Violet in Private Review.



Violet Greenfield knows she's supposed to be a super-confident nineteen-year-old because she's done runway shows in New York and internationally. But now that she's finally headed to college, she's afraid she'll turn back into that girl who blended into the walls in high school. Vassar is just two hours away from New York City—her friends in fashion think she's crazy to stop modeling now. And her old friend Roger is there...but things have been weird ever since they kissed. The real question is if she's not going to be "Violet on the Runway" anymore...who is she?


Violet in Private was wonderful. It was the only way I could think of the third book being. Melissa Walker did an amazing job of keeping the characters the same and continuing the series nicely. I was so excited to get this book - I read it a while ago, actually, but I can still remember how I felt reading it, which is amazing.

One thing that I love about reading the Violet series is that I know the book will most likely turn out good. But I still feel whatever Violet is feeling at certain times. If Violet is depressed and doesn't know what to do, then I will feel that way. I will feel like there isn't a way for her to get out of her situation, that that is the end for her or her career, or whatever it may be.

I really can't find anything wrong with Violet in Private. There were a few grammatical errors, but I had an ARC, so I'm sure they were fixed for the final copy.

If you haven't read the Violet series, I highly recommend it. It is one of my favorite series out there right now. It really supports self-confidence, healthy body image, and just being yourself. The series really pushes just being yourself and it's a great message. Teens today need to realize that you don't always have to be perfect and you don't have to be like everyone else - it's okay to be a little different sometimes.



Also, I can't quote. I had an ARC. Sorry. There are lots of 'em that I wanted to put here. =]

hope.

I loved this book. I got an early copy of it (about two weeks ahead of the release date) and thought it was amazing. I can relate to Violet in so many ways, but I was also happy to get an inside look into a world I really didn't know about; the modeling industry.

I have been passing this book around for a while now, and I know all my friends enjoy it just as much as I did. Fantastic writing!

I haven't read VIP yet, but I can safely and confidently agree with you that it's amazing -- the first two were, and Melissa is a genius! What a sweet review. I'm even more excited to read it than I was before. :)

Thanks for the review. I enjoyed your comments at the end about how you think it is a positive influence today for teens to accept themselves as they are. I definately need to read these books! What do you think the youngest age audience for these books are? I have 6th graders, so I was thinking that they are probably aimed at closer to 8th/high school/college, but since I haven't read them I wasn't sure...

Fabulous review! I can't wait to read this series... I love the "be yourself" message... over the years I've learned that there's nothing better than to be yourself... and I hope everyone gets to experience being confident and happy with just being themselves...
Thanks for the review!
