Book review: Let's Be Real: Living life as an open and honest you by Natasha Bure

This is a great book that parents can give their pre-teen and teen kids, in particular their teenage daughters, who may think that the world is a less than perfect place (which it is). Reading this book can help your teenagers to understand that we all have problems, they are not alone with their problems and life goes on. Even if some youtube celebrity or daughter of a TV star like Natasha Bure may have the seemingly perfect life, she still struggles with the same issues that any young woman or girl struggles with. There are pimples, boyfriend breakups and plenty of self-doubt. But life goes on and tomorrow is a new day that brings new opportunity make things better and see something positive. It is that positive attitude that I really enjoyed in this book and I found so refreshing as a message for teenagers.
While Natasha is certainly benefiting from a financially stable upbringing and parents that can provide her with a lot - not just time, but also material things. She still manages to write a book that I find in the language used and the issues tackled to be good for teenagers. I think parents should discuss with their kids that the material benefits that Natasha enjoyed set her apart from most kids in the US and the rest of the world, but that material things are not what happiness is about and the reader should focus on a message of a positive attitude towards tomorrow.
