Shannon McLinden, wrote a book about herself. She a very talented, beutiful girl, she is a girl that is willing to tell her story of what happened to her. Mrs. Zimba, my teacher and her's, asked her to visit Northdale Middle School, and she came, she was at the school talking to the girls only, bout how hard it is going to be for you. And how worried she is for us,because we have a hard life coming for us. She said," You all are just in this sliver of life and the 24 hours that you have are yours and yours only." She told us about her life and how hard it was for her, and that she understands us, I know that everyone was our age (13) before, but she helped all of my Friends and others a lot, and of course me. by Brynn

I loved this book. It changed the way I looked at my life and helped me to realize the things that should really matter. It is one of my favorite books. Shannon McLinden is a great author and should be very proud of her accomplishments. She will have the confidence that she helped many teens get through some hard times.

When I first read this book in the seventh grade, it struck me as odd because I had never read a book that made me laugh and cry within one chapter. The way Shannon tells her story is so.. I don't know.. intense? It teaches you so much about yourself. After finishing The Me Nobody Knew, I put it down to go to sleep and started reading it again the next day. I'm a senior in high school now and I've read it multiple times since then. I will never get bored with this book.

I just got done reading 'The Me Nobody Knew.' It didn't take very long for me to read, it was easy to read and addicting. I'm not depressed and have never been, but it really helped me to understand those that have. I also really feel that I understand kind of what they're going through and maybe I can help them better. I would most definitely recommend this book to all youth. Adults would enjoy this book as well.

Shannon McLinden's 'The Me Nobody Knew' is an inspirational account of her childhood. It tells how she struggled through issues with high school, family and friends. She battles one bad relationship and bad friendship after another, all while trying to find herself. While bouncing from clique to clique, she slowly finds out who she really is. You never know where she'll be, whom she'll be with, or what she'll be doing. This story tells the trials and tribulations of a teenage girl trying to live up to the media's expectations of how a teenage girl should look and act. What I liked about this book was that Shannon went through some things that I myself am struggling with in life. All the accounts are totally relatable, in that if you yourself haven't gone through it, someone you know is or has. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who is struggling to understand him or herself or fit in, or just wants an inspirational and interesting read. I'm not saying that what happened to Shannon happens to everyone, but it gives a great example of some of the issues that plague the young crowd of today. This book is timeless, and the issues addressed can, and most likely will, be a problem for teens in the future and today.

It's weird that she went to the same school I am going too, and when I look at the water tower, I imagine those girls fighting. It was written amazingly, and I'm am so happy that I chose to read this book. It took me one night, and I just sat on my bed, not being able to set it down. I DEFINALTY recommened this book.

This book was so boring.It seems that all the main character did was whine & moan about her teenage years.I really can't see how this book could help troubled teens.

This was a wonderful book to readif you like relating your teenage problems and trama's to books and movies, like I do. I enjoyed the way this book toldthe problems, explained them, solved them, andgave the moral of the story right there in a short couple of pages. Ifyou want to learn about teen life in themedia, I recommend this book.

About four years ago I was in a bookstore and I saw this book. (I didn't buy it that day but with such a powerful cover with-in 48 hours I had gone back for the book. I read it from cover to cover and was amazed at how accurately the author described, the 'trials and errors' of growing up. The life of a troubled teenage girl came alive in these pages. I respect Shannon McLinden for taking her life expierence and 'putting it in the hand's of teenagers around the country.' I recomend this book to everyone! Read it, share it with your friends. This book proves that there is hope for everyone and it doesn't have to take 'hit-rock-bottom' to find it.

This book is a very terrific book. I'm sure most people, mostly males, don't know this stuff goes on with girls. And for those girls who know it goes on, since it goes on with them, this book could change their lives. Or even if you're alright, it's a good read, it's good to know what's going on, and maybe you have a friend who needs this book. Just try it sometime. You won't regret it. Pass it on, too; you could save someone's life.

I thought this book was very disappointing and at times annoying and even enraging. The author didn't shed any light on her depression, in my opinion. She mostly talked about 'normal' teenage things with the occasional thought that could be considered abnormal. I am not doubting that she was in fact depressed, but in the book, I do not feel she communicated her illness with us.

I read this book completely the first day I got it. I couldn't put it down, I loved it. I related to to her so well. It was like seeing myself in a whole new light. It actually made me sit down and think..and think hard. About my past present and future. And about what it would be like to be a parent to a child that was like me. I can't say enough good things about this book so I will just say to everyone no matter what your age is no matter what your sex is please go out and buy this book. Enlighten your mind and find yourself all over again.

Most teens go through all different kinds of trouble but this book send a message : You can heal and there are people out there, you are not alone. I recommend this book to every teenager, having troubles in life or not, because it will help you to grow as a person.

This book is extraordinary! It not only tells you of the preadult struggles of a girl fighting drug problems,but it also tells how anyone can overcome similiar problems. In a world where rape, drug abuse, eating disorders, and depression have become common, this book is a great guide to many girls who are going through or have gone through problems much like Shannon's. I highly recommend this book for ALL girls. I liked it so much I read the whole thing in one day! (I also like that it has helpful hints on dating. 'Women are God's daughters, and God's daughters don't go for jerks'-excerpt. It's an awesome book!

I picked up this book, and I couldn't put it down, I love it. It touched me deep down, and made me realize that I wasn't the only one who had to deal with backstabbing friends, fights, rumors, weight, depression, and all the other things. I was able to relate to this book, and I recommend it to anyone who needs a pick-me-up or a glimpse at real life.

My review of the book, WOW. Thinking all of the things you went through at a young age, makes what I went through so very minor. Your speech at my school made me pop out and be me again. Thank you!

This book is so awesome. Shannon just tells you like it is. The whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Just give it a try and you'll be hooked. When you're through, pass it on to your friends. Trust me, they'll appreciate it
