Picks and Pans Review: Sailor Girl

UPDATED 09/13/2010 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 09/13/2010 at 01:00 AM EDT

Four months after becoming the world's youngest person to sail around the world solo, non-stop and unassisted, Jessica Watson, 17, shares her story in a book, True Spirit.

YOU'VE ACCOMPLISHED A LOT.

I still have school to finish and I have to learn to drive!

OTHER TEENS [BELOW] HAVE TRIED TO BREAK YOUR RECORD. DID YOU START A TREND?

I'd like to think I've inspired people to follow their dreams.

DO YOU FEEL COMPETITIVE WITH THEM?

No! I'm supportive. We've exchanged messages.

HOW YOUNG IS TOO YOUNG TO TRY THIS?

It's not about age; it's about experience and preparation.

WILL YOU LET YOUR KIDS DO IT?

I'm not thinking about that. I'm 17!
