I Am Me: Teen Artists and Writers Speak Out on Being Yourself pairs award winning art and writing to empower teens to shake off negative influences and realize it is okay to be themselves. Each piece of art is skillfully matched with writing to reflect the attitude of a generation of teens who want to fit in, but feel inadequate due to societal pressures. This is a powerful book that can help young people believe that you don't have to achieve "perfection" to be "perfect."
