Dakota, a motivated and dedicated yet somewhat lost 16-year-old teen, mysteriously runs into his 76-year-old Granddaddy. As they take shelter outside in a pavilion during a rainstorm, Granddaddy imparts to Dakota a series of remarkable life lessons through conversation, stories, and questions. Dakota is in-between football and wrestling seasons which is why he had the afternoon free to chat, and he didn’t have to go to work until the evening.
This is a book that needs to be read by all middle school and high school boys around the United States and world, as well as by teachers and administrators. From the bottom of my heart, this is a book I wish I would have read when in school. I encourage you to share this book with friends, family members, teachers, administrators, counselors, students, and anyone who is willing to read it. While the target demographic of this book is middle school and high school boys, the lessons in this book can genuinely benefit anyone.
I see this book most useful as a tool for teachers and coaches of young men. With a small group of young teenagers (maybe 12-14-year-olds), for instance, a coach could assign a few chapters of reading - just a bit at a time, since there is no "story" to maintain the interest of a young reader - and then spark a discussion of the topic. The book contains advice on such topics as Planning & Goal-Setting, Winning & Losing, Striving for Improvement, Perseverance, Instant Gratification versus Long-Term Satisfaction. By selecting a couple of chapters at a time, and using the Socratic Method, the coach, teacher or mentor could encourage the kids to discuss how each topic can work for them.
THE STORM is a book that can be an effective framework for adults to help provide boys with tools for mature decision-making in their current lives and in the future.
