~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
I love everything about this book!! This book is wonderful! This is one of my top favorites of the year! I would recommend this book to my future daughter, my sister, my best friend, a person that is skinny or curvy, a person that has a big nose or a person that has pimples. This book is for every woman in the world who has insecurities.
I do not even know how to start this review without grabbing for my Kleenexes. Not because this book is sad but because this book made me feel so many emotions and made me feel so connected to Tori, the female character in this book. The author grabbed me from the first page until the last page page of epilogue. I finished this book in one setting. I couldn't put it down. Even if Justin Timberlake came in dancing in front of me, I would have stayed glued to the book. I was THAT hooked!!
This book is about eighteen year old, Tori, who lacks self-confidences. Tori has always wanted attention from her parents and a special guy. Tori does not like herself at all; she wants to change her looks and the way she acts so she can fit in and get a boyfriend. Hanging out with her brother Jim and his friends, she wants to be show she is not a little girl anymore and she is ready to change. Even if she makes stupid mistakes.
One of Jim's friend, Grant, notices how the other guys see her and how she sees herself. He wants to help her anyway he can as a friend. Grant and Tori spend a week together just doing friend stuff, like watching Netflix. At the end of the week, they go their separate ways to college. Once Tori goes to college she meets her roommate Kenna, who is everything she wishes she could look like and who she wants to be. Kenna wants to help her gain her self-confidence and as the book goes on you will see that two help each other out in the end. Grant and Tori's relationship is heart-breaking. It made Tori want to be something else. In the end, Tori has to decide what makes her happy. Tori and Grant will have their reunion seeing each other again. But does Grant like the new Tori and will Tori forgive him for what he did to her? Those are some questions that I know you will want to read this book to find the answers.
I have struggled with my self-esteem issues for as long as I can remember. I just want everyone that reads this review to know that you are beautiful!! God has made you to be one of a kind. Think of how lucky you are to be chosen by him to be on displayed for the world and for HIM to see you!!! This story is about accepting who you are and what you have been dealt with in life and how you want to live your life.
