Publisher's summary

Audie Award, Personal Development, 2011

Modeled after Maria Shriver's Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah's goal with Put on Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem.

A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown's assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the "Hollywood ideal" of what a confident beautiful woman should look like. The result: She's one of the biggest A-list celebrities in Hollywood.
