Book Review-True Colors, Krysten Lindsey Hager
I was offered to read this book for an honest review. My review is 5 stars. Krysten captures the teenage girl today. The struggles are real, the issues are something children have been dealing with since before I was a teen, and oddly-Krysten captures the readers! I was prepared for another "Mean Girls" story. This is NOT that. This is the real story of teenage girls! You watch Laundry flower into a young woman who finds out trust is an invaluable item to find, and friendships are hard to seek genuine realism in. You will learn about relationships with not just friends, but peers, boys, and others. The details put into the book will draw you, and make the story so much more realistic. Krysten expresses emotions beautifully through her writing, and the story flows flawlessly. I enjoyed the teenage "drama" because I knew going in, the book was geared toward middle grade readers. It will peak your child's attention, give them something to think about, and maybe even spark some hard discussions with their friends! Having a teenage boy, and working around preteen/teenagers of both genders I feel confident saying Krysten is sharing some beautiful TRUE COLORS! **MUST READ for those 10-15 year olds". Slide it under your Christmas tree today!
