I highly recommend this book for teens and teen educators. Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Master, poet, scholar, activist, and author of Being Peace

The Mindful Teen is a beautifully written book that walks the line between making mindfulness easy and accessible to teens who may or may not be inclined to delve deeply into the topic and providing real substance and depth to a powerful practice and way of living. Full of understandable, doable practices, super relevant examples, and quotes, this book doesn t talk down to kids, but speaks up to future adults who deeply desire to overcome the challenges they face and not only succeed, but thrive. A valuable guide to living the practice of mindfulness that anyone could benefit from reading. Steven D. Hickman, PsyD, founder and executive director of the University of California, San Diego Center for Mindfulness, and associate clinical professor at the UC San Diego School of Medicine
