It’s something so many teens could relate to. You’re chaloshing for that latest digital camera, or that adorable pair of summer shoes, or a Coach wristlet, or whatever else it is you fancy, and everyone else in your class is getting it…but your parents, of course, have to say no. “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” they tell you.
And now, besides for being minus that new hot item that you so badly wanted, you’re also in the embarrassing position of having to explain to all your friends, whose parents for sure already bought the item for them, that it was too expensive and your parents couldn’t afford to buy it.
Welcome to Ahuvi’s life—except for her, it seems that money—or the lack of it—has become an actual obsession in the family. As she struggles with feelings of anger and resentment toward her parents and the family’s whole financial situation, she unexpectedly stumbles upon a secret that sheds light on everything…
Chana Cohen “gets” teens. She understands the way they think, the way they feel, what makes them sad, upset, or embarrassed, and what makes them feel like a million dollars (or like a Coach wristlet). In Making Change, a collection of short, fictional stories, this talented author opens the door into many a teen’s heart, while providing her readers with an enjoyable story at the same time.
If you’re looking for a book your teen or tween will appreciate, Making Change is it.
