The Lovereading4Kids comment

In chapters dealing with body image, bullying, social media, love, sex and more, Siobhan Curham encourages young women and girls to be honest, dream big, and create lives that are happy and fulfilling. Keep Calm and Carry On is replaced by a new mantra: Forget the Fake and Keep it Real.

This book is a breath of fresh air for it shows you how to resist the pressure from the 'perfection police' and take off the masks you wear to proudly reveal your true self to the world.

Synopsis

True Face by Siobhan Curham

We are living in the age of the image - the perfect image. From the constant bombardment of air-brushed photos, to the dubious lifestyle choices promoted by celebrities and the obsession with social media, young women are under pressure as never before to project a persona of perfection. And this is having a catastrophic effect, with girls as young as seven developing eating disorders and female self-loathing reaching epidemic proportions.

About the Author

Siobhan Curham

Siobhan Curham has many strings to her bow. She is an editor for Hothouse fiction, a life-coach, the author of several adult novels and she runs writing workshops for young people. Her first YA novel, Dear Dylan, won the YoungMinds Award and her second, Finding Cherokee Brown, has received high praise. The Shipwrecked saga is a new, edgier strand to Siobhan’s writing, for slightly older YA readers.
