Because wherever I sat, on the deck of a ship or at a street café in Paris or Bangkok, I would be sitting under the same glass bell jar, stewing in my own sour air. Readers who are familiar with Sylvia Plath's work may recognize this well-known quotation from her first and only novel, The Bell Jar, which tackles issues of depression, mental illness, and the search for individuality. This compelling volume examines Sylvia Plath's life and writings, with a specific look at key ideas related to The Bell Jar. A collection of twenty-three essays offers readers context and insight to discussions centering around the pervasive impact of illness, the novel as a search for personal identity, and the autobiographical nature of the work. The book also examines contemporary perspectives on depression, such as the sometimes deadly pressure of perfectionism on gifted teens, and the idea that depression and risk of suicide run in families.

Teen depression is on the rise in North America. According to the statistics, one teen in every high school classroom is probably suffering from a major depression. These teens come from all social, economic and cultural backgrounds - from anyone's family or community. Parents often agonize over this problem, but do nothing, hoping for the best and allowing the teenager time and space to work out his or her own problems. They try to give extra love, support and attention, but they can't help worrying. Dr. Miriam Kaufman gives the concerned parent a thorough overview of the most up-to-date medical knowledge. Drawing on her own experience and that of other doctors and psychologists who work with teenagers, and offering many illustrative case histories, the author explains what teen depression is and how it can be overcome. Medical and psychiatric conditions, gender and sexuality differences, substance abuse, anxiety, poverty and suicide, as well as the social and practical aspects of life with a depressed teen are discussed. Medical approaches, including therapy and drug treatment, are covered in detail. An entire chapter is dedicated to alternative treatments. And in a broad-ranging question-and-answer section, Dr. Kaufman addresses many of the specific concerns of parents, and of teenagers themselves. This comprehensive look at teen depression is sure to be helpful not only to teens and parents, but to teachers, guidance counselors and all those who work with adolescents.

Far From Simple: Life After Being “Not Your Average Teen” written by 20 year old Canadian author, Brittany Krystantos, recalls the ever-so common high school struggles with self identity, friendships and lack-thereof, popularity and stereotypes, and continues into young adulthood consisting of the terrible tinder dates including the time her date told her they'd have cute babies on their first date... run, oh yes! Britt shares with us her awful attempt at friends-with-benefits or should we say FWB, and heartbreak from the time her boyfriend broke up with her over text. Maybe, the heart healed from eating the entire jar of chocolate ice cream or maybe not; but it sure felt better in the moment. In this narrative nonfiction, she describes that "kind of girl" that is within all of us: ambitious, different, free spirited, wild, adventurous, yet innocent at the heart of things. She has gone through pain and hardship and dug her way out of the darkness to become enlightened by her soul’s calling; a life purpose to be different, and far from simple. 20 years of life, what up!
