I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book, I feel it really captured the feel of a first love. I loved Haylah, I thought she was well written and brilliantly funny. Her feminist approach to loving herself regardless of her struggles with her own body image was just perfect. Love yourselves ladies, you are beautiful.
I really related to Haylah because I also turn to self deprecating humor and make fun of myself before anyone else can. I really saw myself in her. This book really explores the “you are your own worst critic”’ saying. You could really feel her internalized pain and how hard she was fighting with the image she has of herself more so than what others thought about her.
I really loved the story arc in this, it was raw, realistic, and just a good read. I recommend this to anyone who has a teen daughter or is a teen themselves!
Thank you kindly to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for this review copy.
Greetings and Salutations my dear friends and welcome to Feathered Fables! My name is Sari and I am a bird obsessed book lover.

I started Feathered Fables in an attempt to venture out into the book world. I tend to read (and write) mostly young adult fiction, historical fiction, mystery, thriller, and romance. I do hope you will follow my journey on this site and stick around for a bit!
