Seventeen contributing editor Demi Lovato talks about the book that helps her remember to keep positive, and of course, stay strong.

I read a really inspiring book recently called Piece of Cake, by Cupcake Brown. Her story challenged me to look at my own life with new perspective, and made me reflect on how much I have to be thankful for. This book reminds me that life isn’t about the obstacles that stand in your way. It’s about what you do to overcome those obstacles, and how you pick yourself up afterward. That’s what really matter. To borrow a quote from Cupcake’s website:
“Her story is also about choices—good ones and bad ones— and about the possibilities that are there if only we “Pray, trust, work hard, and grab hold!” Most people would have been daunted by the hurdles she faced, but despite enormous fear and grave self-doubt, Cupcake grabbed a hold, prayed, and held on for dear life as she learned that there was another way—a better way.”
I recently went through a rough time in my own life and I admire Cupcake for sharing her story with the world—she’s truly an inspiration to me, and to millions of other women out there. Remember, when life gets tough, STAY STRONG.
