This book is a great find for girls that have struggled with self image. They can find they are not alone. That they don't need to feel like it's ok for others to walk on them. She struggles through most the book. I think that she gets over it to easy but it will help young girls see that there are ways and that they should be themself.
Honestly, this book really hit home for me. I was raised in a Christian home and suffered from an eating disorder. I've had many counselors and struggled a lot through my high school life fighting to be what everyone else saw as perfect. It took me too long to realize that I'm love for who I am.

This new adult novel is Tammy Gray's debut. In Shattered Rose, there are four main characters and they are all college students at Winsor.

I really enjoyed this book going to read book two x
There is a good message with this book, but to me it rambled on and on for many more pages than needed.
This was such a good book, I couldn't put it down. It was a very real and raw story that resonated with many struggles I went through in college. I think every parent of a teenage girl and every teenage girl should read this.
I love her books. She knows how to weave a story well. Lots of twist and turns I was not expecting. Finished this book in one day, I was sucked in! This is the first story in a trilogy that will have you screaming and crying and laughing at the same time.
