Editorial Reviews

"... encourages kids to think for themselves and start acting in ways that are true to themselves, not just what they think is "cool". All of this useful information is delivered in a highly-appealing package to kids no matter what group or clique they may identify with. Highly recommended."
Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Through cartoons, quizzes, small bites of information, and thoughtful questions this book helps tweens and teens think through some of the burning questions of who they are now, how they want to appear to others, and who they want to become. Image is defined as "how we appear to others" with a list of traits such as: clothes, how you talk, ethnic background, or body type. This is accompanied by a list of labels prevalent in schools. Image defines us to others for inclusion or exclusion. We want to project our true selves. No matter how we look, not everyone will like us. Fitting in is not the main thing in life. Respect yourself and do not be afraid to seek help. Look for the person behind the image. Stand up for what is right. This is one of the "Deal with it" series. Teens and tweens will find this attractive, soft-cover book interesting and helpful. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
