This book tells the story of how Suzanne, a young teacher at a Waldorf school, copes with the changes her class is going through at the transition from childhood to adolescence. The problems she and the parents of her students must face are familiar to all parents of teens: drug use, smoking, apathy, rebelliousness, moodiness, to name only a few. We accompany Suzanne in her sincere struggle to help her students as she talks to other faculty members and to help parents and then adapts her teaching to the students' changed needs. Suzanne learns much from an older mentor, whose advice and guidance are based on Rudolf Steiner's spiritual science, and so do we. The anthroposophical perspective gives adolescence a new, more meaningful face. Understanding it as part of our destiny and our development toward individuality will help us guide our young people as they take the first uncertain steps on the road to independence. Hermann Koepke, a Swiss Waldorf teacher of many years experience, is well known in Europe. He is also the author of Encountering the Self: Transformation and Destiny in the Ninth Year.

Hermann Koepke guides us to an understanding of the often tumultuous changes children undergo as they approach adolescence. He does so in a very creative way: through the eyes and experiences of a young teacher, Suzanne, as she endeavors to cope with the difficulties she and her students' parents face: drug use, smoking, apathy, rebelliousness, moodiness, and more. As her class changes, she adapts her teaching. She learns a great deal about these children, and in the process, teaches us a great deal about our own preadolescents. The period surrounding age 12 can be challenging and stressful to parents and children alike - Hermann Koepke offers just the sort of living understanding that can lead us out of the seemingly endless wilderness.
