--Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia

"Generation Sleepless is the crucial missing piece in the conversation about teen mental health. As a therapist and the mom of a teenager, I'm so grateful for every page of this book!
--Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone

"In Generation Sleepless, Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright provide an essential guide to supporting the key nutrient for the adolescent brain: sleep. I love this book because it provides a respectful, emotionally attuned, and practical roadmap to helping teenagers get the sleep their bodies and brains so desperately need. I highly encourage everyone who parents or works with teens to read and share this much needed resource!"
--Mona Delahooke, PhD, author of Beyond Behaviors and Brain-Body Parenting

--Terra Ziporyn Snider, PhD, Executive Director and cofounder of Start School Later, and coauthor of The New Harvard Guide to Women's Health

"Generation Sleepless exposes the myriad of factors that squeeze teen sleep, but more importantly, it gives us a practical framework with to-do's for society, as well as five easy-to-deploy habits for families that really make a difference."
--Dr. Michael Breus, author of The Power of When

"The American Academy of Pediatrics declared youth mental health a national emergency. Psychotherapists Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright say they know one reason why: teens today are sleep deprived."

"The secrets to getting teens the sleep they so desperately need."

"Teenagers have a reputation for being moody, making rash decisions, and maybe even being a bit lazy. Turns out, lack of sleep may be partly to blame for some of this stereotypical behavior."
--NPR's Science Friday

"Turgeon and Wright, authors of the bestseller, The Happy Sleeper, reveal just how wrong we've all been about teens and sleep.... We rearrange our entire lives to accommodate the sleep needs of our little ones but have essentially left our teens to fend for themselves.... Their new book discusses how to build healthy habits, advocate for change, and navigate the storm together with your teen through collaboration and communication."

"Today's adolescents are the most sleep-deprived population in human history, but parents and schools can help them get the rest they need."
--The Wall Street Journal
