It's not just another book by a grownup, however good books by grownups might be. It's a book by a teen about teens - and so from the horse's mouth, as it were. But for all that, the attitude and approach is still very mature, and the communication of the insights is skillfully done, without arrogance, and with awareness that maybe not every teen is the same. There are good rules of thumb here, not only for parents, but for anyone who wants to be able to better understand and relate to the teens of today.

I have read lots of parenting books and several on teenagers but never one from the teenager's point of view.Jellyellie says it like it is from where she's standing at the moment and she shares conversations she has had with her friends.I was intrigued to get this glimpse into today's teenage world.The sections on music and fashion contain information that only an 'insider' could know.

My teenage son was so curious about this book that he read it too and now it provides a really good starting point for discussions with him about issues we need to resolve.It has already come off the shelf on three different occasions to see what it was that Jellyellie had to say about pocket money,part time jobs and financing hobbies.

A lively read and some positive ideas that will get all the family talking.

An Excelent book from a Bright Teenager.

Its good to see a book from a teenagers point of view, I read this and thought "Thats what i was thinking when i was a teen"

I Just wish there was a book like this when i was going through thoes adolecent stages!

Well Done Jelliyellie..

being a teenager myself i can relate to a lot of the things ellie has said and now so can my parents!

until now, the way we think was like a whole new universe to our parents but this book is the first to really explain how teenagers see the world.

an easy to read, light hearted book written by some one who really "knows where its at" :)

nice one ellie!

I'm proud to have persuaded Steve Wright to interview her on the big show cos I loved this book and my kids aren't even at this stage yet.

The tips apply though, even now if we meet their friends in town the 9 year old squirms - as jelliellie says if you meet your teenagers mates whilst shopping do the decent thing - hide !!!

It was wonderful to read a book written by a teenager who understands fully what its like being a teenager in the 21st Century. I found it concise, honest and full of good advice for me as a parent of two teenagers who sometimes struggles with the issues that they face. The chapter on sex and drugs I found particularly helpful as these are often subjects that parents of teenagers find difficult to talk about, the advice given here I found invaluable.

Thank you Jellyellie for writing this book, I refer to it often and it has become like my own personal 'bible'.

A lighthearted approach, but with some very sensible suggestions. You may disagree with some of it, but that just helps you think.
