If you have a teenage artist in your life, you might like to aim him or her in the direction of a forthcoming book of mine called Why Smart Teens Hurt. This is a sequel to a popular book I did a few years back called Why Smart People Hurt and addresses the special challenges of smart, sensitive, creative teens. It speaks to subjects that rarely get aired and might prove quite valuable to a teen who is struggling on many fronts, with the current state of the world, the pandemic, isolation, social media, anxiety, despair, and, on top of all of that, his or her creative needs. I think that Why Smart Teens Hurt can help. I hope you’ll take a look.
