Dear Teen Me includes advice from over 70 YA authors (including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, and Nancy Holder, to name a few) to their teenage selves. The letters cover a wide range of topics, including physical abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurities to fill an auditorium. So pick a page, and find out which of your favorite authors had a really bad first kiss? Who found true love at 18? Who wishes he’d had more fun in high school instead of studying so hard? Some authors write diary entries, some write letters, and a few graphic novelists turn their stories into visual art. And whether you hang out with the theater kids, the band geeks, the bad boys, the loners, the class presidents, the delinquents, the jocks, or the nerds, you’ll find friends--and a lot of familiar faces--in the course of Dear Teen Me.
This book is so cool! I wish I could have had this book back when I was starting my teen years. The advice you coud give yourself at a younger age is invaluable. I wish I could have written my younger self a letter and used it through my teen years to make it through the tougher times.

I don't think this book is focused just at teenagers. I think those of who are past their teen years would enjoy this just as much for the nostalgia of what their teen years were like and how they would live them differently. I think this book would make a great gift for any age!

I received this book free for review from the Dear Teen Me blog tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
