Help Yourself for Teens
Real-life Advice for Real-life ChallengesBook - 2005
Dave Pelzer continues his tireless crusade against despair with this uplifting book, written specifically for young adults. Sharing stories of his own adolescent struggles--fighting for his life against his alcoholic mother and enduring outrageous oppression at the hands of bullies and false friends--Pelzer imparts advice to help young people rise above their circumstances and achieve greatness. He offers teenagers practical solutions for overcoming their own hardships, focusing on three areas: facing current and past problems; realizing the importance of decisions; and finally, never giving up on oneself. Through it all, Pelzer never lets his readers forget that they alone have control over the outcomes of their lives.--From publisher description.
