I must admit that I wasn't convinced that I would like this book. I have started a new thing where I read whatever I'm sent for review and I give up with it as soon as I'm bored, irritated or just don't care enough. I fully expected it to happen with book but I actually really enjoyed it and like it so much I'll be adding my copy to my own collection rather than sending it to be rehomed.
The funny thing is though I'm not sure I can put my finger on what I liked the most about it. For me this book was all about the feeling you got by the time you'd finished reading it of overwhelming lovely girlyness.
I loved the main character Ted (even with her silly name) and found it easy to connect to her. I particularly loved the relationship she had with her older sister and the rest of her family. The way she connected with her sister was really touching especially in the scenes where she was supporting her through her illness.
I loved seeing how she handled being thrust into the high end fashion world from being scouted on the street to being flown to new york for a once in a career photoshot which was going to make her a huge star. What i liked most about her is that it all the situations she faced she was still this awesomely down to earth and lovely girl.
A fantastically engaging story with lovely morale and a touching storyline. Well worth a look and definitely recommended for comtemporary YA fiction lovers.
