Siobhan Curham has an important message for young people in her book – to work out who they are, and to be themselves. It’s backed up by a website http://www.truefacerevolution.co.uk and it’s obviously something she’s very passionate about.
The first part of the book encourages the reader to keep a journal, and Siobhan guides them through exercises to work out what they were like as children, and what they want to be right now, whilst turning the inner negative voice into a positive one.
After this, she looks at being yourself in various circumstances, such as dating, friendship, finding your style etc.
Whilst it’s aimed at young people, there are aspects within which any age group can make use of – although I would really like to see a version aimed at older readers, who may have very different types of negative aspects and experiences to overcome and turn around.
I’m not sure that many teenagers would fully engage in the journal aspect of the book, but it’s done in such as way that it’s not essential.. it’s quite possible to consider the aspects in your mind, although taking more time with it may help. Overall though, the messages within this book are so important, and I hope it makes its way into every school library – and I hope young people start to take notice!
