Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

This addition to the Instant Help Solutions series advises teenage readers on how to develop self-esteem. Schab emphasizes that self-esteem isn't simply about feeling good about oneself but about being fair-minded, reflective, and compassionate. She provides 50 "thinking habits" to aid them in building positive self-images. For each habit, she includes scenarios in which a teenager struggles with negative feelings ("Michael hated his sensitivity. Most of his friends liked horror films and contact sports, but Michael preferred happy endings and working out solo)." In each scenario, a peer or adult urges the teenager toward reframing their thinking by, for example, celebrating their strengths, finding more than one source for self-esteem, facing challenges head-on, and setting boundaries. Though the layout is fairly text-dense, readers are sure to find helpful techniques for building themselves up in the real world. Ages 13–up. (Jan.) Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly.

Gr 7 Up—As a companion to Schab's 2016 Self-Esteem for Teens: Six Principles for Creating the Life You Want, this offers 50 important and effective ways for teens to make positive changes in their lives. Based on the principles of mindfulness—gratitude, radical acceptance, and being non-judgmental both personally and of others—the book is broken into two parts. The first part addresses instilling positive thoughts, while the second focuses upon positive actions. Each entry begins with a perceptive hypothetical scenario, then introduces an associated positive thought or action to "perceive, believe, and achieve." Helpful step-by-step advice is given each time and a pertinent quote by someone famous enhances each goal. Goals range from dealing with various insecurities, to friendships, to making good choices, to making amends, and to reversing self-harm. Teens can aim for the goals with which they best connect, though the advice can be applied universally. VERDICT Deftly written, easy to follow and comprehend, and completely on target, this self-help guidebook belongs in every school and public library nonfiction collection serving teens.—Diane P.
