True Colors - kindle ebook by Krysten Lindsay Hager

Landry Albright is an eighth grader who just wants to be noticed at school. She gets pushed into trying out for a reality TV show modeling competition with her two best friends. She goes through the audition and is just happy she didn’t fall on her face while walking the runway. Little does she know her life is about to change when she moves onto the next level of competition. Meanwhile, her friends don’t make the cut and they suddenly ice her out on Monday morning.

Landry tries making new friends with another contestant, Devon, in the contest who also goes to her school, but can their friendship handle the competition?

Landry hopes her big break could come at any moment, but soon sees there’s much more to modeling than just getting your hair done and looking pretty. She begins missing out on being with new friends like Ashanti, a girl who truly has Landry’s back. Landry also has the chance to have a boyfriend when she meets a boy named Vladi from another school.

Part of Landry wants to be famous (and have her hair look good for once), but part of her just wants to be accepted. She learns about friendships, loyalty, being true to yourself, and that a good hair conditioner doesn’t hurt.
