I've been waiting for this book to come out since I'm a fan of the author's blog.  I thought it might be a collection of some of her most popular blog posts but it was so much more!  I'm recommending this book to every woman I know.  With the bright pink cover you might think it's a girly girl fluff piece, but So. Not. True.  The author presents some interesting research along with her entertaining story about shunning mirrors for a year.  Really made me think about the beauty culture and the impact it has on the self-esteem of young girls and women of all ages.  A really great story that held my interest throughout and made me laugh out loud a couple times too!

This book was bought for me by my boyfriend. I havent read it all. I am getting through it and finding it incredibly hard to set down. I want to read constantly. This book left me feeling inspired to get a grip on my own body image and start looking at subjects presented in this more closely. I love that this book is relatable and easy to read yet you can tell she was an educated women who is human and struggles like everyone else. I have since looked in the mirror and really looked hard at what I look like. I am a beautiful woman, I am strong, and I refuse to look in the mirror with negative thoughts about my body. After all, Kjrestin Gruys reminded me that the body is an amazing thing....it does incredible things like hug, make art and play sports. I will be recommending this to everyone I know.

Initially interesting,but i expected much more insight. There are way too many elaborate details of clothes shopping forays; it made me wonder if she is being compensated for naming her favorite stores. I appreciate the effort it took to successfully achieve her goal, but the ubiquitous references to her drinking and fashion obsession became boring. Considering her credentials, i expected something more substantial. If you are not a shopaholic party girl you may feel the same way.
