Stressed at school, unhappy with how they look and fed up with their parents – the difficult combination of performance pressure at school and the onset of puberty can be tricky for many teenagers. Is there anything that helps? Maybe it’s this book! It explains to boys and girls how to become more mindful and balanced. How to learn to accept themselves. The texts are informative and entertaining. Many pages feature inspirational quotes or novel activity suggestions: for example, a “griping diet” and a “happiness bingo”; relaxation exercises; many pages to fill in that inspire boys and girls to reflect, or a checklist of digital time-eaters. Readers can even award themselves medals for their positive qualities. After all, this is an activity book as much as an encouragement book. Boys and girls realise: I’m fine the way I am!
