“We need to talk.”
It’s hard to imagine a more panic-inducing statement. Why? These four little words generally herald the arrival of a truly awkward conversation.

In Socially Awkward, Ruth Buchanan encourages readers to take heart, push through discomfort, tackle tough topics, speak up when it matters, and engage big ideas together. In doing so, they can experience personal development, build stronger relationships, help foster healthy faith communities, and serve the culture.
