Teenagers seek help from school counselors to discuss many issues that they face. This can be a scary and uncertain time as ones' identity with self and others is critical during adolescence. A diary is often kept by teenagers in order to chart their progress with a problem or person, and to record their most memorable experiences with their counselor. The reasons teens seek help from their counselor can range from what class to take, to family issues, to coping with a disability, to the death of a loved one. So real life issues are included in this book as well as real life solutions. This is a good read for all young people and those adults who are still young at heart. This is a great book for anyone working with teens and young adults. Also, there are resources at the end of the book and a special section with tips on how to avoid typical pitfalls when attending college or any higher ed institution.
