Dear Teen Me: Authors Write Letters to Their Teen Selves

Dear Teen Me: Authors Write Letters to Their Teen Selves - Joseph Bruchac, Kersten Hamilton, Sara Zarr, Mitali Perkins, Mari Mancusi, Stasia Ward Kehoe, Ellen Hopkins, Dave Roman, Don Tate, Cynthia Leitich Smith, Caridad Ferrer, Jessica Lee Anderson, Melissa Walker, Carrie Jones, Charles Benoit, Jo Whittemore, Mariko Tamaki, Jenn
OVERALL IMPRESSION: You could easily look through the table of contents to find a story that relates to your situation, or you could read it through cover to cover, which is what I did.

I love the Q & A features. I wish there were more of them. It was interesting to me to see the different responses everyone gave to the same question.

There wasn't as much advice in the letters as I thought there would be. Many of the letters were just authors retelling an event of their lives.

I think this book would have been good for me to read while I was in high school. It would have given me insight into how other teens were feeling and what different people were going through.

COVER: I like the cover. It is interesting to see pictures of authors from their high school days and compare them with how they look today.

*I received an ARC of the book for my honest review.
