    I very rarely spend time reviewing books I dislike, but I feel that this one deserves at least an explanation for the two stars. I appreciate the sentiments Jones is trying to get across about empowering women and supporting one another through tough times, however it seems that she is blinded to the barriers that face women without her privilege. Jones seems very blind to additional forms of societal oppression that face women who may live in poverty, who may be different races, religions and n I very rarely spend time reviewing books I dislike, but I feel that this one deserves at least an explanation for the two stars. I appreciate the sentiments Jones is trying to get across about empowering women and supporting one another through tough times, however it seems that she is blinded to the barriers that face women without her privilege. Jones seems very blind to additional forms of societal oppression that face women who may live in poverty, who may be different races, religions and not have a supportive network of friends and family. These factors greatly affect one's trajectory in life and it appears that Jones is unaware of the hardships others face. Sometimes "you can do it!" just doesn't cut it to be successful. Sometimes the obstacles in the way of one's success are insurmountable with the resources they have available. Had Jones focused her book more on overcoming these barriers, seeking support systems, and addressed issues of socioeconomic and racial disparities, this book would have been much better and been more relevant to a much larger demographic.

    What was set-up to be the community building manifesto for generation Y delivered little more than a fluffy pep-talk comprised of pedestrian quotes and cliches with the attribution errors of a tumblr feed. Disappointing and skippable, however the cover looks gorgeous on my bookshelf!

    I loved reading "I am that Girl" because it really inspires! Throughout the whole books there are a lot of ideas and perspectives to rethink your goals and current status, to find ways of improving. Only minus: some of the the storys shared by Jones are "too perfect". Although she says she is making mistakes as well, her actions and examples seem way too flawless and over the top (like when she "saved" the waitress and the way she talked to the guy in the restaurant...).

    I absolutely LOVED this book and am kinda sad that I already finished it. Really, this is one of those books EVERY girl should have read at least once in her lifetime. This book is so encouraging and authentic. I feel like I own the world and am able to do/achieve whatever I desire. Alexis Jones made me gain confidence and respect for myself during that book. She taught me to believe in myself and that I should pursue my dreams. What I loved most is that is was so honest - she didn't just said " I absolutely LOVED this book and am kinda sad that I already finished it.

Thank you so much Alexis Jones for this amazing book. Thanks for making me believe in myself again and thank you for encouraging me to follow my dreams - you're a real rolemodel!

    I was clearly not the target market for this book. Before reading I had no clue who Alexis Jones was, or that there was an organization called "I Am That Girl." All I knew was that it was under my Amazon recommendations, and Goodreads hadn't steered my wrong with books that had a rating higher than 4.0; this just made the cut. The description also said Alexis helped women "ages 8 to 80" so I gave it a shot. If I were under 20, I might have enjoyed this.

Unfortunately, I found it full of fluff and towards the end started questioning if every unnecessary adjective, use of "you, my dear" or "beauty-full" was just to stretch the manuscript to reach a minimum word count. She recycles her sentences often ("[insert name here] showed me that [random positive attribute] is a verb, not just an adjective") and I question taking advice from anyone who considers a potential stint on reality TV as their "first real job out of college." "I Am That Girl" was definitely not written for this woman.

    This book is literally one giant pep talk. It took me forever to finish, because it's not really binge reading material, but rather something to read a chapter here and there. There are not many groundbraking new realizations, just a lot of positive energy. Alexis really emphasizes the importance of hard work and I agree that this is essential, but her work ethic is something else (and I don't necessarily agree with some of her suggested practices).

Overall I Am That Girl seems almost too "polished" and not "raw" (even though Alexis and guest authors get vulnerable in their stories), the language is a bit flowery and exaggerated and the information not straight to the point, but the book is definitely empowering for women and I highlighted some beautiful passages I will go back to.

    This book is best suited for young women, late high school or college. I love the message Alexis shares of loving each other and being cheerleaders rather than competing. And also about gracefully failing.

    “Oh NO,” I thought when I saw the magenta cover and its sugary girl-power word choice. And as one with a philosophy minor, I cringed when I saw the problematic phrase “your truth.” It’s not that I’m against pink and optimistic self help for girls, but a book that touts all these from its cover alone just oozes a candy-coated confidence that oversimplifies life’s problems. I prefer my books with some grit. But Alexis Jones has achieved a lot on her journey, and she can check proving me wrong off he “Oh NO,” I thought when I saw the magenta cover and its sugary girl-power word choice.

I prefer my books with some grit. But Alexis Jones has achieved a lot on her journey, and she can check proving me wrong off her list. My inaccurate premature judgments gradually faded with each page turn. Because I plan to conduct an informative program regarding I AM THAT GIRL during Women’s History Month for my local P.E.O. chapter, I assumed this book would shed some light on the organization’s key values. Without this homework assignment, I likely would not have read it in the first place. It’s no easy feat to smoothly package several life lessons in under 300 pages, especially in an entertaining way, but Jones accomplishes exactly that. And if you’re searching for a quick fix of Pollyanna-ish feel-good optimism, you won’t find it here. Instead, Jones and her many guest storytellers sprinkled throughout the book gracefully balance hardship and heartache with healing, growth and genuine fulfillment along with a side of feisty badassery. Jones does not present herself as one divulging untold how-to instructions for wisdom and success; this book can largely be summed up as an amusing, poignant delivery of plain common sense. Nevertheless, what may be obvious to some may not be obvious to others. We first must build a foundation of common sense in the first place, and leaders like Jones can help us do that in a magical way that emotionally connects with each of her readers. Topics include, but are not limited to: • Identifying your passions and talents, and honoring both in discerning your calling. • How to honor your boundaries in order to love yourself, and therefore love others better. • Navigating pain, trusting dreams and taking risks. • Honesty, integrity and character. • Ditching the temptation to compromise yourself for others’ approval, and refusing to join the female competitive catty culture that pervades today’s society. • Seeking good mentors and building a community of supportive, empowering women. Reading this book is certainly time well spent. So why did I deem it only a four-star work? While its timeless material far exceeds a specific age group, I feel its overall message and advice may resonate best with high-school or college women (i.e. maybe a little too introductory for my nearly 30-year-old seasoned, slightly-cynical self). I also recommend reading with a friend or small group, as its topics present excellent conversation opportunities.

Every girl/woman (no matter which age) should take the time to read this book at least once in their life.

This book will help you find your path, teach you how to appreciate the little things, show you how even changing little things can go a long way and mostly to dream big and never stop. It encourages you to put yourself first and still not lose sight of others around you, to support each other instead of making everything a competition. It was a truly inspiring read and it can help change your outlook on life in just the time you need to read it. It helps you realize things and facades about yourself that you might not have been aware of (good and bad) and Alexis Jones' writing and the great stories of women of all ages and backgrounds will simply blow your mind. Some things are just so simple to change for the better, you might not even be aware of how easy it is. One of the best and most inspiring reads that has taught me to put myself first, take good care of myself and those around me and support my fellow ladies and accept their flaws for what they are - the perfectly flawed version of themselves. So how about we all read the book, think about ourselves, reflect and decide to just #bethatgirl? It will be worth your while.

    In I AM THAT GIRL, Alexis Jones helps you find your purpose, what you want in life and who you want to be. The book is separated into two parts with different chapters in each section.

I also loved how she worded everything. I think Jones' purpose for writing this book is to change the world and help girls make the best out their life. I liked everything about this book, I would not change anything about it. If you ever have self doubt, or don't think you're enough to, Jones shows you that you are enough and you don't need to wait for the approval of others. Overall I gave this book a 5/5 stars on GoodReads. I really loved reading this book and Jones made it so easy to connect to. I would recommend this book to girls any age, I think every girl should read this book sometime in their life. This book will for sure inspire you in some way.

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! Alexis Jones helps girls of all ages find their carve their own path in life. Its a book for girls to harvest their passion and run with it. Throughout the book the language is as empowering as the message. The words stick with the reader and follow them around. I have caught myself several times in moments of weakness thinking, “Be Hard-Core”, “Soak it all up”, or “I am enough”. These little phrases stick with me through my tough days at school, adversity, and hardship. The w I LOVED THIS BOOK! Alexis Jones helps girls of all ages find their carve their own path in life.

    I couldn't do it. I had to give up on this. I had a hard time reading it. I liked the premise of it and I found many useful concepts and quotes, but the author's voice was unbearable. Her perspective was narrowminded, entitled, and privileged. I couldn't bring myself to appreciate her points of view and I couldn't take her seriously. I really wanted to get through this book and give it a chance, but I did not like how I felt when I read it. It's time to move on to something new. I couldn't do it. I had to give up on this.

    I really, really enjoyed this book! As a 40 something woman it really gave me back some of the drive and confidence we can lose as everyday life takes hold of us. Like many of you here I to have highlighted throughout this book. Very inspirational. A big thank you to the Paper and Glam Book Club because I would have never picked this book up if not for you.

    I finally did it. After following Alexis Jones and her nonprofit, I AM THAT GIRL on social media for so long, I finally sat down to read her book. Inspiring, eye opening, and magnificent are just a few words to describe this book.

There are guest writers in the book that share personal stories that I am sure most girls could relate to. One of these guest writers being Sophia Bush who is one of my idols and an advocate for women and social justice issues around the world. This book is filled with many stories, advice, and kind words from badass women who are pushing their message of empowerment to the rest of us girls. This message is so very important and I can’t wait for the day my own daughters and read this book and really take away some important lessons from it. Amazing read!

    This book was very inspiring and I believe every woman could relate to some, if not all, of this book. I would even consider it to now be my “woman’s bible” as I have so many quotes/sections marked, highlighted, and dogeared that spoke out to me the most, so I can continue to refer back to them.

Although Alexis’s work was well done and encouraging, I found the most inspiration in the women’s stories of their real life experiences. I think that this book is definitely 5 star material, but I took off a start because I did feel like the second half of the book was dragging. Other than the changing guest speaker entries, I felt a lot of the motivational words of encouragement in between was starting to feel repeated by the end of the book. Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. I took so many positive things from reading this book and truthfully learned a little more about myself along the way. It’s all around a top choice of you’re looking for something to help you feel like a super badass who can conquer anything.

    I skim-read this as fast as possible, hoping there would be something to help with a potential career-pivot for myself (because the title suggests that it will do so). But all it was was fluffy pep-talks and repeated phrases like “you can do it! Don’t make excuses! Just eat healthy and exercise and you’ll fell better!” There were two pages about career exploration/ expansion, and even those had the super-obvious advice to explore and spend time on your passion. DUH. Kind of pedantic advice.

DUH. Kind of pedantic advice. And I felt like this book only caters to women who have time and money to spare, but still have low self-esteem. My self esteem is fine, and since that was *most* of the book, it was entirely unhelpful. And I don’t see how this book would help women who have to work several jobs to make ends meet. Or women who don’t have a strong support system. They can’t just pump the breaks on their responsibilities to spend lots of time taking day naps and reading and hitting the gym and making healthy meals. This book would maybe help a new-to-the-career-world, young, uncertain young woman (whose job or family can support her and who doesn’t have kids), but it doesn’t have much to offer those of us who’ve been working hard and are trying to expand ourselves or pivot professionally.

    I found this was a good read to see that we women need to love ourselves and surround ourselves with supportive people that help us grow, love us, want the best for us, and are positive. Also, Jones talks about becoming supporters of each other and not competition. I think there needs to be more out there with this message and we should take initiative to make it happen. All of us have struggles and we glean so much from a community of support and camaraderie.

I think there are people who picked up this book in hopes to find steps to follow such as a self-help outline but, Jones states in her introduction that this is not that kind of book. I would say this book is good to read to hear from someone's lessons in why it is important to learn and know yourself and try to figure out what works for you..., not following a laid out plan from someone else.

    This book took me a looong time to read, but mostly on my own account and distraction. Maybe the book wasn’t as intriguing to consistently pick it up? I feel like overall it is worth reading if you’re just starting your career, college, or young adult self. I’d say that I resonated with a lot of the stories overall! I tried to research this women empowerment movement post reading and didn’t find much recent news...so not sure if this book is too dated for today rather than 3-4 years ago.

    This one took me a while to read, but I think that's mainly because I had to get my mind in the right place first. When I picked it up in May I was at a very low point in my life...I wanted a book that would "fix me" or tell me what I was doing "wrong." As time has passed I've gotten stronger and this time when I picked it up I was ready to receive the message it sent, and I breezed right through the second half of the book with ease.

    The book was one giant pep talk that was super disappointing to me. It took me three months to get through it because it was very difficult to read because it wasn’t engaging. I would not recommend this for women in their twenties but I think it is more applicable for teenagers. I didn’t really learn anything, it was mostly fluff. Also several misattribute quotes which comes off as very unprofessional. I did enjoy the section about learning to say no and choosing your priorities.

Overall, I think it’s well-rounded and well-written, I loved the personal stories from strong women, and it shed light on new or overlooked areas. I thought the chapters were super long (although, I understood the formatting), which made this book drag. Also, it fades into the general self-help/empowerment category, and is truly meant for women who need a confidence boost or a teenage audience.

    "I Am That Girl" is well worth the read. This is a book that every woman should own. I found this book to be one I couldn't put down. Inside this book's pages are wonderful life lessons, and positive affirmations that have the power to change your way of thinking, build your strength, & remind you of how special you are. I really enjoyed this book. Comment "I Am That Girl" is well worth the read. This is a book that every woman should own. I found this book to be one I couldn't put down.

    There are plenty of good lessons in here and would be great for a teenager or someone in her early twenties. Whilst it certainly would be a “feel good” book, some of life’s challenges (such as discrimination) aren’t covered. My 3-star rating is because I’m almost 26 and just felt I was a bit out of the target audience.

    As someone who doesn’t typically read this genre of books, I found that I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. There are many different stories from different women included, which was what I found most inspiring. Overall a great, quick read that leaves you feeling inspired. A good way to kick of my 2018 reading list!

    Not original content, while I loved the idea of this book, I just couldn't get all the way through some of the rough writing, without feeling like I was receiving any new ideas or impact from the book. I had hoped to find in it something to the serious pump up like You are a Bad Ass, but I wasn't even able to finish this book without feeling a bit bored.

    ALL THE YES! This book was amazing - so much motivation but not only that, it spoke truth about who we, as women, have a tendency to view ourselves as: less than enough. Shining light on those uncomfortable truths was continuing theme throughout the book. Thank you Alexis for forcing me to acknowledge THAT GIRL.
