It's My Life

YA ethics for a better world


About The Book

Every day you are faced with hundreds of decisions. Some will be momentous, remembered for the years to come; most will go unnoticed, by yourself and others. Yet each of these choices impact the person you will become. You are free to choose how to act – what you do, what you say, what you make. Why not help shape a better world along the way?
It’s My Life is your roadmap to making ethical decisions. Should you tell your best friend that her boyfriend was kissing another girl? Should you lie to your grandmother and tell her you’ll wear the jumper she knitted for you, even though it’s the ugliest jumper in the world? From underage drinking and youth mental health to speaking out on climate change policies, It’s My Life is an empowering guide to help you discover what is ‘good’, and what is ‘right’, from Australia’s leading authority on ethics, Simon Longstaff.
