This book was a piece of heart and something I would see my soul to read again. It was so beautiful and heart shattering at the same time as Evelyn experiences love, cheat, betrayal, glamor, power, fame, money, and heartbreak all at the same time. Evelyn’s story discusses her rise in Hollywood along with the challenges, media, the public eye, sexualization, and more. She demonstrates what it was like being  a powerful woman in a demanding and toxic environment at an early time. She has 7 marriages, in which she discusses each love or reason.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding is a thrilling story about a group of young boys found stranded on a deserted island. Together they found themselves developing rules and a system of organization to try and remain civil. But without “grownups,” their attempt to govern themselves becomes violent and unorthodox. Although this novel is a challenging read, it is a story all children have dreamed about before. Its bone-chilling reality, however, makes readers second guess their fantasy of living on an island.
