Good Selfie

(20 customer reviews)


I am absolutely STOKED to unveil the printed, hardcover version of my popular eBook for kids and teens, Good Selfie! I’m so proud of this book. It’s had such a huge impact as an eBook, and now it’s grown up into a stunning, punchy, weighty REAL LIFE book.



“Good Selfie is a fabulous book and an absolute must-read for every family. Like Turia, it’s practical and full of inspiration, wisdom, laughs … and a joyous optimism that is completely infectious.”
– Lisa Wilkinson, Co-Host, Channel Ten’s Sunday Project, Mum, Wife

It’s full of beautiful and funny illustrations by the incredible Freda Chiu and I just cant 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!

    I use Good selfie as as a teaching resource for my Year 11 VCAL Personal Development class, we have been reading your book Unmasked and i developed worksheets focus on resilience, empthy, mindfullness and positive thinking.
    My students are so inspired by your story and it really has made a positive impact on their learning.

    If you’ve got a teenager in your family or know of someone who does- you need to get them onto ‘Good Selfie’ an eBook with tips and tools for teens to nail life. I’ve read it myself and it’s bloody brilliant.

    These were my favourite nuggets of wisdom that I took away:
    – The way you talk to and about yourself has a massive impact on how you feel.
    – Don’t expect to be happy all the time. It’s not possible for any of us, and that’s OK.
    – You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with (this one was my favourite)!

    There’s heaps of stuff in there to help teens with goal setting and confidence, plus there’s a huge Q&A section with some really great content. It’s also a great resource for high school teachers.

    Turia speaks to kids in their language. My 9 year old absolutely loved this book. I really really recommend buying it – so much wisdom, inspiration and a big wallop of humour too. Thanks for sharing your story with us Turia- and the kids of the future.

    Good Selfie has been a fantastic resource to use in our High School setting for myself and fellow colleagues.
    Strengthening resilience and confidence within my students through goal setting, self talk and various self help strategies in my students has always been at the forefront of my wellbeing practice as a Year Adviser and using the extremely relevant scenarios and worksheets in ‘Good Selfie’ has assisted me greatly in delivering and working through these messages with students. I believe that the activities within the various chapters of ‘Good Selfie’ enable educators to begin to discuss and develop this skill within their students.

    The language, questions and tone of the book is fantastic for students as it is written at THEIR level and has been a highly engaging read for students I have used this with. Students love the various ‘hashtags’ and emojis used throughout as this is really where their headspace is in high school. Students have loved the various quotes and affirmations written throughout and we have used these around the school since the release of “Good Selfie’ to continue the fantastic messages that the book communicates.

    I’ve just purchased your ebook for my four teenagers to read (well one is 12 but in this day and age it’s like 14!)
    If my kids can all take just one but hopefully all your wonderful life lessons on board during their lifetime, then I’m a happy mum?.

    Hey Turia!
    I’ve finished your book! It was so inspirational and it really helped me boost by confidence. It has inspired me to never give up and smash goals. By the way my (faveo) favourite activites were the re-framing activities and the gratitude activities. Thanks so much for giving us this book and I will recommend it to all my friends! Love Chloe

  8. Erica

    I’m going to also get my 14 year old son to read your e-book your point on teens hit home.

    Thank you gorgeous soul.

  9. Elle, 9 years old

    Hi Turia, My favourite activities were re-framing and negative words and the good words. The book was amazing and really helped me kick some goals out the window. Thank you! from Elle

  10. Josh, 14 years old

    Reading Good Selfie made me realise that everyone goes through hard times and everyone has bad days – not just me. I really liked all Turia’s hacks and tricks to feel more confident too – they actually work.

  11. Tarnya Cook

    Good Selfie is amazing. I read this book knowing that Turia is full of wisdom and great advice. I’m sharing this book with both my 11 and 10 year old children as Turia is the kind of positive role model I want them looking up to. Her resilience, can do attitude and love of life shows through everything that she does and I want my children to have those same qualities. This is a book we can read together, talk about and take action on as a family and another way to bring us all together. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

  19. Belinda Gremmo

    I bought ‘The Good Selfie’ for my 12 and 10 year old girls earlier this year, thinking they may be a little young but knowing that the content would be useful in the years ahead. I was completely wrong, they devoured the content, made notes all through their books and were amazed with the illustrations and graphics. Congratulations on creating a resource that is a game changer for young people facing challenges large and small, offering them a way to navigate through life building resilience and grit.
