Written as a love letter to her grown children, author Pam Hoelzle shares 52 life lessons to inspire us all. Determined to leave the life instructions her mother didn’t have time to write before her passing, Pam and Alicia tackle everything from loss, betrayal, failure, love, honesty, starting something to designing a life you love. Short, graphic, and transparent, this book will unleash your inner rockstar, inspire you, and challenge you to celebrate your one precious life.



When I first opened this book, I thought it would be a standard “directive of life” belonging on a coffee table or waiting room shelf. It is not. Dear Rockstar is the book I have wanted to write MY children… the author did it in a genuine, informative, and loving way. And better than that, she write it not just for the daughters of the world but also the sons. And the moms. I have a new gift “Go To” book! Love everything Ms. Hoelzle had to say and the corresponding illustrations by Ms. Feinberg were perfect!


This book is so beautiful! As a college student away from home, missing my family, it felt like my mom was speaking to me through the book. It is truly a book you don't want to put down. The words and illustrations were crafted so beautifully and I can't wait to see what else the author and illustrator publish!


I have known Pam for years and her inspiration, hard work and diligence never cease to amaze me. Pam’s thought-provoking authenticity resonates page after page; her words describe success, wins, failure and most of all grace.


I couldn’t put this book down! As soon as I finished reading it (the first time) I went back to revisit the individual letters that particularly resonated with me. Through life’s ups and downs and in-betweens, the author’s sage advice is wrapped in layers of love, hope and grace. Reading it lifted my spirits and inspired me to keep growing, giving, and fully experiencing this one precious life. I couldn’t help but wish I had this book as a young adult. I will be getting a copy for each of my daughters and I think it’ll make perfect high school or college graduation gifts. I just want to thank author Pam Hoelzle for writing this and sharing it with the world, and also hats off to Alicia Feinberg whose illustrations match so perfectly with the book’s content and vibe. ❤️


She introduces this as letters written to her children. It was also letters written to me, BOTH AND. Pam speaks to all of us who struggle with the challenges, to make sense of the experiences, and to make the most of our one wild and precious life. Each letter stands on its own. Each connects experiences that are uniquely hers with truths, perspectives and understanding that we can all learn from. Throughout, she inspires us to recognize, celebrate and embrace the Rockstar we were born to be. A book to be read often. A book to be shared with those you love, work with, and live in community with.


Had me to tears! A MUST READPam, you are a ROCKSTAR in "my book"! I love that you have taken the time to write this book for your daughter, to share your wisdom, to share your love. Just reading your introduction brought me to tears and they never stopped. There is so much unsaid in this world and I commend you for being brave enough to not only share it with her but to share it with us. This is a MUST READ for everyone. Thanks so much Pam!
