Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–This well-organized, upbeat book discusses what stress is and how it affects the body and brain, talks about tools to reduce and control it, and gives suggestions for recognizing the myriad situations that can trigger stress at home and at school and seeking help when necessary. Best of all, each one of these scenarios includes information on how the situation might be addressed. Nice also are the tips that encourage readers to use breathing exercises to calm and center themselves. Sprinkled throughout the book are quotes from teens on what works for them and what causes them anxiety. Related helplines are appended. This volume is one of a number of other similar-themed books, but it is probably safe to say that a school library, in particular, cannot have too many such titles. It may well be the one that strikes the right cord with a distressed teen.–Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ

"Well-organized, upbeat...strikes the right chord with a distressed teen." -School Library Journal


“Definitely worth reading...it will help you reduce how often you get stressed and help you deal with things that annoy you.” —Scholastic Choices Magazine


 “Too Stressed to Think? aims to help teenagers confront a common and powerful menace: Stress. The authors, both educators, have developed a curriculum to help teens understand how stress affects them physically and mentally and how to create more balance and control in their lives. In addition to gaining useful tools and techniques to combat stress, teens can read insights and suggestions by other teens and stories about real-life challenges.”
—Youth Today Magazine



“The perfect gift to give a teen. As a psychologist and a mother, I give this book two thumbs ‘way up.’ Bravo to Annie Fox and Ruth Kirschner for giving teens a sound resource to help them through the ‘roller-coaster years’”—Louise Masin Sattler, NCSP, owner of Signing Families

Format: Paperback
I first was introduced to Annie Fox's books when my own children were tweens. I loved how they were the pulse of the average teen. Written in a format that was engaging and also kept the attention of my hard to attend children. "Too Stressed to Think" veers a bit differently from Annie's Middle School Confidential series and talks frankly to kids about how to manage stress, communicate with those that love and care for them, and make wise and informed choices. I really liked how Ms. Fox and her co-author, Ruth Kirschner, delivered helpful ideas that were simple, but so important, such as how to "re-center with breathing". The "Good Friends" checklist makes this book so incredibly valuable as making and losing friends can be so traumatic for teens. As a psychologist and a mother I give this book two thumbs "way up" ! ! Bravo to Annie Fox and Ruth Kirschner for giving teens a sound resource to help them through the "roller-coaster years"!
