My Not So Perfect Life

Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Maybe if this younger generation stopped posting everything that goes on in their lives on social media, they actually may realize that not everything that is out there is exactly what it seems. People lie. The media lies. All is not right in the world. Thank you – I’m getting off my soapbox now! Seriously, Cat/Katie is so obsessed with what everyone thinks of her and how they think her life is, that she becomes too wrapped up in that fake world and doesn’t realize that everyone has issues, people only want to show the great in their lives, blah blah blah. At least she seems to finally realize this in the end and gets her act together.
What I loved: The glamping aspect of the story is so spot on and sounds amazing. Mick and Biddy are almost too good to be true – the parents everyone probably dreams of having. But what are they going to do with the business during the months with crummy weather?
What I didn’t love: Cat starts the story off as a typical young adult at her first job – there is so much she needs to learn about life, work, friends, everything that, as an older reader, it’s a little annoying at first. As the story progresses she does turn into a great woman with a really good head on her shoulders – even if it is dyed blue…
What I learned: Not everything is as it seems on the internet.
Overall Grade: B
