Waiting on Wednesday: Dear Teen Me

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Dear Teen Me
ed. by Miranda Kenneally and E. Kristin Anderson
Published by Zest Books
Publication Date: November 16, 2012

Dear Teen Me includes advice from over 70 YA authors (including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, and Nancy Holder, to name a few) to their teenage selves. The letters cover a wide range of topics, including physical abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurities to fill an auditorium. So pick a page, and find out which of your favorite authors had a really bad first kiss? Who found true love at 18? Who wishes he’d had more fun in high school instead of studying so hard? Some authors write diary entries, some write letters, and a few graphic novelists turn their stories into visual art. And whether you hang out with the theater kids, the band geeks, the bad boys, the loners, the class presidents, the delinquents, the jocks, or the nerds, you’ll find friends--and a lot of familiar faces--in the course of Dear Teen Me.(from Amazon)

I had a different Waiting on Wednesday scheduled for today, but as soon as I saw the cover reveal for Dear Teen Me, I HAD to change it. When I first found out about one of my favorite sites becoming a book, I was so happy. I love reading and rereading all of the author letters written to their teen selves. I've found so many new and upcoming authors from the site and hope to one day have the opportunity to read more of their writing. Add this book to your wish lists, TBR piles, and maybe even tell some friends about it. Until then, visit Dear Teen Me at and see what it is all about!
