Review

Written by Liam Hackett, CEO of anti-bullying charity Ditch the Label, Fearless! is billed as a ‘go-to guide for being your best self’, aimed at young people aged 10 to 16.

Getting that demographic to listen to advice from adults can be challenging, but Hackett does a great job of pitching his tone with a perfect blend of empathy and respect, urging readers to work out for themselves what kind of a person they are and want to be, then suggesting ways they can break free of stereotypes and labels in order to achieve their personal goals.

Interviews with inspirational people, such as body positive activists, disability campaigners and others who have defied gender stereotypes, it’s a feisty and focused handbook that could really help empower today’s teens to deal with prejudice, bullying and the myriad other pressures that come with living in our digital age.
