Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back

Katherine Schwarzenegger, Hyperion/Voice, $22.99 (213p) ISBN 978-1401341435
One would be forgiven for assuming that the daughter of actor, bodybuilder, and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver has led a rarified and privileged life, free of strife about issues typically associated with adolescence, like body image, sexuality, and self esteem. But Schwarzenegger, currently an undergraduate at USC, uses her platform to share her experiences in a debut that rides the line between self-help and memoir. Her goal is to mine her own journey in order to empower women, and she wisely discusses eating disorders, birth control, and other hot-button issues in a direct, candid tone complimented by statistics, expert opinion, history, and insight from other women who have struggled with these concerns. "For Moms Only" boxes underscore the important positive role that mothers need to play and offer tips on helping daughters achieve confidence and a positive self- image. Despite the name on the spine, this is girl power from one (relatively) normal young woman to another. (Sept.)
