Review: Flawd by Emily-Anne Rigal

When you look in the mirror and only see your flaws, it can be hard to be your best self.

FLAWD is your new cheerleader—an energetic guide to seeing your flaws as the doorway to something more.

Through dynamic stories and advice from teens and celebrities around the world, FLAWD will help you to:
  • SEE yourself as perfectly imperfect.
  • TREAT life as playfully as possible.
  • THINK about what really matters.
  • EMBRACE all that makes you, YOU.
  • UNDERSTAND influence and how to use it.
  • KNOW you can be part of a flawd and powerful transformation.
Even though we exist in a culture that thrives on bullying us into believing we're never good enough as we are, FLAWD affirms that you are good enough, ready enough and important enough to be a flawd light in the world.

Are you ready to become fearless with your flaws and change the world by being yourself? Then FLAWD is the book for you.

Received for review.

This was such a cute little book and certainly a fast read.  It's a great idea for the target audience of teens, and perhaps (to a lesser degree) for adults as well.

I really liked the formatting and extensive use of graphic as well as fun fonts and colors which made the book quite enjoyable to read.  The friendly feel of it draws you in immediately.

The message itself - that everyone is flawed and that you should accept yourself despite your flaws - is a positive one, but can be rather difficult to actually implement in real life.  Yes, it's lovely you that you know you have flaws but to force yourself to feel that you're fabulous anyway just seems a bit too simplistic and wandering into Bridget Jones territory.

Overall, the book is a pleasant read and may work for some, but it is not a cure-all and should not be taken as such.  I certainly recommend it to those teens who are looking for something light and uplifting to possibly improve their lives.

★★★☆☆ = Liked It
