This book talks about adolescence and how it can be difficult to get through it in one piece… It is meant neither as an instruction manual, nor as a medical health report; it does not offer a single vision of things nor does it tell you how to behave.
Instead, it is intended to encourage you to think about certain topics, generate food for thought, talk about your values and your points of reference, all by relying on different types of language, form cinema to literature, from music to first-hand accounts.
Let me grow up in peace! is designed as a kind of «navigational guide» — navigating through your adolescence — and in fact passes though various stages, which, like over the route of trip of a lifetime, deal with the small and great challenges you are facing; your changing body, love and sex, friendship, being responsible for your choices and gaining your independence.
In addition to stories, advice and in-depth analysis, you will find space to fill with your thoughts, in order to personalize it and make it into your very own «logbook».
