For most of her adult life, Cecily Ross has compared herself to other women - and come up short. After a painful divorce from her emotionally abusive husband, Cecily returns to her hometown of Canyon, Texas, looking to heal.
But coming home isn't what she expects. In a town as small as Canyon, her pain is difficult to escape - especially with her model-perfect ex - sister-in-law working at the town's popular coffee-shop hangout. With help from her father, a support group, and an old friend who guides her to see her own strengths, Cecily may have a shot at overcoming her insecurities and learning to love again.
The true test comes when tragedy strikes, opening Cecily's eyes to the harmfulness of her distorted views on beauty - and giving her the perfect opportunity to find peace at last.

Every woman needs to read this.
This story addresses the lies that the American society tells them every day, and the lies they tell themselves. It does have some very sad parts. I would not recommend it for children. I would even recommend that you read it before allowing a teen to read it, though I think many teen girls could benefit from it.
If you have a daughter, I would strongly recommend that you read this book.

amazing story, so powerful, though provoking and inspiring. Whether you've suffered the traumatic levels of abuse and self doubt that the characters reveal or, fail to see how beautiful you are or know someone who needs self assurance, this book could help.
