“In a sea of social media overload and misinformation, tweens could use a source of honest, trustworthy information that even adults can refer to. Speaker and activist Taylor has compiled answers on 12 topics from emotions, gender, and sexuality to racism, government, and climate change. . . . Taylor always encourages adolescents to ask questions and speak their truths while being kind to themselves and others. This work supports critical thinking and should be embedded in lessons on Indigenous rights, biology, current events, media literacy, and in social studies about antiracism. A concise place for tweens and teens to find accessible answers to questions that everyone has pondered at some point, updated for the 21st century. Essential for SEL and social studies shelves.” - School Library Journal, starred review

“Interesting comparisons help make Taylor’s practical advice feel relevant. The tone overall is hip, humorous, and irrepressibly positive, and the author is clear that adults, not young people, bear responsibility for solving socialproblems. Holds out a sympathetic helping hand to a cohort of young people dealing with exceptional stressors.” - Kirkus

“Taylor provides just enough background information tounderstand the causes and intersections of systemic issues, and once again, she accentuatespositive changes, embracing diversity, and setting healthy boundaries. Concluding self-love tips sum up the mission of this inclusive, affirming resource.” - Booklist
