I absolutely love this 'feel good' collection of quotes, stories and facts about and by successful females. Just reading it makes me feel as if I can achieve success at anything, with hard work and the right attitude! I can't imagine a better, more inspiring and uplifting, gift for any girl.

. . .A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping- stone to greatness,' says Oprah Winfrey. That quote alone has me hooked to this book; and it's only one of the many phenomenal others in this great page turner. Page after page of the book is filled with inspiration and great words to live by and selections from the coolest females around. I would recommend this book for any age. From the first to the last page, the lessons shared are a great addition to helping girls figure out how to strive for greatness no matter who they are or how they see themselves. If you decide to read this great book, you might want to also try one of the other four in the collection for fun. The other titles are: The Girls' Book of Wisdom, The Girls' Book of Love, The Girls' Book of Friendship, and The Girls' Guide to Life. So get over to your local bookstore, library, or online to get your copy!
