I was impressed with this book, it made me think again about the decisions I made. I like how the author provides a journal at the end of each chapter, giving me ideas for journal writing and decisions that I want to achieve in the future. Very motivating! I highly recommend teenagers to read this book, this book will really help them deal with the age transition from youth to adulthood. With a simple decision like volunteering at the park on Saturday morning, it also has a good impact on our life habits. I was reminded of my desire to join the volunteer program too. 

The part that I like the most is "Your Age is Your Super Power". Right, after passing the age of 1/4 century I feel that time will pass soon. My current youth is my super power. So I have to make good use of it. Thank you Jess Ekstrom for writing a beautiful book, and also illustrator Nadia Fisher for making this book more colorful.

Thank you NetGalley and Publisher for accepting me to read and review this beautiful book.

This is a great book to motivate and guide someone to achieve a dream. I really like the pages with sayings that can be colored enforce the thought. The journaling and listing ideas are positive and motivational. This book is a great book to get children off the phones and iPads and bring out their creative side and become ambitious. The stories are very heart warming and inspiring.

I am a client of Jess Ekstrom through I was aware of her book for adults. I picked up her book for children, and I was pleasantly surprised by the upbeat talk that will resonate with kids in the age range she is targeting. I enjoyed it enough to recommend to other people. I received a review copy from NetGalley and have left my opinion.

This was a vibrant, relatable guide to identifying passions, interests and accomplishments for young people, a useful framework for the larger conversation about "following your dreams" and "finding your passion" that many can find confusing and overwhelming. I enjoyed the exercises myself as a grown-up, and think this would be a useful volume for teachers, counselors and parents to have on hand to share with tweens and teens. I liked how Ekstrom used her life experience to illustrate the stages of her growth and development. The design is really nice, too.

This six chapter sample was cute. The formatting in my Kindle left something to be desired, but I got the gist of it. 
It is very much aimed toward young females. The journal pages  and dream big shared the essence of Rachel Hollis and overall reminded me of an Iyanla Vanzant journal/ workbook I had when I was a kid. 
Overall, not bad. Not spot on for me (I’m a tad older than the intended audience). I think many young females will enjoy.
