"This book rocks! Grab a copy now and tell all your friends"

—Sue Atkins, ITV Parenting Expert & Author of Parenting Made Easy – How To Raise Happy Children

Don't be a stereotype.

Start being the real, brilliant YOU!

Do you catch yourself saying that life's unfair? Or that you're a victim of having too much homework? Or that your teachers are picking on you for no reason? Or blaming your mum when you can't find your favourite shirt? Thought so!

Yes, you're a teenager and you're under massive pressure . . . School, friends, homework, exams, teachers, parents, relationships, looking good . . . you name it. But don't just sit there and grumble. How about getting motivated, energized and start making a difference instead? The Art of Being a Brilliant Teenager teaches you how to become your very best self – and how to figure out who that is, exactly. You'll find your way to becoming brilliant at school, work, and life in general.

Discover the real you, and what you want out of life
Stop moaning and get moving now, while there's plenty of time
Lose your bad habits before they become your personality
Figure out how you want to contribute, and find a way to do it
Don't let life just pass you by – it's time to start living better right now, so that when later comes along, it's guaranteed to be absolutely brilliant!
