Summary from Goodreads: In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and the upcoming Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets, underlining that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She's learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they’re not alone.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your voice! It’s time to live your life unfiltered.
Review: As I was reading this book, there was a picture of Lily and her father. I said to myself, "That man looks familiar." Oh yes, turns out Lily's dad is the one and only Phil Collins. His music had a big part of my life, but that, of course, has nothing to do with this book review. It is only a tasty little tidbit.
It's always interesting to see how the other half lives. The rich and the famous. We watch them through a looking glass. Their lives seem so perfect and amazing. We never see the dirty side. The deep dark secrets that really make these people who they are. Turns out Lily Collins is more than just the girl with the amazing eye brows, she has an eating disorder.
This book takes us through her struggles, early life and how she overcame her eating disorder to become a stronger person. A quick read with a real story to tell.
