Ashley Conner graduated middle school in a class of 18 students. Growing up in a small, inner-city school might not have been the perfect preparation as she entered the doors of her new high school, along with 2,206 other students.
Not only did she survive the high school years, she flourished. And when her younger brother, Zachary, entered his freshman year, Ashley – then a rising senior – decided to give her brother a secret gift. She create a private blog, just for him, titled, “Your Sister’s Guide to Surviving High School.”
During Zachary’s senior year, he and Ashley shared the blog with their parents, Mom and Dad were amazed as they looked through posts with titles like “Who pays for the date” and “How to get along with THAT teacher.” There were hundreds of posts from big sister to little brother.
“A Christian Teenager’s Guide to Surviving High School” is born from that original blog. Much of what she shared with her brother is found in this book.
Today, Ashley is a junior at a major university, while Zachary is finishing up his senior year of high school. From the looks of things, her advice has served her brother well.
