Beyond the Sky and the Earth: A Journey into Bhutan by Jamie Zeppa

Reader Pick!

“A coming-of-age memoir by a young Canadian woman with a literary bent whose three-year sojourn in a Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas challenged her values, changed her religion, and altered her life’s course.” – Kirkus Reviews

“I felt like I was in Bhutan with Jamie Zeppa. Her colorful descriptions enable you to live and experience every moment with her.” – Indira Pillai, (RebelMom’s mom), Edmonton, Canada

Pieces of Me by Ledisi

RebelMom Pick!

Ledisi is perfect for brainstorming/empowerment sessions. Her powerful lyrics and strong vocals will inspire you to kick it up a notch! I listen to her in my office when I need a little encouragement.

“It’s a straightforward statement of self-realization in a song and album that are about coming to grips with the multiplicity of female identity. That simplicity renders power: Where a less disciplined artist might have gone for a full-throated, orchestral gospel exclamation, the New Orleans-born, Oakland-bred singer with the Nigerian first name makes a statement, period.” Evelyn McDonnell for the LA Times Music Blog
