A very wonderful story that everyone must read.

The story tells about the current issue of the teenagers nowadays and this will surely help each and everyone for it gives a moral lesson that every person must know (especially the youngsters).

(I only read Footnote to Youth by Jose Garcia Villa and not the whole book since it's the only copy I have.)
