Did you keep a diary during your teen years? Do you have a box of loopy-cursive, never-sent notes to your crush? Or some overwrought poetry about your bleak existence? An unfinished rockopera? Well, you're not alone, and in "Cringe," you'll find a reason to unearth your adolescent angst and have a good laugh--at yourself. A compilation of real teenage diary and journal ent Did you keep a diary during your teen years? Do you have a box of loopy-cursive, never-sent notes to your crush? Or some overwrought poetry about your bleak existence? An unfinished rockopera? Well, you're not alone, and in "Cringe," you'll find a reason to unearth your adolescent angst and have a good laugh--at yourself. A compilation of real teenage diary and journal entries, letters, songs, stories, and lists--along with biting commentary, background, and self-examination from the now so-called grown-ups who wrote them--"Cringe" offers a voyeuristic glimpse at the roller coaster of youth in all of its navel-gazing, soul-searching, social-skewering glory. Cringe -worthy excerpts include Really bad poetry: I lumber like the sad clown with the hope that my performance might make you smile. Yet I am a flickering star over a cloudy sky. Blush-inducing pep talks: OK. It's the end of February. No more kidding around! You have to go out with someone! You haven't gone out with someone since the summer! At least fool around with someone! Come on! You've got it in ya! Questionable motivations: My mom is madly in love with her boyfriend. . . . Cool! He's so rich . . . I could get a lot out of this-- vacations, a car--if he buys my mom one + she gives me hers--psyche! And rages against the world at large: I am living in a dream world. Wishes are a bunch of crap. They never come true so what's the use of even wasting your time hoping they'll come true when they don't? Inspired by the New York-based reading series of the same name, "Cringe" will help you realize that being a grown-up isn't all that terrible. At least you don't have to worry about who's going to be at the mall anymore.

    This made me laugh. Makes me think maybe I wasn't the only one who was nuts when I was a teenager. The only bit I didn't really enjoy was the poetry. I have written lots of bad poetry over the years and I don't even like reading my own let alone someone else. Mostly this book made me remember old times at school. I tired to look for my diary but I can't find it which is a tad worrying :/ I still live at home and when I wanted to write down my feelings I sometimes wrote over my wall. So I can cr This made me laugh. Makes me think maybe I wasn't the only one who was nuts when I was a teenager. The only bit I didn't really enjoy was the poetry. I have written lots of bad poetry over the years and I don't even like reading my own let alone someone else. Mostly this book made me remember old times at school. I tired to look for my diary but I can't find it which is a tad worrying :/ I still live at home and when I wanted to write down my feelings I sometimes wrote over my wall. So I can cringe over what I wrote everyday. You can tell from these writings that I wanted to kill myself and everybody else. Ahhh! Since I had to read something nostalgic after reading this and my diary is missing presumed dead, I had to go for the letters my friends used to write me. I'm not sure what I was writing to them but apprently I must have been intrested in different types of pens and fonts as they are mentioned in a few letters(Gel and smelly pens were big at my school). We also seem to have dated or fancied the same guys at some point but that doesn't seem to be much of a problem. The best quote I came across tho was this... "U no Hana b, da lezzy she h8's u n she dnt like me hangin out wiv u coz she finkz dat yr a pikey!!. I told er dat I like bein yr frend n in my head least she aint a lezzy." I have no idea who Hana b is or why she thinks I'm a pikey. It's ironic that both me and this girl seem to dislike lesbians at this stage since we both had girlfriends in later life lol. Sorry I've gone off the topic of the book abit but I think everyone who reads this should share a little bit of teenage wisdom with us. If you've ever kept a diray, written a silly letter to a friend or poured your heart out in a poem then this book is for you.

    If you ever thought teenagers back then are less annoying than now, you couldn't be more wrong. This book puts into perspective that no matter what year you're born in, once your body starts releasing teenagery-related hormones, we're all in the same boat. I didn't particularly enjoy this book, but I think this would be great for "those" kinds of adults who seems to forget they were teenagers once.

    I will be honest with you I gave up on this book halfway through due to an on going list of 'to-read' books but that doesn't mean I disapprove of this book. I loved the fact that this book was reflections of different peoples teenage diaries and the advice they would give to their teenage self. This book is a clear reminder that the small things we stress about as teenagers, will matter no more as we mature and our best intentions for ourselves will grow as we do.

    I didn't know why I actually bought this book. Probably the worst book I read this year. I had high expectation on this book but... Ugh Life of Asian kids are so different with Western kids/teenagers. I'm jealous sometimes.
