MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS:
I absolutely loved this book! It gave me great advice that will really help me survive my teenage years and be the best teenager I can be!
My favorite advice is knowing what "I bring to the party." I feel that too many of my friends are changing themselves to fit in and by knowing what makes me "me", it helps a lot because I realize that I should stay myself and not try so hard to fit in.
I recommend this book for those teens that need help surviving their life of middle and high school.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 and older.
