After burning out from the debate team, these twin teenaged authors got turned on by an intense summer reading program suggested by their father. It wasn't long before they started a "rebelution," rebelling against the idea that adolescence has to be characterized by ennui and consumerism. Their blog, therebelution.com, garnered 12 million hits and sparked conferences around the country, with the motivating "big idea" of suggesting ways that teenagers can "do hard things." Their well-organized audio is filled with personal anecdotes, powerful images, examples from history, and suggestions for changes that can come from collaboration and moving out of one's comfort zone. The discussion may lose listeners because of its strong Christian orientation. Though not experienced readers, the twins' narration shows the passion that has driven their work and changed many teens. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
