Publisher Comments:

Postsecret.com founder Frank Warren is back with a fresh and compelling companion to his wildly popular Los Angeles Times bestseller, PostSecret. For My Secret, a collectible, paper-over-board book that includes a page of vibrant, decorative stickers, Warren has personally selected never-before-seen anonymous postcards created by teens and college students from across the country. Each card bears an intimate and powerful secret—at turns inspirational, shocking, hilarious, and poetic—that is told through original illustrations, photographs, collages, and other creative means. Sample messages include:

  • "I am avoiding you because you are socially below me."
  • "I know the truth to the lie my parents tell... "
  • "My friends think I was homeschooled. I spent high school in juvi."

A unique and important book that will appeal to both young adults and their parents, My Secret offers a raw and revealing glimpse into the real lives of today's teens and twentysomethings. Choosing their own handmade postcards over email or text messages, teens and college students express their hopes, fears, and wildest confessions in a way that truly represents their diverse personalities and voices.

Synopsis:

From the creator of Wreck This Journal, comes an imaginative new project: fifty postcards that send you on a quest to reanimate everyday life.

Leave notes in public for strangers, dream up a tiny imaginary world, summon magic powers, draw a portrait of yourself as a hero, create your own treasure map, or access a secret portal whenever you wish.

Dont you just love getting something unexpected in the mail?

This book holds the key to what makes us all connected. Themes of shame, love, hope, desperation, joy, and so on are all mingled. The postcards show just how amazing our everyday lives can be.

This book is very intriguing, eye-opening, and it shows you that there are no boundaries and no more limits. You can let anything go through the power of your words and help others to confess or anything that may be weighing them down. I would recommend this book to anyone who is not ashamed to let go and anyone in general.
