For Teens Only
This Book Is For Guys Too!
For Teens Only features 580 quotes on seven subjects: Mind, Body, Friends, Relationships, School, Family and Work. Many quotes are from brilliant dead white men (Shakespeare, Abe Lincoln, Oscar Wilde, Pablo Picasso). Even more are from scintillating women, people of color, people who are alive, and cartoon characters (Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Chris Rock, Homer Simpson). And of course, since I'm an advice columnist who has been writing for teens ever since I was a teen, I went ahead and put in more than my own two cents on every single page. The result? For Teens Only is an empowering collection of varied voices that can give you the tools to get along, get ahead, and get to know yourself better.

BOOKPAGE: "Weston's breezy book offers advice that young adults may actually take to heart. Never didactic, always comforting, Weston writes in a just-chatting-with-you-on-paper style and she knows her audience.... A grown-up with valid advice, she's more like a fun aunt or older cousin than a mom or a teacher....appealing...inspiring...a treasure trove."
STUDENT WEEKLY of Thailand: "This is a great book that is full of advice for teens..." Selected as one of the top five books of 2003!
BOOKLIST: "...Many teens will find Weston's jocular tone infectious."
SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL: "Sage advice...inspiring quotes...all presented in an understanding and straightforward manner...Weston is known for her previous outstanding self-help books, such as Girltalk: All the Stuff Your Sister Never Told You. This book follows suit with a writing style to which teens--both boys and girls--can really relate, almost as if the author is in the room having a conversation with them. Other books use different approaches...However, none use the technique of maneuvering numerous quotes as effectively as Weston does in this title."
ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION (Knight Ridder Service): "a collection of wise words from just about everyone you can think of, from Aesop to Langston Hughes to Madonna...solid guidance for teens facing the problems of growing up."
