Cain, Susan Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, 254 pgs. $17.99 Content: G.
This nonfiction book explains the psychology of introverts and applies it to real life. Although introverts oftentimes get overlooked, especially as adolescents, this book helps kids and teens learn to take their comfortable and natural preference of being quiet and use it for good. The book gives practical solutions and ideas for teens to be successful with their quiet personalities. It also gives introverts permission to be who they are and let their voices be heard.
I think this book is fantastic and needs to be read by teachers and parents of introvert teens, as well as the teens themselves. There is so much power and confidence that this book can give a quiet student and the practical applicable advice is easy to apply to everyday. I wish this book would have been around when I was a teen. This is readable and interesting.
