Dealing with Your Weaknesses Can Help You Find Your Strengths

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- On the outside, Megan seems liek a typical LDS girl. She participates in all the Church programs and always seems to have the right answers. But when she falls in love with Kurt, a young boy who is not a member of the Church and is a couple of years older than she, the standards she can recite by heart just don't feel all that important.

In "Megan" (Bookcraft, $16.95), popular LDS youth writer Jack Weyland tells the story of a young girl willing to take risks for the boy she loves. At first the risks seem small -- staying out too late, dressing more provocativesly to please her boyfriend, even the friction developing between Megan and her mother. But those risks lead to an unexpected pregnancy, abandonment by the baby's father, and the challenge of facing a difficult situation on her own. Is repentance possible? Should she keep the baby? or should she give it up to be adopted by a childless couple whose greatest wish is to have a family?

In his usual insightful way, Jack Weyland explores the problem that is all too common in today's world. The author of more than 20 novels and short stories specificially designed for LDS teens, Weyland is best known for titles such as "Ashley and Jen," "Michelle and Debra," "Night on Wolf Mountain," "The Krystle Promise," and "Charly." He and his wife Sheryl are parents of five and live in Rexburg, Idaho.
