Letters to Evan from Girls Near and Far
Dear Evan, About your book: Loved it loved it loved it loved it loved it. Oh My God. UM, LIKE…OM was so awesome. I mean, when I saw it I was like, “ugh, another self help, you are beautiful, don’t let anybody tell you different book. Fabulous…NOT.” But my loyalty to the site (and the fact I was babysitting for my year old nephew that was sleeping) won over, and I read it. And I LOVED it. I have been doing yoga for YEARS, but I have never seen yoga in this light. I mean, my yoga teachers teach the PHYSICAL aspect of yoga, not the emotional, spiritual aspects, and that is totally what like, me and all my friends need. Seriously, if you need a pick me up, READ THIS BOOK and DO THE EXERCISES. It really rocks.

This book is amazing. Evan Cooper knows exactly what every girl is worrying and wondering about and has made yoga work for us! I’ve tried yoga before and it was okay, but this yoga is the best by far. Reading this book can change your life.

Hi, My name is Zoë. I’m 12 years old. I first found your book in my local Library and read it in about 2 days. I re-read it instantly after that. In a way, I felt like UM, LIKE…OM changed my life. When I read it I feel more calm instantly. I was super delighted when my parents bought it for me during Hanukah… …thank you for writing your wonderful book that¹s totally inspired me to be a healthier, happier person. You taught me a totally better way to handle my feelings then heading strait for the chocolate. So thanks.
