Product Description

Product Description

Landry Albright just wants to be one of the interesting girls at school who always have exciting things going on in their lives. She wants to stand out, but also wants to fit in, so she gives in when her two best friends, Ericka and Tori, push her into trying out for a teen reality show modeling competition with them. Landry goes in nervous, but impresses the judges enough to make it to the next round. However, Ericka and Tori get cut and basically "unfriend" her on Monday at school. Landry tries to make new friends, but gets caught up between wanting to be herself and conforming to who her new friends want her to be. Along the way she learns that modeling is nowhere as glamorous as it seems, how to deal with frenemies, a new crush, and that true friends see you for who you really are and like you because of it.

Welcome back to High School... for me anyway lol ^_^

We meet Landry, a 13yr old girl who's slowly discovering who she is. Her best friends, Ericka & Tori convince her to join a modeling tryout with them. After much deliberation she decides to tag along.

Things start to fall apart when Landry receives a call to continue on and her two friends don't.

I couldn't believe how fast her so called "best friends" turned their backs on her, even though they're the one's who begged her to go with them. Just shows how cruel teenagers can be and how hard things can be at that age. I really felt for her, losing people she cared about dearly, it's like a knife to the back!

Landry's a brave girl and takes each day as it comes, some are better than others. During these torturous days/weeks friendships begin to grow with a few other girls. So if you look at the positive, good things do come from bad.

I had to laugh out loud when Landry and her friend, Thalia had gym class (as we in Australia call it PE or Health), and they had all these excuses to get out of it. Took me back to my high school years and all the letters my mother would write to get me out of it or the excuses I used to use. Just as Landry did I used to loath dodge ball too lol and would deliberately stand in the way to get hit so I could sit out. My excuses didn't always work though haha! ;-)

All in all it's a great read, vibrant characters, a storyline so profound (if like me) will take you back to your own childhood memories, and will bring all those emotions back.

I really loved how it ended and I hope there's more to Landry's story to come. ^_^

Ericka, one of Landry’s two best friends insists on Landry and Tori going to the mall with her to enter the modeling tryouts to be on the American Ingénue show. Landry only very reluctantly agrees to enter when Ericka insists they both enter with her. Landry was surprised at the result of the tryouts, but more than shocked by her friends’ reaction.

I liked Landry’s down-to-earth nature. The story was written from her point of view, sharing her thoughts and feelings. I could really relate to her because I was always invisible, didn’t have many friends and didn’t feel like one of the pretty girls or have a great self-esteem either. I give her a lot of credit for getting up there and participating in the first modeling tryout in the first place. I know I wouldn’t have done it – no matter how much prodding from my friend!

The one person in the novel I didn’t like was Devon. She was a master manipulator. I found her to be very self-centred and demanding, always wanting to be the centre of attention. She was always talking down about people when they weren’t around and getting mad at her friends when they didn’t go along with what she wanted. She held grudges and refused to speak to them when she was mad at them.

I think the modeling tryout for American Ingénue and the following aftermath, while not pleasant for Landry were good for her in that they really helped her to grow up and understand what real friendship is, and how to be genuine with those around her. Some of the twists and turns in True Colors really showed how artificial or even two-faced people could be. Her experiences helped her to grow as a person, learn more about herself, be strong and believe in herself and reach out and make new true friends.
