    Description"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."

    Review quote
    "The breadth of emotion and experience the entries cover guarantee that almost any reader will identify with some of the situations and anxieties expressed." -- "Publishers Weekly""Along with sincere encouragement and sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious, honesty, we also get photos of the writers as teenagers--in all their goofy, once-trendy, clumsy glory; that is to say--in all their beautiful, open, hopeful, eager embraces of the life they hope to grow into." -- "ForeWord Reviews"
