Personally I would hate to be a teenager again - sure I had fun but I also found it a frustrating time, my opinion that life is much better after high school is over hasn't changed.
I'm lucky because I go to church in a small branch and we home educate so the groups of children she mixes with contain plenty of fantastic teenaged roll models. Actually one of my daughters favourite friends at the group is a wonderful teen who has autism - she is so amazingly kind to my daughter and will play and imagine with her. But she also has that at church the YM/YW will take care of the children after sacrament its lovely to watch.
When I was a kid I used to love Hardy Boys books. I thought that was how being a teenager would be like and it was a pretty good dream to look forward to. I never solved crime, but the teen years were good to me.
They were my favourite books growing up - I had such a crush on Frank until one day I realised I was 25 and he was still 18 - is your Tux from the Penguin?
