You love your family. But, sometimes they make life so hard! Sometimes, family members are just annoying. Maybe your parents try too hard to be cool, or your little brother is just such a pain. Sometimes, though, you and your family might face bigger problems. What if your parents are divorced, or your father isn't in the picture anymore? What if you need to help out your family by getting a job? How do you deal if a family member is away in the military? Through the big stuff and the small stuff, they're still your family.

Handling pressure at school or on the field. Going through a growth spurt-or not. Dealing with parents, friends, classmates, teachers, and coaches. Starting-and ending-relationships. Just trying to fit in. When did life suddenly get so intense? A Guy's Guide covers issues that preteen and teen guys deal with every day. True-to-life stories and problems pair with real advice in this series designed to tell it like it is and to help you take action. Because sometimes, everyone needs an assist.
