Shine From Within; a teen girl’s guide to life” is such a wonderful, well rounded book for teens. I work closely with teens and I see it first hand – life and growing up can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be. This book is definitely something I would recommend every teenager read. It gives you tips, advice and courage to truly be confident in who you are!”

“Shine from Within is a beautiful book that every teenage girl should read. I have great concerns about the number of girls struggling and not realising that their uniqueness, quirks and differences are what actually makes them so wonderful and special.  Amanda shares openly from her own personal experience and provides countless ideas to support teenage girls. Importantly though she does not say that there is only one way to be happy and successful, she wants each girl to be herself and to find her passion from within…..and as far as I am concerned there could not be a more important message.”
