We’ve all seen the commercials – a pretty pop star promises your skin will be clear if you just . . . For fifteen-year-old Kaylin Bidwell, it doesn’t matter what they say. She knows the truth. Those products won't clear up her acne. She even proved it for a science fair project, hoping to win a spot at science camp with the guy she’s had a crush on for 20% of her life. But ...more

Acne! The bane of just about every teen's existence! (a few adults as well...)

I always hated being told I'll "outgrow" this - and sympathized hugely with the acne-prone main character. Especially since I never DID quite outgrow it...

While I was worried initially about her being so hung up on her appearance, I was pleased to see how quickly the story turned around and we find a love of science, a spirit of activism, and quite a bit more depth to this girl. She didn't accept the answers given but

I won this book in a giveaway...many thanks to Goodreads and the author, Jodi R. Moore for this opportunity. I have won 2 previous books and this is the first time an author sent me a personal message after I won the book. It made me feel important and I really looked forward to reading a book that the author actually cares what I think!

Onto the book!
I gave Let's Face It 3.5 stars but since GR does not have 1/2 stars, I will gladly round it up to a 4.
The story itself is appropriate content for
Jan 30, 2016 Jodi rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
From the review posted on Amazon by Yana Rodgers of Rutgers University Project on Economics and Children: "...This novel does a nice job in combining teen angst and romance with a clever story wrapped around a number of economic concepts, especially entrepreneurship, family-owned businesses, production decisions, marketing, and jobs. Middle-grade readers looking for substantive material with a light-hearted touch will enjoy this new work by Jodi Moore."

Confession: I had acne before the other kids in my class even knew what acne was. Even now in my late 20s, I still have it, and I'm still waiting to grow out of it.

So I related to this book on a pretty personal level. Some of the things Kaylin deals with because of her acne (like comparing herself to other girls, and wondering if boys don't like her because of heror because of her face) were things that I dealt with growing up too. S

I loved this book! As an adult female, I've struggled with skin care too! Since I was a teen. C'mon, it's something most of us have struggled with.

Kaylin knows what it's like too! Those little comments, that worry when you wake up in the morning and can't believe you have MORE skin problems!

But, that isn't all Kaylin is. She is also headstrong, determined and a little stubborn. She's found something she cares about and it strikes a cord in all of us! But she's not perfect, and I love that about

This book is just so darn cute. The characters are cute, the story is cute, the entire book is cute. It was the perfect read for me right now. Less hardcore, more cute. I really liked the character of Kaylin, even though I don't understand her like of science, because I always hated science. But even though she talked about science all the time, she did it in a very easy to understand way, not in a 'Haha, I'm smarter than you and I know al

I really enjoyed Moore’s book even though the story was clearly intended for a much younger audience than me.

Kaylin, the main character, is relatable and has just the right amount of naivety. The interactions between the characters, particularly Kaylin with her group of friends and her boy crushes, are very realistic.

One of the highlights of Let’s Face It was the focus on scientific research and the Human Microbiome Project, which is relevant to modern biology and was portrayed by Moore in an ac

First off, I would like to thank Jodi R. Moore, for sending me a copy of Let's Face It to honestly review. I love getting these kind of opportunities! Now, about the book...

Let's Face It is a humorous, inspiring story about teenage Kaylin, whose had enough of empty promises of "smooth, even-toned" skin from many facial cleansing products on the market. She's tired of products that might hide blemishes for a

This book has a very interesting topic for me, I usually wouldn't read a book of this topic, but it turns out the it is okay. This book at first glance looks like it is about a girl who has bad acne. When you acutely read it it turns out that it's about a girl who just wants to help people, mostly teens with their acne problem. It is very interesting to see how the internet can move things so fast and if people actually care about something it will happen. It has a slight romantic theme , but no ...more

What a clean, fun, smart, and last but not least inspirational story for teens! I really enjoyed how the story centers around the personality of the characters, they are presented clearly and thoughtfully. While there is teen romance, it goes beyond that and shows you that teenage girls are not just texting, and boy crazy! I received this book as a gift!

I won this book through Good reads and was delighted with it. What teen girl doesn't know what it feels like to have some kind of body issue they strive to overcome. Then throw in the hormones and budding new romance and well you got a great story to read.

In my opinion this book was really good. I liked how teens can relate to the challenges about acne that the main character faces.

I would also like to thank both good reads and the author for sending me an advanced copy of this book.
