wilt - or blossom ...
This first in the currently three-volume Violet series was an quick, enjoyable YA read for me. I have almost no interest in fashion or modeling, but I could relate to the characters and the storyline anyway. Trying to find one's place in the world and to understand where one belongs are universal human experiences, I think, whether you are a tall, skinny Chapel Hill High School senior who wants to be one of the popular girls - like Violet - or a quiet book-blogging accountant and mother of three - like me.
While some YA novels are profound reading experiences for me, others - like this one - are simply escapist fun, exactly what I need at times. I will definitely check out Violet By Design and Violet In Private!
