A Different Kind of Love Story ~ Landra Young Hughes

This is a true story about Landra and her dealing with faith, family, eating disorder and allowing herself to let God lead the way. When Landra's father (a well known Pastor) makes the headlines about a certain scenario.  Landra has to deal with the shame, gossip, lies and trying to understand why all of this happening.   She talks about how she and her family had to deal with all this while still being a teenager, just the time in your life when you are trying to be accepted.  She uses her own experiences and the word of God to teach us how to overcome feeling insecure, growing up, eating disorders, family issues and so much more.  Her way she touches the reader is by being raw and honest about her own emotions and dealings.

I would recommend this any teenager and anyone dealing with self esteem and acceptance.  She is so honest and true to the readers that you can't stop reading.  I like how she uses reality tv shows as an example of how she is just like anyone else... for her first book and her father being a famous pastor and author, she as big shoes to fill, but she does do a good job with this one and reaches her reader in an easy way. The subjects she writes about is hard, but she has the passion in her writing.
