From School Library Journal

Have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? The relatable and inspiring words in award-winning composer and playwright Miranda's book might infuse a little positivity into your a.m. routine. This volume contains a little more than 200 pages of concise pieces of advice with which to start or end the day. Readers can tear through this book in a single sitting or digest it slowly-they may wish to savor the volume by reading a single "pep talk" in the morning and one at night. Miranda's words, accompanied by Sun's comforting, spare black-and-white illustrations, warrant reexamining. The writing evokes the language of mindfulness, with lines like: "Give that maelstrom in your head a place to land." VERDICT For those who enjoy self-help and psychology texts and meditation books. The brief, meaningful pep talks are lyrical vignettes and may appeal to poetry readers as well.-Emily ­Butler, Deerfield Academy, MAα(c) Copyright 2011.
