I run a centre for teenagers and would really recommend this book for selected ones. They need to be Y10/Y11 really and often the type of kids who are more independant and want to do what they want. I coach them to be open minded and read this book for themselves and not anyone elsee. I recently had one troubled girl who I lent a book just to give it a go and she came back to me asking to buy it. I also gave her the superb workbook that goes with this book and I would recomment it. It helps them make better choices for themselves and become self-driven.
