A collection of 8 inspirational stories for teens, about teens, their families, their relationships, their challenges and their triumphs. Most of the characters in this book are real, except for their names and a few other details. Some live in the future, some have problems reading, some just moved to a new school and some struggle with domestic violence. They are normal kids with real challenges and inspiring solutions. Whether they are different, from the future, from a different country or have special circumstances, the characters of Be Special, Be Yourself for Teenagers, teenagers and adults, deal with the dilemma of giving up their significance to gain love. They struggle with body image, social acceptance, family relationships, school, diversity and inclusion. Invariably, it's their attitude that determines their fate. "Bojé's Magic Powder" is the story of Sam, who feels different and isolated because of her eating habits, while her classmates think she has an advantage. "Beauty Queen" is the story of Michelle, a beautiful girl with a secret, who must work out the priorities in her life and find her inner beauty. "Be Special, Be Yourself" is the story of Adam, who migrates to another country and tries to fit in, without giving up his values. "Curly Line with Flowers" is the story of Jessie, a dyslexic girl, who writes a diary of her brave struggle for acceptance. "The Building of Life" describes one class' attempt to create a perfect setup for a group of people living in a building, while coming to grips with some of the realities of their own life. "The Guidance Counselor" is the story of Tommie, who is physically abused and builds his inner strength to set himself free. "Love Me, Love Me Not" is a "chain story" about the desire that teenagers and adults have to be loved and things they will do to fulfill that desire. "Biography" is the story of Daniel, who finds out, with the help of a classmate, just how much he is loved by the people around him. The author says, "This book is a tribute to my heroes, teens and parents, teachers and friends, people I had met throughout my life, had been great inspiration to me and needed to be known. It is about teens who are juggling the need to be unique with the need to be loved and accepted by others and their wonderful ways to be true to themselves."
