  • I'm living through situations that Lori Vandeventer discusses in her letters. As I was reading, I had to stop multiple times, thinking Wow! How does she put the experience in such precise words of how things really are on campus? The letters are very reliable, and they have the potential to be life-changing for many young adults, myself included.

    As someone who has worked with students all over the country, I see how the transition to young adulthood and college is daunting and difficult. Lori Vandeventer not only puts into words the challenges all college students face, but she also gives practical and impactful advice. This book of letters is full of wisdom I wish I could share with every high school senior over a nice meal. Practical, authentic. Helpful.

    Drawing from her own personal life stories as well as experience teaching and interacting with hundreds of youth, Lori Vandeventer has written a much-needed reference book for young people to utilize during one of the most challenging periods of their life. As a social worker who has had experience working with young people in both the school and private practice setting, I can testify one of the greatest questions they have is "who am I," apart from who everyone else has told me to be. Vandeventer's letters act as a guide, giving gentle yet direct advice and wisdom pointing young people in the direction of finding their true Auspicious You. I envision this book being valuable with individuals, in group settings, and in classroom instruction with students.
