“Having been awkward as a teenager, suffering from low self esteem and really not happy about school life, ROC and Rise is just the sort of book that could have really helped when I so badly needed something.

It’s full of great ideas and practical tips. Plus Claire writes from the heart and I can feel her speaking to me from the pages. I found it easy to read, except that I kept wanting to stop to write notes and do the exercises.

ROC and Rise would be a great book to have as part of the school curriculum, as anything that we can do to support our young men and women of the future during these critical years is invaluable.”
