Description


A candid, intimate look at teens in crisis: “Heartrending . . . startling . . . a resource for understanding and approaching the life-changing pitfalls of youth.” —Publishers Weekly

“I get abused and hurt so much, and no one seems to care . . . ”

These are real words written by a real girl. There are thousands more just like her. Her pain is real. Her story is true. But her voice has been hidden . . . until now.

The desperate words of a generation have too often been drowned out by the white noise of a culture too busy to care. For those who dare to listen, there are incredible stories to be unearthed, filled with both tragedy and triumph. This book was written in response to thousands of personal letters and messages, meant for both those in crisis and those who share that crisis with them every day.

As a sought-after public speaker, Reggie Dabbs has shared his own incredible story with millions of students—and many of them share their stories with him in return. These letters contain those stories, with only names and details changed to protect their anonymity. They are followed by Reggie’s actual response of hope to that individual. John Driver, MS—a former public secondary educator, as well as a longtime community youth advocate and mentor—provides additional insight and “Breathable Moments” for educators, parents, friends, and family.

Equipping readers to help those in crisis continue breathing another day, Just Keep Breathing provides both the inspiration and the information needed to respond confidently and appropriately—and see those we care about make it to another sunrise.
