Being a teenager is hard - school is challenging, colleges or careers are looming on the horizon, family issues arise, friends and love come and go, bodies and emotions go through major changes, and many teens experience the loss of a loved one for the first time. This book supports and inspires teenagers as they grow up, and reminds them they are not alone, as they read stories written by other teens just like themselves, about the problems and issues they face every day.
