Overview

A book by a teenager for teenagers!

Words of a Journey is a book for anyone who wants to take a closer look at life's meaning and their experiences.
Seventeen-year old Kaitlyn Kashman has designed this book to provide thought-stimulation on various issues and feelings that young adults explore. The book is a potpourri of poetry, with introspective,
inspirational questions and observations to stimulate thought in readers so they can come to a clearer understanding of their own feelings and desires.

Topics for deeper introspection run the vast range of emotions and situations young adults experience to help readers analyze and clarify their own relationships:

  • Understanding unrequited love leads to analysis between what is a want vs. a need.
  • The difficulties of first love, learning about oneself, seeking the thrill of love, and knowing when it is best to end.
  • Discovering that one cannot change for another person.
  • Learning that sometimes we love our own fictional version of a person.
  • Nourishing a budding sense of new identity.
  • Finding the boundaries between two people, accepting and embracing ourselves.

    An important book for any teenager or young adult, Words of a Journey will take readers down a path that will lead them back home to find a better version of themselves.

    This book is about the life of a teenager and her reflections and the way in which she has dealt with them. There are also inspirational quotes about what she observes around her and the emotions and thoughts that are connected with those observations. There are also many interesting thoughts that give a new perspective on things that have become such an integral part of life that many people now take for granted. This book helps the reader to take a step back from a busy and disturbed life.

    I would definitely recommend Words of a Journey to everyone that I know. I think that Kaitlyn's book is very inspirational and would be very helpful to anyone who would want or need to examine their own experiences and ideas.Words of a Journey could be life changing for some people especially if those people trouble dealing with their own lives. It would also be good for aspiring writers or even non-writers who are kind of lost and are in need of a way to express themselves.

    Meet the Author

    My name is Kaitlyn Kashman; I’m a seventeen-year-old teenager just like any other. I grew up mostly in Calgary, Alberta, Canada but also lived in Airdrie, Alberta for four years. I lived with my parents and two brothers until three years ago when my parents divorced and my father moved away to Kelowna, British Columbia. I am now living with my mom, step dad, brother and sister. I am attending Centennial
    High School and will be finishing my last year. I hope to move on to University shortly after high school. I will study education and fine arts since I hope one day to teach elementary school and open my own photography studio. I plan to continue writing and to publish many books of my poetry and quotations.

    I wrote this book because I, just like everyone else, have gone through a hard time. Writing was one thing that helped me through the challenges. I wrote down all my feelings, ranging from sadness to happiness and love to hate. I wrote this book because I wanted others to know that they aren’t alone. Everyone goes through rough patches, and sometimes all a person needs is a little inspiration, which I hope this book will provide. I hope my readers will get a unique perspective on life and will realize that everyone has fought a hard battle and no one is ever alone. I hope all my readers can relate to my writing and can gain strength from it.
