Title: Dear Teen Me: Authors Write Letters to Their Teen Selves
Published:  October 30th by Zest Books
Book given by the publisher
Book Description:
Dear Teen Me includes advice from over 70 YA authors (including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, and Nancy Holder, to name a few) to their teenage selves. The letters cover a wide range of topics, including physical abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurities to fill an auditorium. So pick a page, and find out which of your favorite authors had a really bad first kiss? Who found true love at 18? Who wishes he’d had more fun in high school instead of studying so hard? Some authors write diary entries, some write letters, and a few graphic novelists turn their stories into visual art. And whether you hang out with the theater kids, the band geeks, the bad boys, the loners, the class presidents, the delinquents, the jocks, or the nerds, you’ll find friends--and a lot of familiar faces--in the course of Dear Teen Me.

           First of all, I’m not really a non-fiction type of reader but this book became my first ever from the genre. I enjoyed it so much. I even brought this book to work which is a no no. I save people’s lives; the fact that I’m reading it during my shift is bad! But this book had completely taken my stress away. I’m in my early twenties; I’m not a teen any more. This book made me a bit nostalgic.

I only know few authors from Dear Teen Me, and I got to know new writers there too. I find myself laughing, smiling and sad in reading their letters. The array of stories made this book much more interesting. I was never bored. I also enjoyed being transferred to the 80’s and early 90’s. Those crazy hairstyles and 80’s outfits made me ask my mom if she has a photo with that herself.

Dear Teen Me is unique, fun, and original. You have to have this on your shelf.

Overall, this book is a keeper. If you like seeing your favorite authors through their own perspectives, then you will like this book.

This was 5 years ago back in my Senior Year of High School. As you can see...
I'm the one with the halo! 

I miss writing on the chalk board, sneaking out of class, cheer dancing, the smell of canteen food, my uniform, gym class where I sucked, copying home works and wearing my mary jane shoes. Time flies so fast :c
I give this 4 nostalgic whales.
