Summary: “I'm living through the ugly.”
I've done it this time. I've really screwed up. I've made a mistake, and I'm afraid that it's going to cost me everything – my family, my career and most importantly, Emmett Sinclair. He saw the beauty inside of me, looked past what I was becoming on the outside, and gave me his trust. Everyone thinks I tried to kill myself; I think I made a mistake. They all say I'm halfway to the grave; I say I've been reborn. Nobody knows what I'm going through, so I'm going to have to fight harder than ever before. The problem is, I no longer know exactly what it is I'm fighting for.Title: Color Me Pretty

Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book a little bit better than book one, well a whole star better lol. I think because Claie is still struggling but she is in a better place, a happier place. C.M. Stunich is such an amazing writer that when you pick up her books you only put it down when you have finished it. This is what happened with Clor Me Pretty, I flew through it and when I finished I was left wanting more. I love that the story contains a darker topic, well two darker topics now, but it still has a silver lining. Also I love that each of C.M.'s books has an underlying message.
I love Claire even more in this novel. I'm glad that she finally realized that what she had been doing was destroying her and that she finally wants to get better or try to. I did like how realistic the story was, there is no cure for anorexia it is a disease that stays with you forever, as evidenced by Claire's "angel/ demon" on her shoulder each telling her something different. I'm glad that Kylie was in the picture too. I fell that without each others support at least one or both of them may not have made it. I found Kylie to be a very intriguing charcater and I wouldn't mind her having a spin off novel ;)
C.M. Hits another one out of the park! This is one of the reasons that she is one of my favourite authors. If you haven't already read this series you need to go grab it, you won't be disappointed. Hopefully we eventually get more of Claire and Emmett's story and like I hinted at Kylie's lol.
