First of all, I loved filling out all the little info about myself, making cute little collages, and was so inspired by all the inspirations!
I was a very..."unique" individual (I was basically a loser who dressed weird and had no friends) and this book served a lot of purpose for me. For one, it is filled with facts about taking care of yourself, etiquette, and DIY projects that may seem over-the-top or silly to adults, but were so awesome to myself as a teen! I found all the pictures of Jennifur so inspiring, (I especially loved the one with her collaged suitcase, totally made a ton of those myself) and her words really truly words to live by.
Lets face it, when you're 16 the world is working against you, you want nothing more than to live in your dreams and fantasize about the future, picturing yourself as a glamorous movie star running off to Hollywood to be the star of your own silent film. Or was that just me? All the same, this book is perfect for any young girl with a bit of interest in the unique, the glamorous, the vintage...it inspired me to do so many things - start my own journals filled with all sorts of pictures, makeover my bedroom to feel like a boudoir, even start my own 'zine!
I recommend this to any girl with her head in the clouds, any girl who has wished upon a star and truly believes it will come true, any girl who needs a little hope that life is so much better than it is at 14, 15, or 16. It will inspire, I promise.
It still sits on my bookshelf, and I still love to flip through it every now and then.

This book really helped me to embrace my quirkiness. I learned to realize that it was okay if I wasn't like the others. I wish it was still in print.Published on December 27, 2011 by L. Reynolds
