Publisher's Summary

Graduating from high school is a big step for any girl. She is leaving her childhood behind and beginning the rest of her life. She is also leaving her mother's protective circle of love and guidance. One of the greatest gifts a mother can give her daughter at this pivotal moment in her life is good counsel. In And One More Thing Before You Go..., Maria Shriver, best-selling author, acclaimed journalist, First Lady of California, and mother of two daughters, provides a loving and heartfelt guide for girls as they go off to college.

Expanded from a speech given to her young friend Ally's graduation class, Maria speaks as a wiser, more experienced girlfriend, but also as both the daughter of a mother whose advice she still seeks and as the mother of the daughters for whom she wishes a fulfilling and happy life. In this stirring and inspiring guide, Maria talks to young women about how to find abundance and emotional richness, and how not to overlook life's most special gifts. Her 10 rules offer a firm grasp on what's really important in life.

Thoughtful, compassionate, and filled with love, And One More Thing Before You Go... will make every mother cry and every daughter stop and think about her mother's words.

And One More Thing...

While I thought Ms. Shriver could have done a better job of reading her own work, I did find this an entertaining listen. I have a daughter who will be graduating from high school in June, and I have a bought a copy of this book for her and many of her friends. It never hurts to remind our teenaged girls to be true to themselves as they leave the nest and head off into the next chapter of their lives.

Loved it!! I have boys and I still cried!

This was a great book to hear on Audible. It allowed me to listen as though Maria was giving her speech. Very true to life and honest. I loved it!
