This book's reality and beauty is astounding. It's amazing that she fit so much ugly truth into such a pretty and simple package. This book is the embodiment of society's desires. The way Libba Bray articulates the horrors of being a female in this screwed up and magazine-driven world is magnificent and as true and satirical it is, you can't help wishing it weren't. Bray has brought light to a world that is often made trivial with a comedic flavor. I recommend this to anyone who is literate enough to read it.
