YA Authors Share Advice for Their Teenage Selves
Nicola Yoon (Everything, Everything) wishes she’d known as an adolescent that “the answers don’t matter as much as the asking“; Rosalind Jana (Notes on Being Teenage) proclaims that “you are enough as you are”; and Patrick Ness (The Rest of Us Just Live Here) encourages teens to take a chance on love.
You are enough as you are. Enough, enough, enough. Continue being creative and curious. All that writing, reading, blogging, exploring, thinking, sketching – it’ll serve you well. — Rosalind Jana (BuzzFeed)
