This book looks at the somewhat fake life of a WAG and sports stars. The life that they lead is always geared towards what they would look like in the media and the clothes that they wear must reflect that, as el as the money that they spend on such things as weddings.
But what happens when the apparent beautiful life shatters? What part does the media play in the story and how ‘real’ is what hey tell the masses of their readers?
And of course, we do have a heroine who is hiding a secret from all except her therapist and a bot she used to know – who is hiding a secret himself. the secret that caused him to crash out of her life when they were still teeanagers.
the story does tell of the struggle it can be to overcome a traumatic event, but maybe more could have been made of it – and also it is not quite clear just exactly what happened. Similarly, the events that led up to the boy’s sudden exit could have been worth more than a brief para or two. these two things would / could, in my view, have made this a stronger story with some morality messages that would have enhanced its worth. for me, the lack of this element downgraded the book by a star.
