Read an Excerpt
People talk a lot about how tough it is to be a teenager. But what about being a tweenager? Talk about drama! Just cuz we're not dealing with college apps or major boy issues yet, doesn't mean serious stuff isn't happening in our lives. We've got crazy/busy schedules, our bodies keep changing, our best buds are acting weird, our parents are buggingand we're stressing from all the pressure to be and do a lot of different things (some of which are impossible, like getting the mean girl to hike it to another school or dating a Jonas Brother!)
I hope this book will help young girls everywhere transition into their teenage years with a positive attitude, tons of girl power, and the inspiration to be and appreciate yourself for simply BEING YOU! (Remember: it's cool to be different.) I like to think of 113 Things To Do By 13 as the go-to guide to being a hip n' happening n' totally competent tweenager! More than 100 peeps contributed their expertise and packed the following pages with tips on everything from the coolest fashion musts to Ply crafts to smart-girl advice on gossip, cyber-bullying, crushes, body issues, and making big dreams happen at a young age. Even a few of our fave celebs, like Selena Gomez and the Camp Rock gals, shared their teen survival tips.
So, jump to your favorite section or read it cover-to-cover! May you enjoy reading 113 Things To Do By 13, as much as I liked writing it and discovering for myself why 13 is such an awesome age. Hey, there's plenty of time (at least a few years) to stress about getting our license, college, and not to mention that work thing. So, let's kick off our teen years in a super fab way&151;and celebrate all the great things we can do and learn right now.
