Publisher's Summary

Modeled after Maria Shriver's Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah's goal with Put on Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem.
A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown's assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the "Hollywood ideal" of what a confident beautiful woman should look like. The result: She's one of the biggest A-list celebrities in Hollywood.

Young Ladies Need Motivation Too

Her voice is familiar and loved by many young people. She gives handy bits of advice that teens and young women can certainly understand and use.
Simple advice about true beauty, money and overcoming adversity are shared without brow beating.

I think it is a good mother-daughter or mentor-mentee share. I listened to the whole book to see if it would be appropriate for my tween daughter. I certainly think it is. I am also recommending it to my friends.

Dana is an inspiration. I want to hear more.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book in a heartbeat. Dana is honest and vulnerable in the telling of her story. She is a regular girl who rose above the obstacles life can throw at us. Her relationship with her mother is deep and together they are paying their blessings forward. This is a must read for all especially teenagers.

What does Queen Latifah bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her beautiful voice. It was as if she was sitting in my living room and she was talking to just me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, this is a one sitting book, that I have now listened to three times already. I laughed. I cried. I cheered. I was moved.
