Life, the Universe and Awesomeness

Diary of a Brilliant Kid is the "tweenager's" atlas for navigating life. This interactive collection of stories, quotes, theories and yes, science, guides you through the difficult years between ages 8 and 12 to help you make sense of yourself and the world around you. Everything is changing! And that's okay! It's actually more than okay — it's exciting. These changes are the opening salvo of your gradual transition into "grownup," and it's the perfect time to define who you are, how you think and how you choose to face the world. Is it a lot? Yes. But this book can help you sort things out and come out the other side shining.

The journal format gives away the plot; Spoiler Alert: the Brilliant Kid is you. No matter how you feel, no matter what's happening in your head right now, you are not broken. You are a unique collection of talents and dreams and wants and surprises, and you have an entire lifetime ahead of you — aren't you curious to discover just how awesome life can be? This book takes you inside your own head, out into the world and everywhere your dreams may take you.
• Learn how to make the kinds of choices that make you feel alive
• Conquer the three R's of happiness: relationships, relationships and relationships
• Get a handle on today, tomorrow and what comes next
• Bounce back from the tough stuff, and discover the seven words that will change your life

There's a lot to learn, but one lesson is clear: never be afraid to shine. Stand up, stand out and be spectacular — whatever that means to you. Diary of a Brilliant Kid gives you the map and compass so you can start your own journey today.
