Here’s a little about what each of the books are about:
In Alexis, Alexis Singer gives an honest voice to the very real phenomenon of online solicitation. In Alexis, she shares her harrowing story of being sucked into an emotionally dependent and cybersexual relationship by an older man she met in a chat room. “I probably would have forgotten about that first online conversation if it weren’t for his surprising interest in me…I would have dismissed him as just another creep,” Alexis writes.
In Hannah, author Hannah Westberg writes, “The psych ward is where you go to get from fragile to shattered. It’s like taking your car to get washed and getting your windshield broken in the process.” As told through brutally honest vignettes, Hannah brings the reader into one teen’s world of dangerous behaviors—from pill popping and excessive dieting to cutting and suicide attempts—brought on by the author’s borderline personality disorder.
In Rae, brilliant young author Chelsea Rae Swiggett writes, “If I keep acting normal, I hope one day I will be, but every time I try, I just let myself down.” This incredible memoir gives an inside glimpse of living life with a condition more and more common in today’s teens—severe anxiety disorder.
