THE BOOK THAT EVERY TEENAGE GIRL SHOULD OWN NOW - AND ADULTS WILL WISH THEY OWNED BACK THEN. I wanted to be a unicorn. I wanted to be a princess. I wanted to be an astronaut. But the thing I really wanted to be more than anything else, was a little less like me.It was only recently I realised not wanting to be me when I grew up was at the heart of every dumb decision I ever made. And when I really sat down and thought about it, being me was the thing that people most actually liked about me and it was much easier than trying to be someone else. And so, now I find myself writing this book containing all the life lessons I wish someone had told me at 14, which I am only really learning now. A book for the teenage girl in me. And for every teenage girl out there. Because the most powerful thing you can be when you grow up is yourself.Sharing 10 crucial life lessons, Bryony Gordon explores everything from self-respect, sport and snowflakes, to body image, puberty and masturbation. Frank, fearless and not for the faint-hearted, this book is the ultimate guide to growing up happy. Which will be easy, because we already know you got this.
