LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse will make a national debut in bookstores next year.

The Nebraska Republican known for his opposition to Donald Trump has signed a deal with St. Martin’s Press for a book about the difficulty young people have in transitioning to adulthood. The publisher said Tuesday the book will be released in May 2017.

The book draws from Sasse’s experience as Midland University’s president in Fremont. It offers a critical view of what he views as his students’ passivity and inability to solve problems without adult help. Sasse acknowledges the role of video games, phones and “helicopter parenting,” but argues cultural problems are the root cause.

The book is entitled, “The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming of Age Crisis - and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance.”
