New York Times Bestseller

Postsecret.com founder Frank Warren is back with a fresh and compelling companion to his wildly popular Los Angeles Times bestseller, PostSecret. For My Secret, a collectible, paper-over-board book that includes a page of vibrant, decorative stickers, Warren has personally selected never-before-seen anonymous postcards created by teens and college students from across the country. Each card bears an intimate and powerful secret—at turns inspirational, shocking, hilarious, and poetic—that is told through original illustrations, photographs, collages, and other creative means. Sample messages include:

  • "I am avoiding you because you are socially below me."
  • "I know the truth to the lie my parents tell... "
  • "My friends think I was homeschooled. I spent high school in juvi."

A unique and important book that will appeal to both young adults and their parents, My Secret offers a raw and revealing glimpse into the real lives of today's teens and twentysomethings. Choosing their own handmade postcards over email or text messages, teens and college students express their hopes, fears, and wildest confessions in a way that truly represents their diverse personalities and voices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Each and every post card is so unique! Some of them let me know that I'm not the only one who says/does/thinks certain things and others bring a whole new perspective!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as the first one This is the second PostSecret book in the series. Although I really enjoyed this book, I did like the first book in the series more. I gave this one 4 stars as it’s pretty short compared to the others and I wish it had of been a bit longer. Some of the more memorable secrets from this book… I know the truth to the lie my parents tell…and they don’t know I do. My grandmother used to mail me postcards like this (blank ones) so I would write to her. She died seven years ago, and I just found this one in the attic. I’m sorry Grandma. … I should have written more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! It's a bit pricey, but the books are awesome! Really helps you remember that you share the same views or are experiencing the same things as many people around the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Idea I really wish I would have thought of this idea first. Although this isn't a novel, and there aren't alot of things to actually read in this book, it is so powerful. To know that people took the time to make the postcards and send them to a complete stranger is amazing. While looking at and reading the postcards in this part of Frank Warren's postcard books, I couldn't help but try to see what the people looked like that would be sending them in. It could be anyone, and that's the beauty of this book. The people that sent in postcards should be proud of themselves!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is well worth the small investment I liked Frank Warren's first book very much and I was hoping that this one will be at least as good as the first one. I am very pleased with his choice of really never before seen postcards that will make you laugh, sigh, and maybe even cry. There is so much power in the simple, yet so difficult act of sharing a personal secret with other people. Probably this is one of the reasons for the huge success of this project. My latest secret is the bestseller scientifically guaranteed male multiple orgasms and ultimate sex. I am sure that everyone who has enjoyed the first book will enjoy this one as well. I hope that Frank will continue maintaining his blog and the planned books will be also interesting and thrilling as his first two. Maybe we all should learn from these books that it is not that bad to share secrets with others. In conclusion, if you want to take a look at something refreshing and unique than you will want to take a copy of this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Book of Secrets This book is aimed at the secrets of younger people, university age and I have to say I cried more than I laughed. It was a really powerful book. The postcards themselves are so creative and beautiful and weird - it is a visual experience. Then you read the secrets. I did laugh, but I cried through most of the book. A good cry though. I hope letting go of their secret helps some of these people. I wish it had been twice as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great book of secrets Do you have a secret? I bet you do. I know I do....and so do all those people who sent in the postcards in this book. If you have not already heard of postsecret, its a great program started by Frank Warren. Its simple - take a postcard, write you secret on it, and send it to him. No one knows you wrote it, and it lets you express yourself and get that secret out there. I recommend everyone read these books to laugh, cry and experience the emotions these anonymous people have. Sent in a secret yourself? Maybe its in this book. Check out www.postsecret.com every Sunday for new secrets. You never know what new heartbreaks or great stories you will read about every week. The ONE problem with this book? Its too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Yet another exciting book fillied with secrets, and the only disappointing part is that it seems too short.
