After loosing her fast-pased celebrity blog job Noelle was in a serious rut. A slump of extreme proportions. Until one day she notices a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, “Do one thing every day that scares you.”   This becomes her raison d’etre for the next year using Eleanor Roosevelt’s writings as a guide. Another guide is her psychiatrist — does everyone who lives in New York see a psychiatrist? She does tries all manner of challenges from trapeze and tap lessons to parachuting and climbing Mount  Kilimanjaro. The funniest scene is when she describes doing standup comedy at a New York Comedy Club fundraiser.

This book reminded me of the book  Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers.

A touching must read. On the lines of Julie and Julia. Needed a better cover.
