"All the feelings you’re writing about on those lined pages—all the things that make you feel different and ugly and alone sometimes—you’re going to use them one day to write a book with your best friend, for other people who feel different and ugly and alone sometimes, too."

Be sure to check out the authors' websites, Twitters, and Wattpads!
CHALLENGE: Write a letter to your FUTURE self! If you dedicate it back to this account, I'll add it to a public reading list, so we can have all the Dear Future Me letters in one place!
