Editorial Reviews


Each chapter is simply designed, stating the issue and giving clear, well-defined examples for teens to follow. The book addresses topics like forgiveness, chasing away fears, procrastination, and self-discovery and confidence. Introspective activities are offered for the reader in each chapter. For example, in the chapter "Making Friends with Your Feelings," such exercises as journaling and drawing are provided. In "Spring Back," Mangan presents self-analytical exercises to help teens succeed following a failure. The book can be read from start to finish, but because it is designed as a guidebook, the reader can also easily skip from chapter to chapter. All topics are discussed in a positive way, with the goal of taking action over feeling defeated or frustrated. Due to its easy-to-use format, it is a great, quick go-to reference book. This book is a necessity for teens who are facing bouts of insecurity. Its positive message and mind-healthy exercises will serve as an inspiration when things are tough. --Voya

Avoiding preachiness and gimmickry, Mangan aims to give teens tools to take happiness into their own hands. Suggestions for finding solace include avoiding comparing oneself to others, tackling procrastination, focusing on the positive, and accepting both the power and limits of one's control. Each section offers various steps, activities, and goals (for example, Mangan advises finding a good fictional role model as a way to learn about becoming more assertive in real life). The tips are straightforward, and readers should feel empowered to know that solutions may be within their grasp. --Publisher's Weekly

This book gives good advice and encouragement to teenagers who don't always want to talk about their concerns. I would recommend it.
