  • 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.
