When I think of books written for teenagers, I usually think of authors who try to connect with teenagers by inspiring, pleading and sometimes scaring them into listening to their story; Which is why Life Lists for Teens pleasantly surprised me. There aren’t any boring or overly dramatic stories; There are just great tips for making life a little less stressful for teenagers. In fact, there are hundreds of tips, hints and how-tos for growing up, getting along, learning, and having fun.

Pamela Espeland, the author of Life Lists for Teens, has spent countless hours researching and gathering together some of the most insightful and practical information for teenagers that I’ve ever seen. The conciseness of the lists, and the way the lists are organized, makes it easy for teenagers with a short attention span to get the most out of the book. Pamela Espeland even encourages young readers to write down or photocopy lists, so they can take their lists with them.

There are a total of 254 lists that are included in the following chapters:

This book is definitely the resource that I wish I had had when I was a teenager. All of us who are reading this (that is, who aren’t teenagers right now) obviously survived our teenage years. However, I think Life Lists for Teens has the potential to help teenagers survive their teenage years with less stress, and hopefully less confusion.
