Aimed at teenage girls, Leave Your Mark Here: A Journal by Celeste Kadatz, illus. by Tracy McGuinness, challenges readers to respond to such questions as ""What really bugs you?"" (""Snarly dogs really bug me,"" confides Kadatz), suggests ways to make up with your parents (""If you're really mad, give yourself and your parents a squirt gun and go outside and squirt it out,"" she counsels, after offering more conventional wisdom) and supplies space to record friends' birthdays. With themes that change every couple of pages and perky computer-generated color spot art, this inviting volume also includes an envelope pasted inside the back cover and, for added privacy, comes with a bound-in rubber-band enclosure. (Chronicle, $14.95 paper 112p ages 12-up ISBN 0-8118-2549-3; Sept.)
