This engaging adventure novel, written by Resilient Horizons President and Founder, is an exciting new option for students, teachers, parents, and mental health professionals looking for books that support social and emotional learning for today’s youth. This book includes extra features like the “Adventure Continues” section as a conversation starter tool for teachers, counselors, and parents.
Into the Vortex: A Tale of Resiliency imparts a resiliency mindset to students in grades 6-9 via an adventure novel about a 12-year-old’s struggle for survival in an underwater cavern. This is the age when thoughts of self-harm can enter the minds of our youth. The story conveys “resiliency in action” as the characters learn to work together, make critical decisions, and manage limited resources as they strive to save Kayden’s life. The importance of hope, perseverance, and resiliency are emphasized as qualities youth can use as a hedge of protection in difficult situations.
