One of my friends from my mom group recently published her own book…. I mean how cool is that?!
The author, Tabitha, or Tab as I call her, is a sweet person with a big heart. Unbeknownst to many people, myself included, we did not know that she struggled so much during her high school years. She has always been an anxious person, and her adolescent years weren’t the best for her. People who knew her in high school had no clue what she was experiencing on the inside.
Her book, Diary of a Lonely Prom Queen: Reflections on Parenting Teenage Girls from a Teenage Survivor, is from her perspective of high school. She was well known, homecoming queen, prom queen, and yet she felt like she didn’t have any true friends. In her book, she talks about anxiety and depression, how it affected her throughout high school, and how she got through it. She wanted to tell her story as a way to heal, but also more importantly to give a kind of reminder to be conscience of the issues faced growing up.
