My Take on the Book
This is a great book that brings in quotes from famous and not so famous women that have done something with their life. This book really allows any girl or woman to get inspired from the words and actions of these people. I gave this book to my oldest daughter who has just entered high school. My hope is that it will inspire her to make the most of high school and her life beyond. When I gave this to her I was impressed to see that she started reading it right away. She even started showing the book to some of her friends, which is definitely a sign that it has made an impact. My daughter loves to find quotes that are meaningful to her and she found many in this book. This is the type of book you can give as a gift and it keeps on giving!
