    Book details


Do you:
- Often feel afraid to let anyone know how bad you feel and why you feel that way?
- Hide your feelings--pretending to be happy and that life is going along as it always did?
- Deny your feelings or cover them up with angry or impulsive behavior--lashing out at parents, family, friends, or teachers?
- Try to numb your feelings with alcohol, drugs, sex, or eating disorders--not always realizing what you're doing and why?
If you can't seem to get in touch with your emotions--and you feel that there's no one you can turn to--then you need Life Happens. Written by specialists in adolescent psychology and medicine, this reassuring guide offers information to help you understand that the way you're feeling is totally normal, even when it seems that you're depressed for no reason at all. Using the voices and letters of teens seeking help, the authors discuss some of today's most difficult situations--from the pressure to get good grades to questions concerning sexuality to dealing with your parents. You'll learn the steps you can take to help yourself, as well as how and where to get professional help, if you want it.

Review Text

  • By S. Cook on 12 July 2008

    I bought this for my 13 year old daughter as I thought it might help her with a few problems she has been having. Being able to buy it from the amazon.co.uk site and also (I thought)from the title, I assumed that it would be relevant to us.It is totallly geared to a US audience (with such things as the language difference - mom, graduation, apartment, 'parking' etc; the way of life used in the 'real-life' letters/scenarios are incredibly different to that experienced in the UK) and the book I felt was also aimed at an older teenager rather than the younger.I did not buy this book for the depression angle - the 11th point on the book's cover of the subjects included in the book - so was absolutely horrified that the first few chapters focussed wholly on feeling down/bad/depressed; had a run through of various types of depression and even checklist to help the reader determine whether or not they were likely to suffer depression!Perhaps this is what a US reader needs but some of the questions and the whole tone of the book made me realise that my daughter has a good, safe, normal teenage life, supportive home life and really does not need a book focusing on negative aspects of being a teenager - and to be told that she needs a therapist!
