'This book should be on the shelf of every professional that works with teenagers in ANY setting. As lives become increasingly busy, emotional health andl literacy is often overlooked. In this text, Rae shows us how to create a dialogue with teenagers and reminds us that emotional health is an indicator of overall health as teenagers become adults'
