Student Edition (65 pages, including resources)
Jam-packed days and meticulous planning help 16-year-old Amie stay organized and pursue her goals. They also help her forget that her parents treat her like she's made of glass, and that her boyfriend worries about her. They help her forget the dark years of medications and diagnoses that led her to the hospital, and they help her ignore the negative thoughts that continue to darken the corners of her mind. With the help of her therapist, her family, and her boyfriend, Amie is learning that there's no shame in continuing to struggle, that relying on the support of loved ones doesn't make her a burden, and that a sense of hope and purpose can help her cope with negative thoughts.
