Life Sucks: How to Deal with the Way Life Is, Was, and Always Will Be Unfair
Life Sucks: How to Deal with the Way Life Is, Was, and Always Will Be Unfair | Sarah Bennett, Michael I Bennett
3 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
From New York Times best-selling authors Michael I. Bennett, MD and Sarah Bennett--a book for teens that shows readers that we all deal with crap in our lives and how to laugh at some of the things we can't control. Being a teenager can suck. Your friends can become enemies, and your enemies can become friends. Your family can drive you crazy. School and teachers can be a drag. Your body is constantly changing. And everyone seems to tell you to "just be you." But just who is that? With their open and honest approach, father-daughter team Michael I. Bennett and Sarah Bennett's book is sure to appeal to teenagers and show them they aren't alone in dealing with fake friends, with parents who think they're "hip," and even how high school isn't everyone's glory days. Young readers--and their parents--are sure to find this no-nonsense, real-life advice helpful, and it will help them realize that it's okay to talk to their parents and other advisors around them about big issues that might be uncomfortable to discuss.

Just finished! This was such a great look at life. There are no perfect answers here. Instead, the authors tell readers (teens) that life is going to suck sometimes. Instead of trying to give answers, the authors—one a psychiatrist, the other his daughter—walk through the suckiness and help readers understand how to work through it.

You guys! This book is so great for teens — parents of teens might find some good info here as well. I‘m on chapter two : School Sucks. Chapter one is Friendship Sucks.

The authors tell the un-sugarcoated truth and how to get through it; no promises of things working out like in a Hallmark gem. Hard truths with tools on how to make the most of it.

Starting this non-fiction read. While life is good for me right now, I know the teens I serve are having a rough go of things.
