Do You Know Who You Are?

 

Do You Know Who You Are?

Teenagers love to find out more about their favorite subject — themselves, and journaling has been proven to improve mental health by helping people heal, grow and thrive. Do You Know Who You Are? fits perfectly on a shelf alongside the likes of Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith, All about Me Teenage Edition: The Story of Your Life by Philipp Keel, CosmoGirl and Seventeen Magazine's quiz books, or The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky which focuses on the life and difficulties of a high school student through a series of journal-like entries.


 

Heads Up Psychology

 

Heads Up Psychology

Wouldn't the Divergent series be all the more compelling with a deeper understanding of psychology? Veronica Roth herself cites her Psych 101 class as an inspiration for the series. Could Thomas and the rest of the boys in The Glade have escaped in The Maze Runner series by James Dashner if they had increased psychological knowledge and problem solving skills? It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini tackles the mix of emotions teens sometimes face when preparing to enter the world of choosing a career path. In Heads Up Psychology, teens can discover the six basic human emotions — surprise, anger, disgust, fear, happiness and sadness and how they are so powerful that it's difficult to hide them or control our behavior.
