That was the inspiration for How to Survive Absolutely Anything, my contemporary YA novel from Fitzhenry and Whiteside. I knew that I wasn't the only person who ever felt that way. But now, having survived the angsty times and reached the wise old age of ahem, I knew a little bit about how to deal.
So I created Bonnie and Jen, and their kooky 'Agony Aunt'-style blog for other teens.
Here's a snippet from the book:
"• Ok so if you’ve clicked on this blog you probably want to know how to survive something terrible.
• And if you are in middle school or junior high, guaranteed, something terrible has happened to you.
Is happening to you right now.
Or is about to happen to you.
• How do we know?
• Because we’ve been there. Definitely been there."
Naturally, Bonnie and Jen's plan to help other kids goes pear-shaped. Will they both survive their very-different, but very real challenges?
I hope you'll pick up the book as soon as it hits store shelves - any minute now! And please let me know what you think of the new cover!
