Hello Future! A Guide to Fulfilling Your Dreams is packed with stories, quotes, advice, and encouraging words of wisdom for an upcoming or recent graduate. The book is divided into four sections: Fulfilling Your Dreams, Living Life to the Fullest, Pursuing Your God, and Don't Die Until You're Dead.

This book will encourage your high schooler to look toward the future with hope and excitement. Quotes and motivational stories are peppered throughout the book, and there is also space for the students to write thoughts of their own. It would make a perfect gift for the soon-to-be graduate, one they can read over and over for an encouraging word.

I enjoyed reading this book. It provided a wonderful variety of inspirational and encouraging material. And since I have a high schooler myself, it was very applicable to the desires I have for my own child. The book does not have an over-arching storyline but rather has a different story or idea on each page.

In conclusion, I would recommend purchasing this book. For our family, it was very pertinent. And as far as the flow of the reading, I like having a variety of ideas. If this type of writing is distracting to you, this may not be a good choice, although I believe the content of this book would still be an encouragement to you. This book will inspire your graduate to ponder what is important and will encourage him/her to strive for God's best.
