About the Author:

Melissa Daly is a former senior staff writer at Seventeen Magazine, where she wrote articles and columns on health, sexuality, relationships, and other topics of interest to teenagers. She is currently an editor at Fitness Magazine. Claude Clement is the author of several books for young people, published in her native France. She works on overcoming her own shyness, and hopes that this book will help others do the same.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7–Clement offers a brief overview of how heredity, adolescence, and upbringing can affect shyness. Suggested remedies range from taking up hobbies to therapy and even medication, if the social anxiety is unbearable. The voices of shy teens speaking for themselves are missing, and the authors come across as the sole knowledge-holders. The blushing cartoons add a bit of lightheartedness, but are not representative of the real world. There is minimal discussion of the role shyness plays with the physically disabled. While its admirable that the authors indicate that almost everyone is touched by this condition, the effect is diluted rather than helpful and sounds more like parental advice.–Kelly Czarnecki, Bloomington Public Library, IL
