Anxiety Sucks! A Teen Survival Guide Review

Story by Alex Samuels
Edited by Grace Talkington

Anxiety Sucks! A Teen Survival Guide by Natasha Daniels is a short book written to help teenagers cope and live with their anxiety. Natasha Daniels is a therapist who has helped hundreds of kids manage their anxiety, and she wanted to help more people so she wrote this book.
The book is intentionally only 85 pages because she said “It is meant to arm you with skills that you can use right away.” I think that it is very helpful because most kids nowadays don’t read or don’t like to read and having this book be short helps kids who may not have the time to read it. The book is straight to the point and it doesn’t sugarcoat what needs to be done.
The book is designed to help you fight your anxiety in a five step process that is outlined and explained throughout the chapters. It deals with accepting your anxiety all the way to being able to remove the thoughts that bring you anxiety.
The intended audience of this book are teenagers, but I would suggest that anybody struggling with anxiety should read it. The easy to pick up and bluntness of the book appeals to anyone who is sick of the tiptoeing around problems and wants the help. I would give this book a 3.5/5 stars due to the fact that it could be very helpful for kids with anxiety.
