A remarkable, diverse, and talented cast read aloud letters written to their younger selves. King (CBS This Morning) selected some of the most inspiring pieces she collected over the years and compiled them in this honest, emotional, and uplifting audiobook. Celebrities, athletes, pop culture icons, doctors, astronauts, and more read aloud correspondence that they wish their younger selves could have benefited from and been comforted. Oprah, Danika Patrick, Kermit the Frog, Tyler Perry, Dr. Ruth, and President Jimmy Carter are just some of the many amazing contributors. King does an excellent job of introducing each essayist and their achievements.
VERDICT This wonderful and uplifting reflection on youth, lessons learned, and self-love would be a perfect gift for graduates and fans of inspiring reads.
