Outside In - Chrissie Keighery - Reviewed by Jane
Have you ever thought that everyone else seems to have their lives sorted and your life is not quite how you'd like it to be? 'Outside In' gives an insight into the 'perfect' lives of others. The masks people wear to appear cheery and 'together' in public hide a multitude of issues and insecurities that are tucked away neatly out of the sight of others. This book tells the story from many different points of view and opened my eyes afresh to take the time to look below the surface of others.
I enjoyed 'Outside In' because it made me stop and think about the fact that people are not always what / who they appear to be. A good book for students who want to be more aware of others around them. I would recommend this book mainly for girls aged 12 and over. My rating: 7/10
