My DEAR TEEN ME letter

My DEAR TEEN ME letter is now up:

I love this blog.  A number of other YA authors have posted letters to their teen selves.  Mine is a little gritty and raw and I thank Cheryl Rainfield, the author of SCARS, for giving me the courage to write this.  I can't help but think how much a letter like this would have helped me during my darkest moments.

If you could, what would you write to your teen self?


  1. Now there's a concept. Although there are days when I think I had it more together as a teen. Honest. Would my teen self be aghast at who I am as an adult???

  2. A touching letter, Kim.

    My teen self was shy and nieve and I'd tell her to be braver.
