Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Passionate, heartfelt, practical, true. A girl-to-girl inspiration!” Eve Ensler, New York Times bestselling author
“Penn…uses her early successes to inspire others. Over three sections, Penn urges readers to embrace their creativity and interests, and to consider how doing something they love might lead to unexpected opportunities. Mixed in are autobiographical passages…Ambitious and motivated readers should find her can-do attitude contagious.” Publishers Weekly
“Shares her blueprint for success with an emphasis on self-esteem, ambition, and role models. The tone is fun and conversational as Penn identifies common modes of thinking, with suggested activities for those feeling unfocused or overwhelmed.” School Library Journal
“Maya offers plenty of good advice and peppers her narrative with her own stories of success and the challenges she overcame.” Kirkus Reviews
“Penn narrates her own audiobook about setting and achieving goals…Penn’s voice is full of the energy, optimism, brains, and charm…Her tone is that of a friend talking to a friend, and she uses examples from her own life, along with profiles of other entrepreneurs, making for an approachable and entertaining listen.” AudioFile
