This uplifting and beautifully illustrated gift book from award-winning actress Jenna Ortega will inspire you to lean into faith and love and family during life’s most difficult, and most joyous, moments.
I want you, my readers, to know that you are not alone. We are in this together.
This collection from actress Jenna Ortega is filled with Jenna’s own original quotes and affirmations, alongside intimate, personal stories about growing up Latina in Hollywood, working through depression, falling in–and out of–love, losing close family members, and so much more.
Jenna has had to balance her acting career, her private life, and public expectations from a young age, and she’s learned that the only way to get through it all is to wake up every morning and affirm her commitment to herself, her faith, her mental health, and her family. In this honest and moving debut, she shares openly and intimately what it means to live this life of self-appreciation.
Jenna’s vulnerability will remind readers that there’s power within us all and we are not alone in our struggles.

It’s All Love was inspiring nonfiction written for Teen/YA, a collection of actress Jenna Ortega’s motivational quotes and affirmations about hope, confidence, taking chance, believing in yourself, friendship, love, family, and kindness.
Writing was simple, easy to follow, and fast paced due to short para for chapters and quotes for chapter headings. It felt like those diary entries where we write what we learned and gratitude towards friends and family.
In this book author shares her thoughts on things she learned through her experience about faith, kindness, importance of family and friends, heartbreaks and how she learned from bad relationships, letting go of negative energy and negative people and opening door to positivity and people who really matters in life, not to shut down family and friends in crisis, being comfortable with your body and what you wear, not being disappointed by rejection or set backs but learning from the experience, taking criticism as learning points and ignoring haters and not to engage energy and time by responding to haters.
I loved the overall message thatimparted you’re in control of your life, how you drive it through passion and determination no matter what others think about it or try to discourage you from its course; believe in your dream and your ability to make it come true and be patient in reaching goals; it’s competitive world, someone who started the same journey as yours would achieve goals earlier than you or slower than you so it’s better to focus your energy in your own rather than comparing it with other; being open with your thoughts and not to be afraid of doing right things; having faith in God or religion you follow and how faith helped author connect with things, goodness in universe, and brought peace and positivity.
I loved how she said and showed throughout the book that God is comes first then family, friends, school, and career. Best chapter was the one in which she talked about her grandfather. It’s really great Jenna Ortega learned such important things at young age. It will be great motivational book for young readers.
Why 4 stars-
It’s more for young reader or teenagers. There was nothing wrong with the book but maybe because of my age and my experience I knew these things and have read it before.
Overall, It’s All Love was quick read, great inspirational and motivational collection of dream and love for teens and young readers.
