Whether you're exploring Buddhism for the first time or you're already on the path, feel free to ask questions of any kind here.
Your suggestions? I'm ordering "Wide Awake: A Buddhist Guide for Teens" for a start. I love studying the sutras, can you link me some? Much thanks!

My introduction was "Mindfulness in Plain English" by Henepola Gunaratana. Gets you practicing right away while subtly introducing Buddhist ideas.
I've also heard "Being Nobody Going Nowhere" by Ayya Khema is a good introduction. I read it a few years in, but it's still an excellent book that covers all the basics.
"The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching" by Thich Nhat Hanh is great. It's a bit dense. I'd just read that a chapter at a time.
