CHOOSE TO MATTER
Being Courageously and Fabulously You
By Julie Foudy. Compiled by two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Julie Foudy, this collection of stories and exercises is designed to encourage teen girls and young women to be courageous, dream big, grow daily, find joy in all they do, and understand that leadership is personal, not positional. The author reveals what she has learned from her own experiences and from ten accomplished women (including Robin Roberts, Mia Hamm, Sheryl Sandberg, and others) who share their stories. Written in a lighthearted, conversational tone and embellished with lots of doodles, this roadmap to leadership also includes an abundance of pertinent quotations, personal musings, and motivating slogans. Grades 7–12. Illustrated. ESPNW. 287 pages. ©2017.
