Make sure to have a lot of Kleenex handy when you get to the end of this book. I could not put this book down especially when I got to the last 100 pages. I wasn’t sure what an influencer for social media really was until I got into this story. I learned from this story that we each have different sides that we show to different people. This also shows that people can change who they are and that it is a long drawn out process. It shows that this process is worth it in the long run. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this a five out of five stars.
Molly McKenzie’s bright personality and on-trend fashion and beauty advice have earned her an impressive social media following, as well as a shiny monthly paycheck. When her manager-turned-boyfriend tells her of an upcoming audition to host a makeover show for America’s underprivileged youth, all her dreams finally seem to be coming true. There’s just one catch: she has little experience interacting with people in need.
To gain an edge on her competitors, she applies to volunteer at a transitional program for aged-out foster kids during summer, only the program’s director, Silas Whittaker, doesn’t find her as charming as her followers do. But since forfeiting a goal has never been her style, Molly’s only option is to accept the terms Silas lays out and submit to his rules–even the most ridiculous ones pertaining to social media.
Soon as the residents of the home become more than a means to pad her career resume, and Silas becomes more than an obstacle on her path to fame, her once-narrow focus expands to include the deep needs of those she’s serving… and perhaps the ones she’s neglected inside herself as well. It took years to build her platform, but only one summer to discover what really matters most.
