Read It: Dear Teen Me

Dear Teen Me, edited by E. Kristin Anderson and Miranda Kenneally, was first a blog and is now a book! Full disclosure: I have an letter in this anthology. As do a bunch of amazing authors who give warm, wise, heartbreaking and hilarious advice to their teenage selves in letter format. Want a sample?  "High school stops mattering the second you graduate from it. Crazy, I know, but it's true!" -Robin Benway

 "Your friends save your life every day." -Stacey Jay

 "Stop hating yourself. The hatred doesn't belong to you." -Cheryl Rainfield

 "Pick up the phone and call him back. Right. Now." -Miranda Kenneally

Candid and open, these letters deal with everything from eating disorders to prom dates, from abuse to first kisses and all the in between. Bonus: Most authors also share high school-age photos of themselves (ha!), and the pages are glossy, heavy stock and full color! Read some of the blog-featured letters here and go get your copy!
