Vain - Fisher Amelie This book took me by surprise. I don't feel as though the description does the book justice, nor does it explain exactly what you are in for when you open the cover. To be fair though, I might have passed it by had I known and I would have missed out. The concise summary is that this book is about Sophie, a spoiled, weathy, entitled, vain girl being forced to see the harsh reality that many people live daily. The experience leaves permanent scars, but also leaves her beautifully changed. To me, her relationship with Ian is a secondary storyline, but one that serves to enhance the overall story. I did have a bit of trouble with how everything was wrapped up in a nice, neat bow at the end. I felt like both Sophie and Ian were at odds with their parents and suddenly everything was resolved in a few short sentences. I would've liked more detail. However, this in no way detracts from the book. It truly is a beautiful story and well worth the money.
