							The journey to self-esteem is set in motion by an encounter with something we all have: a good flaw. And acceptance - just saying yes to the presence of a good flaw - is the way to cross into a world where wholeness, realness, and self-expression can put an end to bullying and combat negativity with positivity. For anyone wanting to prepare for the social-emotional challenges they have to look forward to in school or dealing with the insecurities that arise while finding your way in the world, Flawd is an energetic guide for seeing flaws as the doorway to something more. With dynamic advice from teens and celebrities around the world, Flawd is a perfect manifesto for readers looking to stop hate in the world.

“Recommended for teens and tweens who could use a confidence boost—so, almost all of them.” - School Library Journal (audio review)

"Her actions have had such an immediate and enormous impact on the world already.” - Lady Gaga

"The young Rigal brings a vibrant and lively energy to her prose and her narration as she guides listeners through a series of exercises and viewpoints to help youth conquer low self-esteem and feel comfortable with their flaws. Her passion and excitement come through with every sentence, and it's clear she's doing more than reading--she's injecting her heart into each word." - AudioFile

Starred review. "Rigal, founder and director of the anti­bullying organization WeStopHate.org, has a passion for helping others develop self-confidence. This work, directed primarily at teenagers, prods readers to gain perspective, assess how they look at things, and play with abandon. Rigal sprinkles her text with self-examination questions, the experiences of others, and sketches to present a lighthearted view of the important ability to embrace oneself. ­A must-read for most teenagers and highly recommended purchase for YA collections." - Library Journal
