"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Dear Teen Me Blog Tour: The Giveaway!

I am so excited to be a part of this amazing blog tour for the new anthology from Zest Books, Dear Teen Me: Authors Write Letters to Their Teen Selves.  I have a lot of posts planned for this week that have to do with the book, so keep checking back to this main page to check all the posts out!

But first, here's more about this awesome book:

On Sale October 30
How many times have you looked back on your teenage years and cringed, wishing you could offer your younger self some advice and guidance?  That is exactly the premise behind Dear Teen Me, a book that began as a Twitter conversation between editors E. Kristin Anderson and Miranda Kenneally about their love for 90's pop group Hanson.  The letters included in Dear Teen Me are by 70 authors ranging in age from 18-80, and cover a wide variety of topics including physical abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurity to fill a high school auditorium.
Among the contributing authors are six New York Times bestsellers including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, and Nancy Holder. 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!

It is such a fantastic anthology filled with great advice for teenagers (and even some of us adults) who need reassurance that not all is hopeless and you will get over that ridiculous crush, bad hair, terrible break up, and feelings of being the only weirdo in school.

  1. I'd say not to fall in "love" so easily! UGH! I hope for a life full of the love I have now though :)

  2. I'd say to have more fun.

  3. I'd say enjoy every minute of it, because when you get older and have responsibilities like graduate school and husband and bills, you'll really start missing those teen years!


Thanks so much for stopping by; I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!!!!
