"Letters to a Young Sister: DeFINE Your Destiny" by: Hill Harper and Gabrielle Union


  In the book "Letters to a Young Sister: DeFINE Your Destiny" by Hill Harper and Gabrielle Union, is about Hill Harper sharing his own letters to a young sister named Gabrielle Union and in his letters, Hill Harper is giving her advice about her personal real life questions. During this time, Hill Harper was surprised by how many woman came to him and asking for advice. Throughout the book, Hill Harper brought a few wonderful and powerful black women to help him give advice to the young sister. There names were  Angela Bassett, Michelle Obama, Ruby Dee, Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, Nikki Giovanni, Sanaa Lathan, Bishop Noel Jones, Dr.S.Elizabeth Ford, Nia Long, Tatyana Ali, Lauren London, Cathy Hughes and a few others. But most importantly throughout the book he is listening and answering a lot of young women questions while he is on tour. Hill Harper is an attorney that turned into an actor throughout the years. Throughout the book, Hill Harper has a calm tone but also fun. Since he has worked with a lot of women, he personally thought that it would be fun and new to give advice to women.


  From reading "Letters to a Young Sister: DeFINE Your Destiny" by Hill Harper has made me realize that I'm not the only one that goes through things and have questions to ask people that I trust. I didn't really like the book, I LOVED IT!! I loved this book because it answered all of my questions for me and his was basically giving me advice about mmy problems. I also liked how he brought other women that had expierenced the same thing to help him answer the questions that younger women are asking him. One thing that I didn't like about the book was that he was only talking and answering only one particualar females' questions and not a random number of women. While I was reading this book, I wanted to know why Hill Harper would write a book to young women to give them advice and to help them with their own problems when he has problems of his own? I would recommend this to younger females that doesn't have anyone to ask questions to, so that they can see that they aren't the only ones that goes through things.
