Anxiety (Helping your teenager manage anxiety)

Do you have a teenager who struggles with anxiety? The latest book from award-winning graphic novelist, Raina Telgemeier, GUTS, tells a gentle yet accurate story about helping children cope with anxiety and panic attacks - it shows a child developing useful coping mechanisms for anxiety in a way that reassures, inspires and empowers readers.
Raina gets children. She literally mirror their feelings and shows them how to deal with each and every emotion, especially when it can feel like life and death.
Hilarious, relatable and comforting, the book is perfect for 13 - 18 year olds struggling with anxiety disorders.

A big hello and thank you for reading! Passionate about literature, psychology, and life I launched Book Therapy as an alternative form of therapy using the power of literature. I create reading lists/personalised book prescriptions based on your individual needs, this is my signature personalised reading service. If you’d like to self-prescribe literature you can learn the art of bibliotherapy through my online course Bibliotherapy, Literature and Mental Health. You can also check out Book Therapy’s other free reading lists and A- Z of book prescriptions (covering both fiction and non-fiction). These suggest books based on your existing life situation (e.g. anxiety, job change, relationship heartache) as well as interests (e.g memoir, historical fiction, non-fiction, crime etc). There’s also a Children’s A — Z of Book Prescriptions. Feel free to check out the blog for more literary gems. There’s also a post on my personal story of how I entered the world of bibliotherapy and book curation. And if you’d like to connect, email me at or
