Between the lines of my teenage diaries.
Bullies, group work, and friends who speak louder than anxiety.
Moving house, confronting bullies, and crushes that return.
Things (and people) we fear.
Negotiating the need for affirmation.
“I’m ashamed that I’m not truly comfortable in my own skin.”
Two-tone, gradient, and glossy lipstick looks.
Being in the minority is hard, but you’re not alone.
Give us a break from bullies, extracurriculars, and mood swings.
On a plane to Turkey. And welcoming our new diarist Fatma!
