Have you seen my book Good Selfie?

Good Selfie is a bestselling book that I wrote for kids and teens.

It’s full of beautiful and funny illustrations by the incredible Freda Chiu and I just can’t wait for you to read it!

So what’s the book about?

Well, it’s filled with answers to all the questions I get asked most, plus stacks of tips and tools to help teens:

  • build self-confidence and self-belief
  • get through hard times
  • re-frame the way you see your life and your challenges
  • set and get big goals
  • create a kick-ass support crew

It’s basically a teen’s guide to a resilient mindset and a kick-ass life!
