Dear Teen Me with Jenny Torres Sanchez
On May 22nd debut author Jenny Torres Sanchez releases her first book, The Downside of Being Charlie. Fridays in May we are introducing you to Jenny and her main character, Charlie. Today Jenny shares with you her experience as part of the Dear Teen Me project. Be sure to check out the Dear Teen Me project at their website and check out the anthology coming to your library in Fall 2012. As a fun writing assignment flip the premise and have your teens write a “Dear Adult Me” letter. Make sure they save them until they are adults, it would be interesting to see what they think about them later. (Dear Teen Me published by Zest Books October 30, 2012)
