Growing pains are an essential part of teenage life, for
better and for worse. Some “mistakes” turn into positive, life-changing
experiences, and some apparent triumphs seem, in retrospect, like low points.
Some first kisses leave you feeling on top of the world, and others can make you
want to hide under a rock. In Dear Teen
Me, your favorite YA authors, including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, Tom
Angleberger, and Carrie Jones, revisit critical moments from their young lives
and offer advice and guidance to their teenage selves.
Listen and find out who had a really bad first kiss? Who
found her true love at eighteen? Who wishes she’d had more fun in high school
instead of studying so hard? And who skipped prom to go to a Grateful Dead
concert, only to wind up stranded and alone?
The letters cover a wide range of topics, including physical
abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurities to fill
an auditorium. Some authors focus on a hilarious mistake or one especially big
day, others offer words of hope for desperate times. So whether you’re a
theater kid, a band geek, a bad boy, a good girl, a loner, a stoner, a nerd, or
a jock, you’ll find friends, and a lot of familiar faces, in Dear Teen Me. Download and start listening now!
