I really appreciate the realness of this book. After reading this, I feel like I’ve known her all my life and we’ve never even met. Definitely a great read!

I really enjoyed reading this book. I gave a person like more hope and more motivation to go after my dreams no matter what others say or do. It helped me see myself in light all I have been through. I know now that it is not about how I look but about how I feel about myself. That is a power of it's own.
