Veronica is an insecure teen, which probably stems from her relationship with her parents, who are divorced. Exasperating her insecurity is her fitness fanatic mom, who encourages Veronica to lose weight, which makes Veronica all the more insecure about her appearance. So it’s not that surprising when Veronica trusts the wrong people at her summer job at a consignment shop. And yet, I completely understood why Veronica would easily trust at times while being cautious at others. Her character (and the others in Vintage Veronica) came across as very authentic. I quite enjoyed reading how she tested out her newly forming relationships and discovered that everyone has insecurities and secrets.
