This is the anthology of the modern age of women. Girls of all ages, from all walks of life, unfold the events of their lives to the eyes of the public. Raw, honest, positive, and hopeful stories line the pages of de la Cruz’s book. Read of the courage of trailblazing politicians, financial executives, and fiery entrepreneurs. Witness the bloom of young girls into fierce advocates, truth-speaking writers, and empathetic social innovators. Ache with the bruised, abused, and suppressed; rejoice as they rise above the cards they’re dealt to mentor and raise the ones behind them.
