I recently worked with a group that was dealing with self esteem issues. The book was right on time. I was able to use a chapter in order to inspire that girls to start thinking positively about themselves as well as being able to tell their peers positive things that they admire. Girls today spend too much time tearing each other down. The book is inspiration and the girls enjoyed hearing the chapter that we read for the session. My gift to them was a copy of the book.

Hill Harper takes readers on a journey from the very first page. The foreword is done by actress Gabrielle Union, and she makes valid points when pursuing your dreams and not allowing anyone to hold you back. She sets the tone for what is to come by many more aspiring, strong, beautiful women who gives advice on love, dating, pressure, makeup and other topics that may have been asked that Hill Harper could/wouldn't answer.

In his latest book, LETTERS TO A YOUNG SISTER, Harper answers to the other half of the population not spoken to in LETTERS TO A YOUNG BROTHER - young women. Though he was inspired by a comment from a young woman of color, this book reaches across cultural and racial differences to speak to young women about issues they face growing up.

The narrator, Hill Harper himself, is writing to a hypothetical "young sistah," a young sistah who could be any young woman. The way Harper addresses issues like drugs, relationships, family life, and future plans for this young sistah is informal and unpretentious because of the medium he's chosen. In responding to questions and concerns from this young sistah, it is not a forced conversation or one set up like a customary teacher/student. In the beginning, Harper even admits that he might not have all the answers, but if he doesn't, he'll find a woman friend, teacher, or mentor who does.

Harper includes real emails with questions from real girls around the country, a great addition. In this way, sistahs get to see what other sistahs are thinking, feeling, and worrying about. This feature was also a great way for Harper to reach out and include some very influential women's responses to these emails - real women talking about their experiences as young sistahs.

Definitely a great book that gives neccessary guidance to young women. Hill Harper did an amazing job with writing this book and chose great educators to help get his message across. This is a must read for all young sistahs.

This book helped me understand things alot better coming from a male's point of view I wished that I had a good life- changing book like this when I was coming of age, it would have helped me out tremendously. No matter if you are in your teens, tweens, twenties, thirties, or early forties, this book will open up your eyes to the way life really was, and how only you have the ultimate power to enrich your own life and make it better. Change is so evident and it is needed in order for our own growth and developement...

Hill provides great insight and counsel in a friendly "down to earth" manner. He doesn't sugar coat any of the topics and gives the hard core truth about relationships women develop over the course of their lives. This book is inspiring for all women and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain perspective in their life as well as a sense of direction.

It wasn't a great book but it wasn't bad either. I personally didnt like it, it was completely different from what i expected it to be. But if you have the patients for it, you might really enjoy it. I on the other hand was completely bored.
