Torrey, also known as Beautystarz15 online, had cultivated a loyal following after making beauty videos for teens. One day, as she was on her way to a photo shoot, she and her sister Miranda had a fight and shortly after, a drunk driver killed her. Overcome with grief, she moves to Texas with her parents and forced herself to forget about her old self. Meanwhile, someone posted a video of the sisters fighting before the accident and so the netizen’s sympathy quickly morphed to disgust as they directed their hate towards Torrey. At school, she tries desperately to fit in, but falling for Luis stuck a big wrench in that mission, forcing her to question her true feelings. This novel honestly portrayed the grief and self-discovery of Torrey in a way that immersed the readers completely into the story. The plot was interesting and engaging, making me constantly want more. The characters were likable, but I personally disliked how Torrey acted in certain cases. To me, she seemed like a wannabe that only cared for popularity. Luckily, near the end, my opinion of her changed and overall, this was a nice read. Rating:4/5
