Kimberley Crossman is fast becoming a household New Zealand name. Most well-known for her role as Sophie McKay in Shortland Street, this actress, presenter and dancer has now turned her hand to writing with her book Love YOU: Be Your Best & Live Your Dreams.
This positive self-help book serves as a motivational guide to girls embarking upon adulthood, offering advice on everything from choosing role models and setting goals, to stress, jealousy, exercise and family. Kimberley shares her own personal experiences, challenges, and lessons she has learned along the way to further offer inspiration to her readers. She also offers practical tools and exercises for goal-setting, relationships, and self-image, and asks the reader some very thought-provoking questions.
While Love YOU: Be Your Best & Live Your Dreams has been promoted as a book for young women, I think it is ideally suited to teens and girls soon entering their teenage years. These age-groups, trying to navigate their way through an awkward phase of growing up, can benefit greatly from Kimberley's supportive voice. In spite of some poor grammar usage, an excess of cliches, and a lacklustre style, this was a book I wish I had read when I was embarking upon my teen years. With its fun, playful and girly layout, this is the voice of a concerned big sister - one every girl should have.
If pursuing dreams, believing in yourself, confidence, or staying true to yourself are important to you or for a young woman you know, this is the book to look out for. In the words of Kimberley: "feel inspired and excited about unlocking your full potential."
