My Review

I'll be real honest with you here. I wasn't too sure of this book at first.

It starts out with a young woman, a beauty influencer she is stuck on herself, in my opinion a fake person. She does beauty vlogs,promotes beauty products,sells her face while selling beauty products and building her followers on all the social media sites. Now that is not me and I don't like fake friendly people who are in it for the sales and follows.

But then..........

While trying to boost the number of followers she has she has to do something to make herself look good and not in a physical way but in a way to impress people through community service and showing herself in a more approachable and realistic way.

This woman gets hit hard and I mean hard with a realistic dose of life.

It's no longer about kitten heels and self tanners but she does discover what

really is important.

And believe me it's not a pretty face and massive amounts of followers.

Suddenly her volunteering with these teens has given her new meaning in life. I believe it was just as beneficial to her bringing out the best in these teens as it is to them.

This book is so realistic it's like a real wake up call to go above and beyond what we see in ourselves, like ripping off the blindfold and we are finally able to see what is really important. Absolutely Amazing and I highly recommend this book!

GoodReads Summary

Molly McKenzie's bright personality and on-trend fashion and beauty advice have earned her an impressive social media following, as well as a big paycheck each month. When her manager-turned-boyfriend says she has an audition to appear as a host on a makeover show that nominates underprivileged youth, her dream of further fame seems to be coming true. There's just one catch: she has little experience interacting with people in need.

When her manager-boyfriend convinces her to partner with a local organization, she begins volunteering with a summer youth program. The program's director, Silas Whittaker, challenges her at every turn, but she swiftly grows more attached to the kids--and him--every day.

As Molly experiences an acceptance unlike anything she's known, she wrestles with the lies she's been believing about herself for years. She thought she knew what mattered most in life, but maybe she's had it wrong this whole time, and there's more to being truly seen than what she's built her entire life on.
