Flawless Book Review

I have a really good book to tell you about called Flawless written by Jennifer McGill-Sadera.
Nobody's perfect. Except Lia Copeland. She's flawless. And worshipped. And hated. From her perfectly proportioned figure and enviable bone structure to her instinctual talent for clothing design and cavalier attitude, Lia's the woman every other woman wants to be and every man wants to have. Catapulted from sigh-maker in the high-school halls to superstardom in the fashion world, she makes it look easy. A girl like that has everything; every reason to be happy. Then why does Lia Copeland just want everyone to leave her the hell alone?  
Behind the dazzling light of Lia's successes is a dark tale of fear, betrayal and confusion, leaving her with unfathomable anger--and so many questions. Chief among them: why is apathy threatening to take over her life? She forces herself to look to both inside and outside sources of the problem, leading her through a maze of emotions and relationships as she carries out her quest.  
From the friends of Lia's youth--her best friend, Maddie, her tragic kinship with Doug, the tangled love triangle between her, Doug's cousin, Chad, and her pal, Wilson--to her later-day bond with her mentor, Jade, and therapist Ruth, Lia discovers the necessity of friendship and forgiveness in order to reach a life-affirming resolution.  
A story about the choices made in the wake of travail and tragedy, it explores relationships with all their messy and marvelous moments and magnifies the beauty, wonder and endurance of first love.
This was such a heartbreaking story about a group of friends who lose one of them to suicide. This affected them for a very long time. But, Lia especially because she always felt like she should have done something to help him but didn't.
But, there was something going on with her and she never fully understood and something always nagged her about certain phobia's she had about the beach and men but it wasn't until later in life when another friend is taken from them that she finally has a breakthrough. Even after years of therapy, it never dawned on her what happened when she was a child. Her whole childhood is like a blank slip of paper and finally she is ready to unlock that memory.
This was a really good book and you will love the characters and the journey of Lia especially. It does have some very sad parts but it also has some really good parts and once Lia understands why she is the way she is, she is set free to live in her life to the fullest.
Join her in this journey to uncover her past so that she can live for the present and future.
Happy Reading!
