From the bestselling, award-winning author of You Are Awesome comes the much-anticipated follow-up, Dare to Be You. What would you dare to try if you stopped worrying about fitting in?

There's no point trying to change things ... then this book is for you. Because guess what? There's no such thing as normal. Drawing examples from sport, science and even business, Dare to Be You empowers young readers to follow their own path, love what makes them different and question the world around them.
