About the Author

Tricia Mangan has a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Stony Brook University. She has more than 10 years of diverse clinical, research, and teaching experience. With a background rooted in cognitive-behavioral and positive psychology principles, Tricia is a proponent of a holistic approach to health and is currently focusing her efforts on writing books to educate children and teens on the mind-body connection.


Avoiding preachiness and gimmickry, Mangan aims to give teens tools to take happiness into their own hands. Suggestions for finding solace include avoiding comparing oneself to others, tackling procrastination, focusing on the positive, and accepting both the power and limits of one's control. Each section offers various steps, activities, and goals (for example, Mangan advises finding a good fictional role model as a way to learn about becoming more assertive in real life). The tips are straightforward, and readers should feel empowered to know that solutions may be within their grasp." -Publishers Weeklybr>
"With ten-plus years of clinical, research, and teaching experience, Mangan knows how to help teens feel less overwhelmed with daily challenges and changes. Each tip has self-reflection questions, activities, and easy-to-use strategies to put into action when problems arise." -Portland Book Review

"All topics are discussed in a positive way, with the goal of taking action over feeling defeated or frustrated. Due to its easy-to-use format, it is a great, quick go-to reference book. This book is a necessity for teens who are facing bouts of insecurity. Its positive message and mind-healthy exercises will serve as an inspiration when things are tough." -VOYA

"Unhappy teens in need of a lecture on thinking positively and being more in touch with one's emotions need look no further."-Kirkus Reviews
