"Allison is a good friend of mine. She knows about life and love and joy and compassion and friendship. These aren't just a collection of letters, they are a series of invitations for you to see yourself more accurately, more compassionately, and more joyfully.... It's a long conversation with a trusted friend."
--Bob Goff, New York Times bestselling author of Love Does
"Allison's wisdom and kindness shine through in every word of these letters. Twenty-Two is a fantastic source of encouragement and confidence for women of all ages, especially those moving through the college years."
--Betsy Miller & Donald Miller, New York Times bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz and Scary Close
"If I could speak to the younger me, I would have nothing to say. I'd just slap her with this book."
--Jeannie Mai, television personality and style expert
"Young women need this book. All women need this book. With clarity, depth, and vulnerability, Allison writes an impressive tome on mentorship, faith, personal discovery, and becoming. A refreshing and much-needed perspective on womanhood that allows for all things rather than constricting the feminine to a set of expectations."
--Kirsten Haglund, Miss America 2008, national television political
commentator, host, and women's health advocate
"Plato believed that the stories the young first encounter should be models of virtue. Sadly, many modern books are empty wrappers of thought-candy that stimulate our brains but cannot sustain our hunger for substance. In the midst of such a moment, Allison Trowbridge offers a book of plummeting depth that still manages to both dazzle and captivate. Twenty-Two is a timeless guide to life and love, grief, and celebration that lunges at you with both the spirit of Plato and flashes of uncommon wisdom. If you're a young woman--or young man, actually--you cannot afford to miss this book."
--Jonathan Merritt, contributing writer for the Atlantic and author of Learning to Speak God from Scratch

A PERFECT BOOK FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE GRADUATES. I bought it for my 21 year old assistant and my mom.
I inititally shied away from reading the book because I wondered if it would be geared specifically for 22-year-olds, perhaps those who are newly out of college and ready to enter the next step of their lives. But the book is applicable for people in their early or late twenties (and maybe even early thirties), and would be good for young women as well as young men. Trowbridge does not tell people how to live, but rather uses her own experiences to show how one can overcome obstacles in their lives. The author certainly gives sound, practical advice to her readers.
