Synopsis

Life Freaks Me Out... and Then I Deal with it Reassuring Secrets from a Former Teenager by K. L. Hong

Inspired by the concerns of real teenagers, this thoughtful memoir addresses the many turbulent, confusing, and exhilarating situations teens face. Big questions such as: who am I, what's important to me, and, what am I called to do on this planet, are explored in candid autobiographical essays as well as bits of wisdom garnered from relatives, ancient poets, popular movies, co-workers, and a host of other sources. Sexuality, drug use, friendships, stress management, and self-esteem are among the important adolescent topics that this personal memoir addresses with warmth, compassion, and wit.

Reviews

In a guide that is achingly intimate and hands-on practical, Hong addresses teenagers as curious, moral, sexual, searching human beings. --Elizabeth J. Andrew, author, Swinging on the Garden Gate and Writing the Sacred Journey
