Teenager Danae Jacobson, an exciting new voice in young adult publishing, offers insights and asks questions gleaned from a perceptive and refreshingly simple view of the world around her. In a debut book, Things I’ve Learned Lately, her short essays on the life lessons she’s experienced discuss everything from love and relationships to the meaning of seasons and of death. Chapters include “Midnight Laughing Cleanses You,” “There Is a Time for Everything,” and “The Stars Shine Brighter When There Is No Moon.” Danae explores simple truths such as, “Forgiving someone is proof of your love,” and, “Coincidences are really ‘God-things,'” offering an honest, hopeful approach to young people who, like herself, are striving to match the challenges of life with a firm faith.
