Blog Tour: Dear Teen Me
I'm really exited to be a part of the Dear Teen Me blog Tour. I'm going to share a short review and then share a letter I wrote to my teen self.
October 30, 2012
Thoughts: I love the idea of this book. I found myself nodding along with many of these letters, recognizing my own teen experiences in them. All of the letters are unique, because they are all deeply personal. They are broken up with a few letters written as comics, two authors who were and are best friends and wrote their letters to each other, and fun Q&A pages where the contributors answer questions about their teen experience. I was familiar with some of the authors going in, which made reading their letters interesting, and there are many, many authors whose books I want to read now that I've read their letters.
Hands down favorite line, that I think anyone, regardless of age can relate to: "It's so easy to be dissatisfied with your life, to wish for and plan for better things, but take a moment to look at the things you already have. They're pretty awesome." -Tera Lynn Childs
