For anyone wanting to prepare for the social-emotional challenges they have to look forward to in school or dealing with your insecurities that arise while finding your way in the world, as well as anyone who cares about young people (parents, educators, mentors, psychologists, social workers), FLAWD, is an energetic guide for seeing flaws as a doorway to something more. With dynamic advice from teens and celebrities around the world, FLAWD presents readers with steps for moving to self-acceptance and true authenticity. With renewed awareness, readers will learn they can be a light to the world, letting others know that instead of (flaw) shame, it's possible to feel compassion, instead of (flaw) embarrassment, it's possible to experience curiosity, instead of (flaw) limitation, it's possible to know freedom.
