Blog Tour and Giveaway | Dear Teen Me Edited by Miranda Kenneally and E. Kristin Anderson

Today I have the pleasure of hosting one of many stops in the Dear Teen Me Blog Tour.

While time does not allow me to draft my own Dear Teen Me letter, I would recommend this book to all teens and adults a like. I didn’t read all of the letters but the ones that I did really touched me. I would have to say that Carrie Jones’ letter was one of the best. It actually really concerned me because my husband just had a case of mono.

Zest Books | October 30, 2012 | 192 pages

Summary (Goodreads)

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.

  1. I would let my teen self know that everything doesn’t have to work out exactly as you want it too and things do get better. The world doesn’t revolve around high school and the people in it and those people who made fun of you turned out to be total losers in the real world while you actually went out and made a difference. So keep your head up and stay true to yourself because you are going to do better than you ever thought.

  2. I would let my teen self know that no matter what other people say about you it doesn’t matter. It is how you see yourself. Tore923@aol.com

  3. I would tell my teen self that it’s ok to make mistakes. You cannot please everybody.
