Becky Tomaszewski is a master's level therapist licensed in the state of Arizona. While working on her master's degree in counseling at Arizona State University, she worked at ASU in the Women in Science and Engineering Department and had the opportunity to work with high school as well as college age women interested in the math and sciences. That work provided a strong reminder of the peer pressure that goes along with being in high school. All throughout her career she has watched her nieces and nephews grow up at a distance (they are in Michigan). Becky would talk with her older sister about her oldest nephew entering high school and his routine of always checking his zipper and his nose before getting out of the car to head in to school. Hence the name of the book. This book had been developing in Becky's head for several years. When her oldest nephew was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, her outlook on life changed and she decided it was time to take a chance and put this book on paper. Becky continues to counsel people of all ages with all kinds of issues. She has found over the last few years of working in an employee assistance program setting that she really enjoys working with teens. Seeing them gain a better sense of self and some relief in being able to talk about life and peer pressure and just open up and have their world normalized, that is a big part of her joy and passion.
