Unfiltered by: Lily Collins

Blurb

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.

Really, I give this a 4.5, but seeing as how there aren't half stars, I'll round up.

This was an interesting book that dealt with important issues. I love how Lily addresses other young women, and how she wasn't afraid to put herself out there, mistakes and all. I think there's definitely a lot of very important material in here, and if I'd still been in high school reading this (or even still in the midst of some of those insecurities she speaks about) I would find this extremely beneficial.

Also, just realized I finished this just as the clock struck midnight and it's now her birthday. :) Ironic.
