I was supposed to post this book review two days ago.  Major whoops!  I try to stay on top of these things but I didn’t get to finish the book.  Partly because McCall and I started the Percy Jackson series and he is way ahead of me…and partly because it is a great book but would be super for high school or college aged audience.

It is written by twin brothers Alex & Brett Harris.  Start Here is actually their 2nd book.  their first book was, Do Hard Things.  I reviewed a book a while back that their brother Josh wrote.  In this book they help their readers tackle HOW to do the hard things and also to look for ways to be used by the Lord right where they are.  They give practical tips and very hands on ways to get started, stay focused on God and handle the consequences of doing hard things.  The book is short, easy to read and full of real life stories.  Check out the more complete summary and bio info below.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.


At the age of eighteen, Alex and Brett Harris wrote Do Hard Things—and launched a movement that would change a generation. Young people around the world were ready to be inspired, ready to move beyond complacency, ready to rebel against society’s low expectations.

Now the highly anticipated companion book, Start Here, answers the questions Alex and Brett have received from thousands of teens on their worldwide conference tour and popular online community: How do I get started? What hard things does God want me to do? How do I keep from getting discouraged or burned out? What is the best way to inspire others?

Filled with stories and insights from Alex, Brett, and other real-life rebelutionaries, Start Here is a powerful and practical guide for young people who are ready to take the next step and blast past apathy. Let the rebelution continue.
