97 Things To Do Before You Finish High School
There are tons books devoted to lists of things “you should do…” but none of them ever apply to teenagers. 97 Things To Do Before You Finish High School is the seemingly first of its kind to list activities that all high schoolers should accomplish by graduation. All 97 activities are categorized in nine groupings, some of them being “Because you’re young only once” and “Because you should.” Things to do include throwing a house party and building a bonfire. The best part about 97 Things To Do Before You Finish High School is that it tells you how to do the activities presented. 97 Things is fun book to own, no matter which age you are.
