Roadmap to Financial Literacy: An Introduction to Personal Finance For Teenagers provides a holistic understanding of the world of finance teens will encounter after high school. It covers topics such as building credit, student loans, mortgages, saving, investing, and budgeting, and is filled with graphics and examples to supplement the content. Written by a teen, for teens, it explains concepts in a simple and easy-to-understand yet in-depth manner and takes readers on a journey to explore the field of finance.
“Every high school student should read this book; I wish I had the opportunity to read it when I was in high school. I suggest all parents buy it for their kids before starting high school, as it talks about the basics of finance all youth should know about!”
