We all have moments from childhood that have molded our perceptions of ourselves and our lives. In Girls Like Us forty accomplished and influential women share these tender and uplifting moments from their own childhoods and teenage years. Isabel Allende tells of her parents' priceless gift in encouraging her to express her creativity; Faye Wattleton describes how a checkered and difficult childhood shaped her into the determined leader she is today; novelist Amy Tan explores the life of a young girl and her relationship to her mother in The Joy Luck Club. The book includes photographs of some of the contributors at the age they appear in their stories, as well as brief biographies of each. Girls Like Us celebrates the poignant coming-of-age moments experienced by prominent women of this century. This book is a great anthology for everyone wishing to cultivate and remember what it is to be young again.
