Reviews and Accolades

Popular Children’s Bestseller

“Written in an accessible, no-nonsense style and filled with anecdotes, this book is full of practical advice about everyday problems that anyone aged 13—or 30, for that matter—will find useful.”
– The Straits Times

“Finally, a guide for youths to navigate the tumultuous jungles of teenage-dom… also a useful tool for teachers and parents to understand today’s teens and their world.”
– Glenn Lim, Singapore Youth Award winner

“I could easily connect with the author. Being a teenager is never easy and thankfully, the book provides handy advice and survival tips. I particularly love how this book encourages its readers to do serious self reflections and trust me, I was glued to this book till its very last word.”

“Andrew’s indefatigable positivity and compassion for students shine through.”
– Adina Glickman, Center for Teaching and Learning, Stanford University

“With the typical young person’s impatience and short attention span, this 152 – page book is just about right in length. The tone is friendly: Author Andrew Tan stresses he’s no expert in life but just wants to share his experience and the lessons he learnt as a teenager. So he comes across as a wise, older brother offering suggestions – not solutions – to quintessential “student” issues including family, friends and BGRs (boy-girl-relationships). Reading this as an adult reminds me of the joys and pains of growing up – a useful guide for anyone dealing with the young.”
– Lifestyle Magazine

“Andrew pours candid yet practical advice to teenagers of all ages.”
– Teenage
