Summary
Author Harper's vision for young women on facing tough issues and becoming the architect of your own life. Harper delivers straight talk, interspersed with questions answered in the form of e-mails written by well-known, accomplished women. With the voice of an older sibling, Harper offers stirring encouragement in each chapter and captures the spirit he conveys at his public-speaking events. Includes advice on creating a unique authentic image for yourself; confronting racism and sexism; boys, sex, and responsibility; playing to win; avoiding credit card addiction; and turning dreams into reality.--From publisher description
