Girls Rule by Ashley Rice
Girl power is what this book is about. As long as you are a teenage girl or a young woman, it is meant for you. It takes only 15 minutes to finish it. Its illustrations are simple, colorful, youthful, and lively. One moment you are empowered, challenged in the next lines, and entertained later on, and so it should not be a boring read, except if you find there is nothing more to celebrate in this life as you are.
This book reminds girl readers they can achieve whatever their hearts desire and rise up to the challenges along the way if only they believe and keep on dreaming. A girl who rules is brave, talented, determined, and strong. A girl who rules also gets sad and cries sometimes but it is normal and it is absolutely okay. A girl who rules loves and gets hurt, but loves again because she believes in it anyway. A girl who rules loves herself and takes charge. A girl who rules believes she can be a star.
Read it again and again. It is loaded with positivity, hope, love, and happiness – a session of book therapy for a girl or a woman who may be, at this point, experiencing failures, confusion, rejection, or anything that prevents her light from shining through. Finishing it lightens up the mood and gives a lost soul a bit of perspective once more.
As a reader, its book cover in heavy pink and its shape add a girlish, softy side to it, if it is intended to be so. The drawings are childish maybe, however, it gives me the impression to maintain a childlike attitude: simple, energetic, and enthusiastic.
