Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“What Bond has created is a resource for black girls and women alike to look to and find inspiration from in a world that has historically ignored and undervalued them. In celebrating women, Bond celebrates diversity, individuality, and a world-wide sisterhood.” Booklist
“Rich in collective wisdom…The courage, grace, passion, and intelligence that characterize each of the separate narratives are sure to motivate any woman seeking to succeed in a (white) man’s world. An inspiring collection.”­ Kirkus Reviews
