Review: The Daughters

Three best friends know how hard life in the spotlight (or in your parent's shadow) can be and the rules that can't be broken. Lizzie, the daughter of the hottest supermodel, hates having her picture taken. She looks so incredibly awkward comparatively to her ultra famous mother. Plus she hates it when her mother makes them pose together because Lizzie knows she's not beautiful, but she hates having other people acknowledge the fact.

After a huge fight with her mother over an accidental slip up that makes it on to youtube, Lizzie finds herself at a crossroads. She meets a photographer who sees something uniquely beautiful about her face - a new type of pretty with a natural look. On a whim, Lizzie agrees to become her model. Now Lizzie's loving the camera and the modeling work, but she is too afraid to tell her mother the truth. Will her mother accept Lizzie's decision after their fight about posing for photos together?

My Thoughts: I devoured this book - it's an addicting read filled with drama and friendship. I liked the twist having the parents as famous, not the daughters. Although the daughters will come into their own identities, they're struggling finding a separation from their parents. I can't wait for the next book due out in November.

Fun Facts: Joanna Philbin is Regis's daughter.

The Cover: This might not be final art work, but I like the contrast. The girls and colors are a bit different, but it's pretty much the same.

Source: I requested this from Little Brown & Company
