Dear Teen Me
Dear Teen Me includes advice from over 70 YA authors (including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, and Nancy Holder, to name a few) to their teenage selves. The letters cover a wide range of topics, including physical abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurities to fill an auditorium. So pick a page, and find out which of your favorite authors had a really bad first kiss? Who found true love at 18? Who wishes he’d had more fun in high school instead of studying so hard? Some authors write diary entries, some write letters, and a few graphic novelists turn their stories into visual art. You’ll find friends--and a lot of familiar faces--in the course of Dear Teen Me.

Dear Teen Me: Authors Write Letters to Their Teen Selves (True Stories)

Hannah: An Autobiography of Hannah Simmons Gibb.
Hannah was born in 1855 in London, England. As a baby, she traveled to America, crossing the plains in a handcart, and settling in Lehi, Utah. As a young woman, she became the second wife of John Lye Gibb. She was forced "to live on the underground" to hide from U.S. Marshals, who sought her husband on charges of polygamy. She was arrested and sent to an internment camp. In 1901, she moved to Canada, where she built the first house in Raymond, Alberta. As a mid-wife, she delivered hundreds of babies. In her 70s she started to write poetry. At 82 she wrote her personal history. This book contains selections of her poetry and her personal history.
