Aptly titled Dear Teen Me, seventy YA authors share advice to teens in this compilation of essays. This format allows today's’s teens to reflect on life from advice by these authors who range in age from 18-80. This book is part of Zest Books new line of literary memoirs – “True Stories” – with guidance that comes from the hearts of the authors as they navigate the challenges of their teen lives.
Photographs and brief biographies of the respective authors along with cartoon-like illustrations supplement the text. Question and Answer sections provide answers from the authors on such questions as: What was your most embarrassing moment? Today’s teen will learn that he or she is not the only one who has challenges during these difficult years, and will find hope and inspiration in these pages.
