I found Letters to Garrett to be a truly wonderful book and recommend it highly. When I started, I thought I wouldn't be able to identify with Garrett that much. I'm older than he is and know pretty much where I'm going in life. I was surprised then about how often I saw myself in Garrett. It pointed out that we face transitions much more often in our lives than we might think. It's not just the adolescence into adulthood, becoming a parent, changing jobs, mid-life crisis etc. Recognizing transitions when we're faced with them (rather than in retrospect) helps us navigate times of change and make better decisions.
