If you could send a letter to yourself aged 16, what would you write in it?


Dear Me

is a collection of just such letters written by 75 of the world's best-loved personalities to their younger selves and published with photographs of them as teenagers.

Dear Me

has a foreword by JK Rowling, and celebrity contributors including Hugh Jackman, Kathleen Turner, James Franco, Jodi Picoult, Stephen King and John Waters.

Dear Me

is for the teenager wondering what life is all about, someone looking back to their youth, or seeking homespun wisdom, or just a chance to meet some of your favourite stars… before they were famous.
