GETTING REAL... about growing up!

Anecdotes and stories in 'TeenSpeak' make 'GETTING REAL... about growing up!' accesible, enriching and uplifting.  Read some excerpts from teenagers in the book here.

GETTING REAL... about growing up! has been produced with the environment in mind on sugar cane paper using soy based inks.


"I gave this book to a friend of mine. She was having trouble with her teenage daughters. She looked at me as if I were mad. They don't read books! she exclaimed. I insisted that she give it a try.

I chuckled when I heard her report the next day. She gave the book to her daughters. Their response was - What would SHE know- she's not a teenager. The book was left on the coffee table. Whilst making dinner she listened to giggles, chuckles and exclamations as her daughters poured over the book. That evening, for the first time in months the TV did not go on!!!
My friend told me she was absolutely amazed. I wasn't. Needless to say, she bought her own copy."


"My son has been on antidepressants for years. It's heartbreaking to see what has happened to him. A friend of mine gave me a loan of the book. He insisted I let my son have a look at it. I was doubtful the Peter would even bother to open it.
I can't tell you how surprised I was when three days later he was still reading it. What more can I say."

John a father
This is an amazing book! It speaks hauntingly to the teenager inside every adult. It helped me to the bridge gaps between me and my own parents. It also alerted me to the ones that had begun to grow between me, as a parent and my own teenagers. This book can help everyone make sense of the Journey.
David, a father

As a parent and a survivor of child abuse, I'd like to thank you. You've hit the nail on the head. GETTING REAL... about growing up! is written in a language that teenagers can relate to and understand. It's the most positive piece of work for young people that I've read.

This book has helped my daughter to believe what has happened to her and to come to terms with her experience of sexual abuse... and a lot more.
Sharon, a mother

This book is masterful. It's so full of life it jumps out at you.
Frank Cordell, USA


This is an excellent guide-book for teenagers or parents trying to have a better understanding of their young adults. It creates an awareness of the problems teenagers are inevitably going to be faced with, at the same time it offers solutions to these problems.

When I was fifteen, I got depression and anxiety attacks. Life felt so strange and scary. I needed help. I have come through the other side and I believe this book offers guidance to young people who may be struggling for understanding about their lives.
