World begins to change Vanessa discovers that her own self worth is than the scores of her talent performance and her interview answers and that she doesn't need a crown to be comfortable in her own skin and see her own true beaut. This book was Crazy Good The characters the plot and the writing were all well craftedOh how I loved Vanessa Her story had its differences yet it was so similar and familiar to my own I only wish I had been as brave as her when I was her age Her honesty and vulnerability were so refreshing to see I also loved how she was able to accept responsibility for her mistakes and apologize Her relationship with TJ was probably my favorite I wish every student could have a Mrs Walton I m grateful that I didThis book covers so much from fatphobia to homophobia alcoholism povertylow income and Tami Charles tackles these subjects in an honest way that is ideal for all ages I m so glad stories like this are being written and published I would highly recommend this
