From My Heart To Yours...Letters to My Young Sisters by Stephanie Brunner Tillman is a powerful and provocative work of nonfiction that is as savvy and streetwise as it is honest and engaging. Essential reading for young African-American preteens and teens, this self-help guide provides discourse on topics such as personal development, decision-making skills, and how to be above the influence of peers and negative peer pressure. A collection of thirteen easy to read essays in all, the main premise is to overcome any obstacle that might come in the way of a young person’s success—specifically, a young African-American girl’s success. Peppered with inspiring quotes from the Bible, among other notables, each essay offers a windfall of inspiration to either overcome adversity, understand the powers of persuasion, or simply be true to one’s phenomenal, phenomenal self.
