"A back-to-school treat... The positive message and cheery tone will make this title an instant hit with teens." - School Library Journal We are living in the age of the image - the perfect image. From the constant bombardment of air-brushed photos, to the dubious lifestyle choices promoted by celebrities and the obsession with social media, young women are under pressure as never before to project a persona of perfection. And this is having a catastrophic effect, with girls as young as seven developing eating disorders and female self-loathing reaching epidemic proportions. From the ghostwriter behind the bestselling Girl Online, comes True Face, a book that shows you how to resist the pressure from the "perfection police" and be true to yourself. In chapters dealing with body image, bullying, social media, love, sex, and more, Siobhan Curham encourages young women and girls to be honest, dream big, and create lives that are happy and fulfilling. "Keep Calm and Carry On is replaced by a new mantra: "Forget the Fake and Keep it Real". This book is a breath of fresh air. Perfect for ages 13+ - and for the Girls fan in her 20s/30s too.
