I think Rosalind's book was amazing; it tackled appearance and loving the way you look phenomenally. [...] It was a fantastic read and I know it will be helpful for teens today;
Superstar blogger/writer/student/model Rosalind Jana is a favourite of mine and this non-fiction book, which "stretches from feminism to fashion to the pleasures and pitfalls of selfies", sounds like a must-read.
The phrase "voice of a generation" gets bandied around a lot but Rosalind Jana is certainly someone who can lay claim to that epithet. Her voice is smart, warm, feminist and funny and and Notes of Teenage is a wonderful blend of anecdote, advice and insight; Rosalind is like the online older sister you wish you had when you were a teenager and it's the sort of book I would have loved to give to the teenagers I used to work with.
Ros speaks like a confident and worldly best friend, who doesn't just tell you what to do, but shares how she did it, too. That's so very generous. Reading her words is a comfort, and a joy. She's smart and educated, kind and bold - I'm so impressed by her.
20-year-old student Rosalind Jana showcases realistic views and an indispensable look at modern life.
She consciously avoids the mistake of being too of the moment and her advice is timeless ... coming form one so near to teenage I hope it is more credible and listened to than when coming from the mouths of teachers and parents
Notes on Being Teenage covers all aspects of teenhood ... the author is well-placed to offer advice and guidance o anyone navigating their teenage years. She is close enough to her teen years to understand how teens feel in today's world, so they will respond well to her advice
