Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-A handy book of inspiring quotations. Chapters highlight areas that touch young lives, e.g., "Family: Joy or Nightmare?," "Knowing Who I Am," "Staying Safe," "Money, Money, Money," "Hold Fast to Dreams," "Am I Looking Good?" Each section is introduced by a single quote and a black-and-white photo of a well-known individual such as Lauryn Hill, Danny Glover, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Malcolm X, or Oprah Winfrey. The more than 400 quotes have been garnered from successful athletes, writers, entrepreneurs, musicians, models, comics, civil rights activists, politicians, and educators. While citations for the quotes are not included, each contributor is briefly profiled in a biographical index. This compilation invites browsing and reflection.-Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
