Mirror, mirror … who’s the fairest of them all?
I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn’t grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all ‘mean girls.’
And those mean girls were right – it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world – and I knew the answer would never be me.
The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.
The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.
Well, that’s definitely not Willow Tate.
No. That will never be me.
Because I’m completely imperfect.
And … I hate myself.
I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.
Every woman(and some men) have had some sort of body image issue at some point in their lives, within this book Harper Sloan has given us a story we con relate to in some way or another.
Willow’s character is completely brainwashed and beaten down by her family, she is stuck in her own head and unable to see ant beauty in herself. While Kane star actor and all people seem to see is his outward beauty and his bank balance, he is surrounded by people but inside he is lonely, he needs someone real that will see him as a man not the star.
Willow’s character tells a story of self discovery and moving forward, learning that loving yourself isn’t always easy but so worth it.
Perfectly Imperfect is emotional and gives you all the feels, it makes you think on how you look at yourself and the choices you make.
Harper Sloan has a wonderful writing style and Perfectly Imperfect was a great read for me.
I was drawn in right from the start and was immediately invested in the lovable characters and I devoured the story quickly.
