Expat-Teens-Talk-300Expat Teens Talk (Summertime, 2011), by Dr Lisa Pittman and Diana Smit, recognises the challenges that teens are faced with when growing up as Expats, and is a must read for Expat Teens, Expat Parents, and Expat Professionals. And, judging from this recent review, it seems the book has appeal for non-expat teens too. 

The teen writes: “I am not an expat teen but I am someone who moved around a lot as a child and a teen and as such I can relate to many of the stories written in this book. The inherent difficulties of being a teenager weave through these stories spoken in the first person by the teenagers themselves. In our global village and with the traditional nuclear family dynamic being the exception rather than the norm, the ways to develop and maintain lasting relationships and the sense of having a ‘home’ are two clear themes that we all, as human beings, struggle with – whether we grow up in one house, one country or move constantly around the world … [This book] is a wonderful resource for all teenagers – particularly expat teens, their parents and the professionals they encounter and fills a deep void in literature in this area.”
