Review: Put On Your Crown by Queen Latifah

 Hardcover: 208 pages

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing; 1 edition (May 6, 2010)

ISBN-13: 978-0446555890

Modeled after Maria Shriver's Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah's goal with Put On Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem. A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown's assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the "Hollywood ideal" of what a confident beautiful woman should look like. The result: She's one of the biggest A-list celebrities in Hollywood. description taken from here.

This was very fun to read.  A book about empowerment, and aimed towards woman, this is a great read for any girl.  Life-changing moments that are shared have a way of relating to everyone, and this was no exception.  Queen Latifah did a great job with this book.  If anyone likes to read "real" stories about life, this is a great book to pick up!
