Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE Empowering book I have been searching high and low for an empowering book for a 12 yr old young lady who has been through so much. Throughout all my search I have only found books that revolve around boyfriends, beauty, popularity, instead of something that focuses on empowering the female themselves from within. With a base line of personal empowerment set into place, a young lady is able to deal with all types of influences/situations that happen in everyday life. I read this book, and it is absolutely a MUST for all young ladies (boys are also welcome to read it to). The chapters start with a one page introduction on topics such as Family, Health, Friendship, Bravery, Confidence, Goals etc Then the following few pages will have over 400 empowering quotes, all by females who are of influence (from Maya Angelou to Susan Surandon) These quotes really make you think deeper, and help to you apply it to real life situations. Witty, humorous and not to complex. This is also excellent for teens sharing their opinions with their mothers/aunts or friends (bonding experience). Times have changed, and this book is a great tool for all pre-teens and teens. Personally, I wish this book had been around when I was going through all these changes. Its a very optimistic book, great to keep by your bedside and flip through. Excellent gift!
