Review: As I was preparing for three major changes in my life; my daughter leaving for college, moving to a new state, and starting a new job, I was given the opportunity to review this audio book. It was just what I needed, a book that would help me become the person I needed to be in my new role and a message to give my now adult daughter. This book was the missing step for me to move from mom, wife, and teacher-librarian into a more grown up role of administrator. It helped me realize that it was okay to be this person. It was okay for me to achieve outside of my family and I deserved to be in my chosen profession and to be happy. When I finished this book I packed it up and gave it to my daughter to listen to at college. I think it has the words and message I wanted to say before sending her off in a world I was certain I had not fully prepared her for, which she refutes any time I give her advice. Ms. Dana Owens, aka Queen Latifah, thanks for the inspirational words of wisdom for my own benefit and that of my daughter. Well done.
