This book shares a variety of strategies for resiliency and developing skills to support mental well-being. Topics covered include: setting boundaries, asking for support, and standing up for what you believe in. Over approximately 150 pages, this colourful and aesthetically pleasing book shares some really great information for tweens and teens about building skills to become strong and independent young adults. With real life situations as examples such as: unfair chores, needing help at school or navigating difficult relationships, it will be easy for young readers to connect with the stories and find strategies that might actually work for them. I would highly recommend this book to parents and teachers of adolescents in the children in the age 11-17 range. I don't think there is any content (that I noticed anyway) that is inappropriate for younger readers or that parents should be concerned about, but it does seem to be aimed at middle and high school age readers. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!
