Follow Friday -- Dear Teen Me

Katherine Longshore 2 Friday, February 04, 2011
Ever wish you could talk to your younger self?  Offer advice?  Maybe add a warning or two?  (Stay away from that boy.  I'm serious.  And that haircut makes you look like a poodle.)  Or maybe just let your self know you'll grow up to be OK.  That the trauma will somehow make you stronger.

Well, Dear Teen Me gives you the chance to read the letters that authors for teens and tweens wish they could send back in time.  Some are funny, some are serious, some are heart-wrenching.  All of them are honest.  Written by established authors like A.S. King and Sarah Ockler, and by the up-and-coming authors of the YA future, these letters are compulsive reading.

Created and hosted by authors Miranda Kenneally and E.Kristin Anderson, this site has tapped into a wealth of emotion and creativity and I, for one, try to read it daily.


Agreed. Dear Teen Me is a great concept and a moving, inspiring blog stop!

I'll have to go check it out. Thanks for the heads up.
