Coming In November 2018:

52 things I wish i could Have TOld Myself When I was 17

If you’ve ever wanted to go back in time and talk to your younger self—to give advice, to say what you wish you had known then that you know now, to promise that even when it gets bad, it will get better—then this book is for you.

If you are still young enough that most of life’s lessons stretch ahead in front of you, then save yourself a heap of trouble and read what’s on these pages. 

“Shuly Xóchitl Cawood opens her new book light-heartedly: with good advice on bangs. It’s not all fun and games though: she also counsels her younger self on more serious topics— love and faith and health and remembering that patience is sometimes required.”  —Courtney LeBlanc, author of The Violence Within 

Here are three more things to tell yourself at any age: 1. This book belongs in the hands of everyone turning 17—or even 57! You won’t find a better birthday gift. 2. Even if you don’t read it until you’re 57, it will still bring you tears, solace, and wisdom. 3. Here is a writer to follow closely: the beauty, delight and humor that emanates from her work will stay with you for a very long time.”  —Carla Sameth, author of One Day on the Gold Line: A Memoir
