Based on Celia Straus' Prayers on My Pillow, I'm More Than What I Seem collects inspiring poems and non-denominational prayers for girls and young women between nine and 16 years old. Some of the performers on the album include Meredith Baxter, Annette Bening, Blythe Danner, Swoosie Kurtz, Amy Irving, Kathleen Turner, and Straus herself, and all of the spoken-word performances include gentle, acoustic background music. The set also features deluxe packaging and a 40-page booklet, and a portion of the album's proceeds benefit Motherless Daughters, a charity that supports girls who have lost their mothers. A worthwhile collection of sharing and inspiration for daughters of all ages.
