My review of So Lucky
Oh where do I start with this fabulously honest and emotional book. I absolutely loved it. It made me laugh, it made me cry at times and it had me nodding my head, saying, 'oh my god, yes, that is so true'. It's a breath of fresh air with its straight talking and down to earth characters. I didn't want to put this book down.
We meet three very different women in this sfory, but what becomes very clear is that they are all living a very different life to the one that is shown on the surface. The powerful message here is that we shouldn't judge a woman by her cover, and this is such a strong and empowering message for everyone. Those outward appearances can be so very deceptive. All three women I found to be incredibly likeable and engaging. All of their stories rang so very true. They spoke of the insecurities that they felt, some to do with their physical appearance, their role in life as a mother, relationship difficulties, juggling motherhood with a career and how the image we present of ourselves on social media may not be true at all. It's a thought provoking read. So Lucky really is a heart -warning story about female friendship and support. It explores mental health issues related to body image, sexuality and social media AND I loved it for its honesty and rawness. So Lucky is a book that will resonate with so many women. It's about those insecurities that we all have, but the overall message is one of hope and love. This is a very special book. With thanks to the publisher for the Advanced Reader Copy.
