VOYA
This latest book joins an eight-book series that explores girl power and helps girls grow into the women they will become. This installment's content ranges from travel inspiration to packing lists and how to ease back into life once home. Paul advises would-be travelers that not everything needed on vacations can be packed, such as spontaneity, practicality, and determination. There is also a section on safety and the dangers of a female traveling alone abroad. Pictures, quotes, anecdotes, and bolded important messages break up the pages. The font is small, but the messages are concise and filled with both common sense and useful tips and ideas. Lists also break up the text, ranging from what to pack to simple must-learn phrases for traveling in any country to different cultural customs. The back of the book contains various Web sites for additional information. Paul also includes a mini address book, a currency exchange table, and a trip planner/itinerary to coordinate and document any journey. With all the information in the book, readers can pick and choose the pieces to read as needed. Colorful and vibrant pictures splash across the pages making it an inviting read.
