SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
What would you do if your house were robbed—while you were in it? What would you do if you were kidnapped? Or if you needed brain surgery? In Seventeen’s Terrifying True Teen Stories, eleven teen girls share how they bravely handled life’s most tragic and frightening challenges. The details are crazy, but their stories are amazing!
MY TAKE:

During my magazine-obsessed years, one of my favorite magazine features where the articles in Seventeen magazine that were about real teen's experiences. If you've read one of those, then you know what to expect from this book.

Seventeen's Terrifying True Teen Stories is a compilation of stories from teen girls who faced amazing and scary experiences.

The story of the girl with the tattoo was particularly interesting to me because I'm pretty sure I've read her story before. If not that, then I've definitely seen her botched tattoo on the internet because it's pretty distinctive. If you've ever Googled tattoos, you might recognize her tattoo or something very similar.

The length of each story is roughly the length of a magazine article, so the book itself is quite short. The good thing about the articles, though, is that most of the articles have some tips on how to prevent or get through the same thing.

Thanks to NetGalley and Open Road Media for the e-ARC. Publication date of Seventeen's Terrifying True Teen Stories is on October 1, 2012.

THE GOOD:

  1. The stories cover a wide range of topics.
  2. There are prevention tips included for some of the stories.
  3. The stories are written in typical Seventeen style.

THE BAD:

  1. There are only eleven stories so it may seem short.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
After you get your tattoo, wash it with mild soap and water and avoid direct sunlight and hot baths until it heals.
READ IT IF:

  1. You like reading Seventeen magazine.
  2. You like reading about the experiences of other teenagers.
