Product description

Product Description

Every day I walked down the sidewalk to school and wished I were one of the interesting popular girls who ran up with exciting news. Just once I’d like to be one of those girls instead of the being the one who didn’t get invited to things because people “forgot” about me.

Landry gets pushed into trying out for the American Ingénue reality show modeling competition with her two best friends. She doesn’t think she stands a chance, but she advances to the next level in the competition and her friends ignore her when they get cut.

Enter the gorgeous Devon, who also makes the first cut and includes Landry in her clique. Devon becomes the perfect best friend, but can their friendship survive the competition?

Landry hopes her big break could come at any moment, but soon sees there’s much more to modeling. She begins missing out on being with friends and has the chance to have a boyfriend when she meets a boy named Vladi from another school.

Part of Landry wants to be famous (and have her hair look good for once), but part of her just wants to be accepted. She learns about friendships, being true to yourself, and that a good hair conditioner doesn’t hurt.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pulling for Landry 15 January 2015
By IowaAngela - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book brought back memories of middle school and All. The DRAMA. that comes with it. I was reading Landry's story and all of a sudden I was remembering when similar things happened. It made me realize that there is so much bullying going on in middle school, we do so much to try to fit in with our group of friends that we will take whatever it is they dish out with a smile.
This is not just great for middle school kids to read but for their parents. It would help them to understand the sort of things that do go on. Middle school was so long ago that it is something that often gets forgotten by the time you have a child of your own going through it.

I am pulling for Landry, I am looking forward to the rest of her story.

I am a Paranormal lover but this book actually caught my attention and made me want to buy it and read it. So, I did and I am glad I did!!! This book is absolutely amazing!!!!
I loved the plot the most!!! I so understood Landry was going through. It's tough being in school and being ridiculed by everyone in your class. I highly recommend this book to all ages from teen all the way up. It will intrigue and interest you from beginning to end and I give this author five stars and more for the characters and story line!!! Simply awesome

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read! 28 June 2014
By S. J. Henderson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a light read that I think a lot of middle school readers can identify with--the struggle to fit in, the cliques, the boy-crazy friends, the lack of confidence by several of the characters in the book. There was a good message here, that one shouldn't limit themselves to just one or two friends, but look for something redeeming in all different groups of friends.

I felt like the ending was a little rushed, and I would have liked more resolution with Landry's family situation; however, I can see where the book could've become quite heavy and depressing quickly. Perhaps Ms. Hager is paving way for a sequel?

Nicely done, looking forward to reading more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story for young teens 4 October 2014
By Michael J. Coyle - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author has a great understanding of the anxieties of young teens. She has an entertaining writing style. It's fast paced, appropriate for the age group, and has some original cute phrases. The story is written for middle school and junior high school girls. I am not from that group, but I liked the story. I do recommend that parents read this book, too. It will give you an idea of how your teen thinks and might give you a chance to discuss the characters and their decisions with you teen.
