The book is well written in the vernacular of the teenage girl and easily understood by people of all ages. I found the central theme of "becoming the director of your own life" to be a brilliant metaphor; parents become producers, friends become cast of characters, and even though you "call the shots", it is easy to get caught up in others opinions and manipulations.
Emily Roberts MA LPC does a superb job in defining the role that we should all play in our lives, with real life scenarios that are easily relatable to life. All teens must read this book! It prepares young women to be assertive and confident in today's high stress, high drama, high tech world.
Each chapter has its own directors notes, with little hastagable quotes such as, "Your future depends on the decisions you make today. Don't look back in regret. #ExpressYourself". These notes sum up the chapter and reiterate the need for strength and assertiveness no matter what life can throw at us.
I feel that reading this as a teenager will benefit them all throughout their adolescence. Both an 11 year old and a 20 year old can relate to its scenarios. I felt myself relating and learning from the book even at age 28. It is a terrific resource for girls to turn back to when they have a tough decision to make (there are step by step guides to write their script for different situations).
If you are a teen girl, or if you have a daughter/neice/granddaughter/goddaughter/cousin who is a teen, do not hesitate. This book will be cherished and re-read for years because of its practical applications in so many situations.
