All of Emily's friends seem so perfect. They're skinny and pretty, and, of course, are fun and flirty to boot. Especially Leah, who, as Emily remembers it, used to be the chubby girl in school. Now Leah is on her way toward becoming America's next top model. Literally. Why can't I look like her? Emily loathes her slightly overweight body, her insecure personality, and sometimes even her "perfect" friends.
As Leah and Becca, another gorgeous friend, discuss the latest fashion trends and "magical thigh-reducing creams," Emily's secret bitterness begins to eat away at her soul. Emily takes drastic measures putting herself in danger of death, which she will only avoid if she comes to terms with the issues weighing down her heavy heart.
One of my favorite books!| Posted October 08, 2009
I love Melody Carlson's True Colors books! This one is by far my favorite though. I love how she exposed the big problem of anorexia and bulimia in this book. I have read it 3 times and plan to read it again!

This book was really good! It really caught my attention. It really shows how teens feel pressured to look like every one else. How they want to be skinny and fit in. These series of books are some of the BEST books I've ever read!
