Story Behind the Book
A team of youth pastors approached Multnomah with the need for a visual pivotal-issues series for teens—something that would enter into their world and confront the stuff they actually think, talk, and wonder about every day. These products called for a “back of the school bus” feel. Kids don’t get spoon-fed answers; they simply get enough cards on the table to create their own conversations. Now youth pastors everywhere can’t seem to hand out enough of them! Marcus Brotherton worked in youth ministry for nearly a decade before switching to writing fulltime. He holds a master’s degree in practical theology from Talbot Seminary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Split: A Graphic Reality Check for Teens Dealing With Divorce (FlipSwitch)?
Good for older teens May 2, 2010
I liked this short booklet so much I ordered some for my church to use. It is short and very well illustrated, and would be good to give to a teen whose parents are getting divorced. It acknowledges feeling, and then leads the person to hope and to a reassurance that God is still in control and with them. Would be best for high school or older teen.
