Packed with creative and quirky prompts, ideas, and activities, The Secret Me Book gives you an inspiring way to get to know this core part of you.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
Is there a movie that defines you?
What's your secret talent?
Here's your secret me book—it's time to celebrate what you're made of.
I liked this book. It was one of those guided journals that give you a starting point, and let you think. It wasn't the best one I've ever done, maybe because I'm already very in tune with myself as a person and in tune with my personalities (what, you didn't know I had more than one?) but I did like it.
I'm not sure if it's aimed towards tweens, teens, or college students, but I feel like anyone who likes journaling and writing and being introspective would enjoy this journal. Writers would get a good use out of it, by using the questions and prompts on their characters rather than themselves (great inspiration!).
All in all I liked The Secret Me Book, just not as much as I liked some of the other guided inspirational journals I've used. It was large enough that there was plenty of space to write, and the layout/format was visually appealing, and that helped a lot.
