Notes on Being Teenage covers all aspects of teenhood ... the author is well-placed to offer advice and guidance o anyone navigating their teenage years. She is close enough to her teen years to understand how teens feel in today's world, so they will respond well to her advice * Parents In Touch * She consciously avoids the mistake of being too of the moment and her advice is timeless ... coming form one so near to teenage I hope it is more credible and listened to than when coming from the mouths of teachers and parents * School Librarian * 20-year-old student Rosalind Jana showcases realistic views and an indispensable look at modern life. -- Yasmin Flowers * Red * Ros speaks like a confident and worldly best friend, who doesn't just tell you what to do, but shares how she did it, too. That's so very generous. Reading her words is a comfort, and a joy. She's smart and educated, kind and bold - I'm so impressed by her. -- Laura Jane Williams The phrase "voice of a generation" gets bandied around a lot but Rosalind Jana is certainly someone who can lay claim to that epithet. Her voice is smart, warm, feminist and funny and and Notes of Teenage is a wonderful blend of anecdote, advice and insight; Rosalind is like the online older sister you wish you had when you were a teenager and it's the sort of book I would have loved to give to the teenagers I used to work with. -- Anna James Superstar blogger/writer/student/model Rosalind Jana is a favourite of mine and this non-fiction book, which "stretches from feminism to fashion to the pleasures and pitfalls of selfies", sounds like a must-read. -- Jim Dean * Teens on Moon Lane * I think Rosalind's book was amazing; it tackled appearance and loving the way you look phenomenally. [...] It was a fantastic read and I know it will be helpful for teens today; -- Humaira Kauser * Love Reading 4 Kids *
