I was sent this book by the author in return for an honest review.
This isn't a book about the fashion world.
It is a book about life and lessons and how to overcome what you think will destroy you. It just happens to be set around the fashion world - a world which seemingly makes it all worse.
You know the Shadows yourself, of course. Everyone has them, lurking below the surface ready to bring you down, ready to take you to your lowest point and make you doubt everyone and everything and most especially yourself. Arabelle's Shadows lets you know someone else's experience with the darkness inside, it shows you that you're not alone.
I love the style of this book - it's so personal with its informal style, it's like reading a private diary, and you feel indulged by this as a reader - if slightly guilty for reading it.
