*Starred Review* In this inspiring memoir, journalist Welteroth outlines her meteoric rise to success. Welteroth was raised in northern California, the confident, driven child of a Black mother and white father. As early as grade school, she was sure of two important truths: she was born to be the boss, and the fact of her race would be with her every step of the way. Detailing her professional journey, Welteroth tells of the break she caught at 20 that launched her into journalism; the mentor who steered her into an editorial position at Ebony; her first job in the mythical Condé Nast headquarters; and the implicit biases she encountered along the way. At 29, Welteroth became editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, charged with diversifying and electrifying the wilting magazine. Threaded throughout are tales of her more personal life: toxic relationships, burnout, and a struggle to claim space for herself and deserving, under-represented others. With lyrical prose resonant of Jacqueline Woodson's, Welteroth shows what it truly means to be a leader: to elevate others and challenge systems of oppression, without ever sacrificing a job well done. Now writing for television and judging on Project Runway, Welteroth is proof that "living the dream" is an ever-changing, ever-satisfying journey to behold. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Welteroth's debut memoir is an insightful, eye-opening chronicle of her rise from wide-eyed intern to editor in chief of one of the top U.S. fashion magazines. Born to an African American mother and white father, Welteroth explains how feelings of "otherness," high ambition, and love of fashion led to a revelation at age 19, when she realized she wanted to be a fashion magazine editor. The author achieved this goal by her late 20s, becoming the first and youngest African American editor at Condé Nast, assuming the role of editor in chief of Teen Vogue in 2017. However, her rise to the top was fraught with perils, including racial bias, fractured romances, and pay disparities. She recounts these challenges, along with her struggles with finding a reliable life partner and creating a work/life balance. While the title may lead some to consider this a self-help book, it's not; at least not in the traditional sense. VERDICT An inspiring memoir of a remarkable journey that shows of the power of faith, friendship, family and dreams.—Leah Huey, Dekalb P.L., IL
