You ever stumble across someone's diary and "accidentally" read a page or two? You get this one little snippet of their life. It could be boring, that they had soup for dinner - or it could be something serious, like they are clinically depressed - or it could be something silly, like they let their dog lick their toes because it tickles. That's kind of what this book is. It's someone sending out a secret of theirs into the world to be discovered, and maybe even published somewhere. The entire project has fascinated me from the beginning and I'm even more fascinated to watch what it has become. Don't miss this - or see a postcard or two for free at the website - postsecret.com
A most thoughtful read. This book has message after message, most from teenagers, about fears, life, emotions, experiences, and much more. It takes one back to those years when all of one's life was so important. Will I be loved? Drugs. Sex. Growing up. Friendship. Rape. Molesting. Ridicule. Death. Graduation. Success. Failure. So much to think about. I'm sharing my copy with the teenagers in my family.
