Rachel Kempster Barry, Joannah Ginsburg, and Allison Singer. DK, $15.99 trade paper (192p) ISBN 978-1-4654-5657-1
This interactive handbook offers a forum for teens to explore what makes them tick as individuals. The book’s three chapters focus on readers’ past, present, and future selves, featuring quizzes, questionnaires, and fill-in-the-blank exercises. One spread, labeled “What Do You Believe?,” helps readers define their values by rating the degree to which they agree with 10 statements, such as, “I follow religious teachings and customs” and “Protecting the environment is the most important thing.” Future goals, looking back at how one has changed, habits, and other topics are presented in boldly designed spreads that make a strong visual impact. Readers overwhelmed by the noisy world will likely welcome the chance to reflect on where they have been and where they are going. Ages 13–up. (July)
