Book Overview

Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she’s dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls.

Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff.

Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she’s lost two of the people closest to her.

Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?

Book Review

This is one of those books that’s refreshing to read.

Sure, the main character is fighting through her anxiety and facing the realism of life and its quirks, hard times and revelations, but aren’t we all?

It was nice to have a character that’s not only relatable but entirely real.I feel like we all have a little bit of Cecily as part of us.Its a great read for those younger generations, who have yet to fully come to terms with their lives and it becomes a way for them to see the positive transformation and some guidelines.

For those of us who have already walked that line, it’s a good reminder of where we’ve come from. This is well written, the characters have depth and the story is beautiful.
