Reading Time 
“author Russell has a daughter who worries sometimes. I worry sometimes, too. So do my daughter and many, many people I know. That’s why books like this are essential. They show that we can take a deep breath and rise above our fears and say yes to the many opportunities that life presents, even those that induce belly flutters.” Click here for the full review.
