Help Jen Give Away 1000 Encouraging Books to Teens

Hi, my name is Jen.

Growing up, I often struggled with shyness and a lack of confidence. While I still experience these feelings at times, I have learned some amazing ways to shift my mindset and stay positive and happy.

This empowering book is filled with activities and games to help pre-teens and teens boost their confidence and happiness. The book is designed to be fun and engaging which isn't always the case with youth self-improvement books that are currently on the shelf.

Skip the Bad Songs is the book teens have been waiting for! Please help me bring this book to life and put it in the hands of as many anxious, stressed teens as we can.


Quote from 13-year-old teen:
When a problem faces me as a teen, my first reaction is to let it swallow me whole.
Whether it's about grades, friends, or something you look forward to not going the way you wanted, we all face these problems.

This is where your book shines!
Teens like me will be able to build confidence, even if it starts with just standing tall and putting a smile on someone's face.

It also has a fun aspect!
Choosing to go anywhere in the book based on your interest or flipping to a random page to see what activity you'll be doing that day.


Your donation will be used to help print 1,000 copies of the book which in turn will be GIFTED FOR FREE, to tweens and teens who request them and to those who are associated with youth-focused non-profits.

By donating to our project, you'll not only be supporting an independent artist and author, but you'll also be investing in your own well-being and the well-being of young teens. Join us on this journey to skip the bad songs and find the things that make life worth living.

Now is the time for this book to be in the hands of our youth. Please help, no donation is too small.

I need to pay for the printing by April 10th!

Thank you,
Jen Landis
