We’re all told to study hard in high school but none of us are ever taught HOW to study, let alone how to balance the increasing workload and demands of teenage life.So many students feel anxious, stressed and overwhelmed at the thought of starting high school because they think it means they are going to be given so much homework they will feel like they’re drowning. They feel a huge pressure to succeed, that they neglect other areas of their lives, which makes life more stressful and their grades actually suffer! But what if I told you that you don’t have to fall into this trap? That you can LOVE high school, form amazing friendships, grow your confidence, excel academically, feel proud of your achievements and at the same time, feel 100% supported! You don’t have to sacrifice your life to get through high school and I am going to show you step-by-step exactly how to do it and become your most organised, productive, motivated and confident self! My grandmother, who is full of wisdom but also fiery like the Mediterranean blood coursing through her veins, shared something with me that I always keep in mind, especially as I wrote this book. One day, when I was feeling overwhelmed, she ask me, “Jessica, how do you eat an elephant?” Then she answered, “One bite at a time.”

This is exactly what I do in The High School Survival Guide. I help you focus on each area of your life one step (or bite) at a time, from setting up the ideal study space, organising your study schedule and strategically revising for exams, to building your confidence, tackling study-stress and anxiety, avoiding burnout, and setting effective goals!

I Am Not a Juvenile Delinquent

By

After the death of her child, a grief-stricken psychotherapist volunteers as a poetry teacher at a residential treatment facility for delinquent girls. Here, their mutual support is nourishing and enriching to them all, though not without large quantities of drama and recalcitrance. For fans of the acclaimed movies Stand and Deliver and The Freedom Writers Diary comes I Am Not a Juvenile Delinquent . Selling Points: • Healing from grief can come in surprising ways, as it did for both the girls and me. It can come through the acts of writing and sharing our writing with each other, across generations and social classes. • There is not only a need but a curiosity and interest to know the “secret lives” of those behind bars or in detention centers; the great success of a program like “Orange Is The New Black” certainly emphasizes this point. Much of “I Am Not a Juvenile Delinquent” details the daily experiences of girls in detention, which are compelling, appealing, poignant and often hilarious. • The importance to the world of knowing the potential this population and breaking stereotypes, especially at this time of political tumult, the rising tides of racism and prejudice. Much of the world too easily slaps labels (“juvenile delinquent”) on these kids with little understanding or concern about how they arrived in these circumstances, and therefore incarcerates them with little regard to their emotional needs and rehabilitation.

They also note that anxiety disorders are now the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting roughly 1 in 4 people. Whether anxiety disorders are on the rise or if we are just more aware of what they are is up for debate, but the undeniable truth is that many people either suffer from or closely know someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder. So what do we do? In the face of something so overwhelming and frightening that lives within our own minds, how do we fight to regain our calm and control? There are a variety of ways in which people cope with anxiety, but no one cure that works the same way for everyone.

As humans, we like to know that we are supported, and what better way to do this than to reassure ourselves that others have been where we stand and have survived?
