Overview


Hailed as "411 for the Under-21" by People Magazine, STAY STRONG is equal parts advice and inspiration from Hollywood public relations pro Terrie Williams.

At the core of STAY STRONG is the idea that with the right attitude and strategies, kids can truly accomplish anything. And Terrie Williams is the ideal person to encourage and inspire. Her solid advice about ambition, goals and making real, personal connections speaks to readers without a hint of preaching. Urging them to stick to just a few simple but powerful rules -- tools that have successfully served Terrie's famous clients - Janet Jackson, Wesley Snipes, and Boyz II Men, for example. Terrie also lends insight into real teens' lives, and captivates with true rags-to-riches success stories. People will respect you if you respect them, she urges - as long as you can have that courage not to conform. As Terrie says at the closing of every conversation, above all else, "Stay Strong."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Provide[s] sage advice for cool kids, and in hip language too… Phat 411 for the under-21."
--People Magazine

"Drawing on her own success in public relations, the author gives straight-from-the-hip advice to teens on a range of topics…ethical situations, manners, and personal relationships. Stay Strong…provide[s] good, solid advice from someone who clearly cares about kids."
--Booklist

"Stong and positive… The author cares about her readers and hopes that she can help some of them make appropriate choices. The writing is direct and the format is bold and eye-catching… Stay Strong presents itself to a wider ethnic population. The overall message of being true to one's self is much needed and it can't be repeated too often."
--School Library Journal

    You Are Not Alone

    Stay Strong is an uplifting book for teenagers that allows teens to know that they are not alone. It brings to life the struggles of many famous movie stars, famous singers/songwriters, and other famous people out in the world's trials and tribulationsin their lives before they became famous. I recommend this boke to anyone who thinks that they are alone with what they go through in their lives
