An upbeat and encouraging guide for shy teens and preteens
Fifty percent of Americans consider themselves shy, but teens and preteens wrestling with the problem may believe they''re the only one. Filled with knowing insights and funny drawings, this lively book helps teens experiencing panic on the inside and catastrophe on the outside to understand such things as the mechanics of their situation and the fact that they''re not the first person to own a mental VCR that replays embarrassing moments. It also lets shy kids know how common their problem is, and gives them tips for overcoming it.
