Read an Excerpt

PART 1 Who I Am:

Creating an Identity of My Own Our life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark. Chinese Proverb I Am . . . Accept Me as I Am . . . Who Am I ? . . .

The Paintbrush I keep my paintbrush with me, wherever I may go,
In case I need to cover up, so the real me doesn't show.
I'm so afraid to show you me; afraid of what you'll do,
I'm afraid you'll laugh or say mean things; afraid I might lose you.
I'd like to remove all the layers, to show you the real, true me,
But I want you to try to understand; I need you to like what you see.
So if you'll be patient and close your eyes, I'll remove the coats real slow,
Please understand how much it hurts, to let the real me show.
Now that my coats are all stripped off, I feel naked, bare and cold,
And if you still find me pleasing, you are my friend, pure as gold.
I need to save my paintbrush though, and hold it in my hand,
I need to keep it handy in case someone doesn't understand.
So please protect me, my dear friend, and thanks for loving me true,
And please let me keep my paintbrush with me, until I love me, too.

    A new best friend

    This is a good book for any teen. Though some of the questions are repetitive, they make one take a look in to different areas of his/her personality. Anyone who like to to write will love this book
