Day’s YA – CHOOSE WONDER OVER WORRY

Hello again YA librarians!

Welcome to the 10th edition of Day’s YA! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been craving uplifting and inspiring books lately to get me through these last weeks of winter. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love winter—I really do—but even I look forward to spring come mid-March. And this book is the perfect remedy for anyone with a case of the winter blues.

CHOOSE WONDER OVER WORRY by Amber Rae
9781250175250
Available May 15, 2018 from Wednesday Books
Also available in audio and read by the author

“Wonder is what we’re born with. Worry is what we learn.”

In this semi-autobiographical guidebook-to-life, Amber Rae uses a combination of short stories, self-help tips, and prompted journal pages to help her readers push past their fears and realize the amazing things they are capable of. With chapters on self-doubt, procrastination, envy, imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and a whole host of other relevant topics, each short chapter includes a topical anecdote from the author’s life, helpful tips, and a page for journaling, mapping, or doodling. readmoreremove
