Overview

Demi Lovato wakes up each morning and affirms her commitment to herself—to her health, her happiness, her being. Those commitments are the bedrock of her recovery and her work helping other young people dealing with the issues she lives with every single day.

Demi is a platinum-selling recording artist whose latest album—DEMI—is already a smash hit. She's about to embark on her second season as a judge on X-Factor, and just launched The Lovato Treatment Scholarship Program. And she is an outspoken advocate for young people everywhere.

Demi is also a young woman finding her way in the world. She has dealt deftly with her struggles in the face of public scrutiny, and she has always relied, not just on friends and family, but daily affirmations of her self-worth and value. Affirmations that steady her days and strengthen her resolve.

Those affirmations have grown into STAYING STRONG, a powerful 365-day collection of Demi's most powerful, honest, and hopeful insights. Each day will provide the readers with a quote, a personal reflection and a goal.

These are Demi's words. Words she lives by and shares with the people she loves and total strangers alike. They are a powerful testament to a young woman standing up and fighting back.

From the Publisher

"With an affirmation and inspirational quote for every single day of the year, you can not only channel Demi's spirit, but get an idea of just what is is that's helped her turn things around. It's kind of like a window into her mind and whether you read it cover to cover or dip in and out, there's no question that you'll come away from it with a smile on your face and something to think about."—Sugarscape

Read an Excerpt



January 5

There are so many beautiful, talented souls in this world. Don’t let anything stand in the way of your potential.

I’ve encountered so many people in my life who tell me that I can’t do something. Those people are just testing you and you can’t let them bring you down. True friends will lift you up and believe in you. Don’t allow anyone to tell you you can’t live your dream because if you don’t believe in yourself then nobody else will.

Goal: Think about one thing you’ve been holding back on doing and start doing it today. Be fearless.

Meet the Author

Twenty-one-year-old Demi Lovato's fame began when she was cast on Barney and Friends. From the outside, she was all smiles, but as she grew up in front of the camera—the star of the record-breaking Camp Rock franchise; leading lady of her own Disney show, Sonny with a Chance; and a budding music career—she was falling apart. As Demi entered adolescence, she was being bullied, and she struggled with bulimia, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse, and eventually secretly began cutting herself.

Her career was taking off, but she bowed out of her world-wide tour and checked herself into rehab, which she successfully completed. She started the Lovato Treatment Scholarship program to help others with their illnesses.

She's currently entering her second season as an X-Factor judge and her latest album Demi has gone platinum. She will also be joining the fifth season of Glee. Demi has many accolades, including one MTV Video Music Award, twenty-five Teen Choice Awards nominations, 14 of which she has won, four People's Choice Awards, one ALMA award, a Billboard Touring Award and several others.

Outside of her work in the entertainment industry, Lovato is involved in philanthropic activity through charity work and various social and environmental causes. In May 2013 she was awarded for her dedication as a mentor to teens and young adults with mental health challenges at a National Children's Mental Health Awareness day hosted by SAMHSA in Washington.

I enjoyed every part of this book and plan to use it in my daily life and challenges. It is honestly amazing how she relates with the reader and knows how to motivate them. I plan to follow jer throughout her journey, since she has helped me with mine.

It's a suprising good book. Most of  books that are made by celebrities ,aren't that good. The fact that it is a self help book gives it points, because she tells her story indirectly and the advices that she gives can apply in more situations. Celebrities' biografy books made by themselves usually  hide things and make others more "beautiful"  than they truly are. Great job for someone who is 21 years old  and for first book.  She  is  wiser than  the most of the people in her age. She  proves that the difficult times in your life  can make you stronger and wiser. We learn by our mistake. It isn't important if you fell , it s important if you stand up .and she stood up. Congrats Demi!

This book isn't just for Demi Lovato fans are people going through a particular crisis. This book is a daily does of inspiration. The great thing about it is, you can read the reading for the day and it will relate to you somehow, no matter who you are or what your life is like. This is also true for looking back at old readings. You can go back to last month's reading and get something completely different out of it then you did the first time. I definitely recommend this book for people of all ages.

Demi Lovato. She is my idol, my inspiration, and my hero. She saved me from committing suicide. When I was about to do it, her song Warrior came on my Pandora and it made me realize that suicide is just letting them win over me. So for that, thank you Demi Lovato. I will be FOREVER grateful. ¿

I was not expecting this book to be any literary masterpiece, and it's not. But what it is, is a book filled with inspiring and memorable quotes from other great people and from Demi Lovato herself. It tells her story in bits and pieces intertwining quotes and goals for each day of the year. If you are like me, and like books that will uplift you and potentially get you through a hard time in life, this is the book for you.

I was very excited to find out that Demi Lovato. I had been a fan of hers since Camp Rock 1 and knowing all she had been through I knew this would be a good book. Unfortunately I was wrong.... This is an AMAZING book. This is not just a book for Demi fans. This is a book for ANYONE and EVERYONE! The advice in this book can help you if you are 16 or 116.  When I checked out I was happy to hear that this book has been flying off the shelves! Way to go Demi!

This book by Demi Lavato is just so amazing. It's filled with inspirational quotes that Demi held onto and dwelled on while she was going through tough times herself. The quotes in this book and Demi's response to each quote is so uplifting and encouraging. They're definitely helping me right now... Guaranteed to give you some hope with whatever struggles you're facing in life. :) Thank you, Demi! <3
