Dan Blanchard’s newest book, The Storm is a story of family ties and the search for wisdom, with a healthy dose of inspiration thrown in for good measure. As a parent, teacher and now a high school administrator, I know and value the importance of motivation when it comes to working with teenagers. Both young and old will find something they can relate to in Dan Blanchard’s books exploring the turbulent and challenging world of today’s youth. A must read for parents and teachers alike.
