Description
Scarlett is far from perfect.

She changes herself to please others.
She makes mistakes – over and over again.
She repeatedly goes back to people that have hurt her.

Scarlett has a tricky relationship with her mother and is desperate for people to like her.

She moves to London without a plan, but when she manages to land a job at a modelling agency she thinks that her life is finally on track.

Scarlett soon discovers that the fashion industry is far from what she had imagined and her life begins to spiral out of control. But at least people know who she is. She is starting to become someone.

And surely it’s better to be someone – even if it’s someone you hate?

Review
5 / 5

I was addicted to this book. I was fully involved with Scarlett’s life decisions and I couldn’t get enough!

I will warn you now there are a lot of scenes depicting characters taking drugs and engaged in sexual activities, but I felt it only added to the raw and gritty lifestyle that Scarlett was involved in. The reader needs to read these scenes to be completely absorbed, as though you are living it right there with Scarlett.

There were plenty of times where I was shaking my head at the decisions Scarlett made, as her life in the fashion world is self destructive and as you go through the book it just slowly gets worse. I was rooting for her though and desperately wanted her to see that what she was doing wasn’t right.

It doesn’t just show you the dark side of the fashion industry but it’s also a book about self discovery and that overwhelming need to be liked, whether that be with a boyfriend, at work or on social media. I felt sorry for Scarlett as that is all she wanted, she just didn’t have the support there for her.

Overall I gave this 5 stars because I could not put it down, I’m still thinking about it now and I could quite easily have read more chapters!
