The Joey Parker Movement
Against All Odds
by Joey Parker
His website has been a source of positive celebrity content for people around the world, offering a break from snark, judgement and gossip. Now, in his widely endorsed book, Joey Parker offers practical and inspiring advice for teens anywhere on how to stay positive in a negative world.
Read in more than 100 countries, JoeyParkerMovement.com forgoes snark, judgment, and tabloid-style gossip in favor of generating positive celebrity content, including coverage of celebrities’ charitable and philanthropic pursuits.
In this offering, founder Joey Parker channels that positivity and sense of optimism as he seeks to give today’s youth a new and positive perspective on life, drawing on his own experiences and struggles. Among the topics he discusses are coming out in a conservative town, politics, and what it takes to find and make a positive name for oneself in the modern world. With endorsements and contributions from the likes of Paris Hilton, civil rights activist Justin Mikita, Def Jam cofounder Russell Simmons, actors Ian Somerhalder, Denise Richards, and Lisa Rinna, and Real Housewives of New York star Aviva Drescher, to name a few, The Joey Parker Movement looks to make a difference in the lives of its readers.
