Click! teaches young readers to use positive energy and visualization strategies to achieve goals. Positive thinking results in positive energy. The writers cite scientific experiments to prove that thought vibes produce energy. Energy that will help you attain your goals.

The idea of positive thinking has been around for a long time, but these writers have written a book that will appeal to teens by using examples that they will get. They suggest creating a playlist of things you want. Thoughts (energy) are sent out into the world as e-vites. The world always RSVPs so you must be sure that the energy you send is positive if you hope to get positive answers.

To get the intended results you must focus. They explain the focus factor in the following way. 'What are your thoughts? What are you focusing on? The focus factor says this: You get what you focus on. By focusing on something and believing in it deep down to your core, your energy actually starts vibrating at its frequency.'

Usually when you want something you focus on not having it. These are negative thoughts. You are focusing on things you don't want. This is a habit you must break. These negative thoughts will get you more of the same.

The second half of the book is made up of examples of problems faced by teens and how to turn these problems into positives thoughts. A daily journal at the end of the book makes it easy for teens to get the hang of asking themselves the right questions and writing down what they want with a to-do list to help make it happen.

This user friendly book shares good points about positive thinking while including some problem solving advice for thorny situations. The ideas are accessible for teens and Monaghan and Wolfe never talk down to the reader.
