The second PostSecret book, My Secret, focuses on the compelling and personal messages that have been sent in by college students from around the world. Raw and revealing, these secrets express the hopes, fears and wildest confessions of young people everywhere. 'This year, I overcame my fear of sleeping with the closet open. I'm 22;' 'People don't change ...They just find new ways to lie to you;' 'If I charged the people I babysit for by the scream, I'd be rich;' 'I'm a cheerleader, but secretly I deal drugs;' 'Every time I'm on the phone to my parents, I have to poop.' These are just a few of the confessions that move, amuse and make the reader think. Each confession is powerful piece of artwork that ensures My Secret is a completely fascinating and rewarding read.
