Our customer reviews

Provides a wonderful insight into the inner life of a person and the ability to "self-heal". It shows the importance of providing kids (and adults) a space where they will be able to EXPRESS themselves. A place in which they will not be judged and where they will be able to FIND and BE themselves... One of the best books I've ever read.show more
