Review: Break These Rules

35 YA Authors each write a short essay on which rules to break: ones they broke themselves or ones they wish they had broken - anything to make them feel more comfortable in their own skin.

My Thoughts: This book makes me reflect on my teen years and the rules I broke and the rules I wish I had broken. Looking at the past is never easy.

These authors bared their soul - lots of heartbreak, emotion, and drama in their essays. Eating disorders, abuse, religious questions, - this book covers it all. I like the idea of breaking across cliques, not saying silent, and learning to be comfortable in your own skin. A great book for teens to take a look at their own lives.

I did wish that the author bios were not in the back of the book, but with the author's essays.
