's review

really liked it

5 Words: High-school, friends, fame, family, stars.

This is probably the least hilarious and most heart-breaking of these books.

Something in this one in particular just resonated with me, and I wanted to cry because I recognised my own past in these pages. Just without the modelling. Because high-school sucked.

I miss Lion Boy.

Quotes Cora Liked

Holly Smale
“Because here's the thing about a book: when you pick up a story, you put down your own”
Holly Smale, All That Glitters

Holly Smale
“There's a humpback whale in the ocean that sings at fifty-two hertz: too low for any other whale to hear. Scientists aren't sure if it's a genetic anomaly, or a sole survivor of an extinct species, or just a whale who accidentally learnt the wrong song. They just know that it's probably the loneliest mammal on earth.”
Holly Smale, All That Glitters
