Dear Teen Me Blog Tour: Review

 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.
Dear Teen Me is a collection of letters in which authors have written to themselves and I found all of them very interesting to read. They tell of first kisses, relationships, embarrassing memories, sad happenings, and what the author was like when they were teens. I think the letters showed the authors' writing/drawing styles and gave a look into what their books would be about. My favorite letter was Stephanie Kuehnert's because she revealed some sad memories with which a lot of teen girls can relate to and her letter had me understanding her books a little more. Dear Teen Me is an anthology you don't want to miss out on.
