I received an ecopy of this book in return for an honest review.

Jawbreaker: Unlocking the (U)niverse is a short but substantial read aimed at young adults and focused around the tools required to create your identity the way you want and/or need it to be. Divided into short chapters centred around a theme, the book covers a range of personal development concepts in easy-to-understand language, with the added benefit of suggested activities that can be dipped or delved into depending on how deep the reader wants to go.

I was initially slightly put off by the chirpy, cheerleader-style language of the initial chapter, but quickly got over this as it swiftly became apparent that the content of the book was both relevant to the target age, and easy to apply to one's personal circumstances. One of the notable things about the content was the author's repeated acknowledgement that personal growth takes time. This is an important concept to grasp for the intended audience and it was reassuring to know that the book was not touting the suggestions as a quick-fix, two-minute solution to a perfect life.

This book will greatly appeal to the target audience and in particular, young women who are ready to undertake some basic introspection regarding how they want to be in the world. ( )
