Review: My favorite thing about this book is the message that it sends. I think it was a unique idea and this journey of discovering self respect, standing up for yourself and finding beauty in all places was a really great one. This was a very character driven story and the plot wasn't all that action packed but I felt like each moment had some sort of significance to the overall theme of finding beauty within yourself. There was a mix of serious moments and moments that made me laugh, which I really liked. I thought Terra was a really easy character to relate to. What teenager can't relate to the feeling of being insecure with some part of their appearance? Anyone who has problems with self confidence should read this. I thought all the characters were pretty well rounded. Terra and her family were a really great plot line. i liked seeing the way they all changed over the course of the story. I don't want to spoil anything but i think the setting was also really great, especially in the second half. My only complaint was, as I mentioned, the plot was a little slow in some places and a little bit predictable but overall, this one was pretty good.
