My Review:

This was a story of self discovery and realization. Sophie lives a charmed life. Or so she described. From the outside looking in its sad. Everything is superficial. She isn't truly loved and doesn't really know what love is herself. She bounds for one thing to another ruling with false friendships. She was one of those characters that you want to dislike, but right form the start you pity them. She had nothing real in her life but her self image that she creates by never being denied.

I wanted for nothing. Except attention.

This is the life she lives. She puts on a mask and fights to get the only type of attention she can. The bad kind. Boys, Drugs, Parties, "Friends". She dominates in the categories and gets in the trouble to match it.
My lingerie probably costs more than your entire wardrobe,” I spit out at the short, stocky one who eyed me with disdain.
Her attitude itself just irks you at the begninning. It is the ultimate barrier for caring at all. you get peeks of the girl she wishes she was, but she doesn't realize it yet. She puts on that face and isn't ever denied. Until she is. Being sent away from this life was exactly what she needed, even if she didn't think so. Arriving in Africa is a shock to her but in a goodway. The moment Sophie meets Ian her life is changed. She knows it and so do you. Her world is Rocked even further the second she meets the children's eyes. It is the end all for becoming another person. She learns what it really is to have nothing and everything. Ian is brutally honest to her, but he is also the most caring any boy has ever truly been. Being there at the orphanage Sophie sees what LOVE really is. She is cared for for the first time in her life and it opens her eyes to a lot of things. She sees the things in her life that she never noticed and evolves into a better person. The person she wants to be, was meant to be. This book is just exhilerating. It puts you through the loops and is a page turner. With the Love story. The self discovery, and the underlying Orphanage's storyline you are never lacking. We are not let down with the writing in the least bit. The conversations are easy to follow and the characters are amazingly devleoped. I haven't read a book like this ever. Its a life changer and it really opens your eyes. Just like Sophie you will begin to look at things a whole new way. If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. It should be in a whole new category. For real. I just can't put into words how wonderful this book is. You need to read it. Scratch that. You WILL read it. It just must happen. And don't miss out on the other books by this amazing author. They are all life changers and eye openers <3

Synopsis:

If you’re looking for a story about a good, humble girl, who’s been hurt by someone she thought she could trust, only to find out she’s not as vulnerable as she thought she was and discovers an empowering side of herself that falls in love with the guy who helps her find that self, blah, blah, blah...then you’re gonna’ hate my story. Because mine is not the story you read every time you bend back the cover of the latest trend novel. It’s not the “I can do anything, now that I’ve found you/I’m misunderstood but one day you’ll find me irresistible because of it” tale. Why? Because, if I was being honest with you, I’m a complete witch. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a friend using, drug abusing, sex addict from Los Angeles. I’m every girlfriend’s worst nightmare and every boy’s fantasy. I’m Sophie Price...And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most envied girl to the girl no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
