things” for the glory of God.

Written when they were 18 years old, Do Hard Things is the Harris twins’ revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential. Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life and map a clear trajectory for long-term fulfillment and eternal impact.

Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of revolution already in progress challenges the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Hmmm... The hardest thing I face as a teen would be trying to remain 'just friends' with a guy while both knowing that we like each other. Hard to know when you've crossed the line.
I'd love to read this. My sister's got a copy, but I'd like to get one of my own to read.
Please enter me.

I have a teenager, a 15 year old son. One of the hardest things I faced as a teenager was adapting to my new home-country of Australia while learning to speak english.
