In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and the upcoming Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets, underlining that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She’s learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they’re not alone.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your voice! It’s time to live your life unfiltered.
I got this book because I am a huge fan of Lily’s acting career and of her as a human in general and I was so happy to read something wrote by her. In Unfiltered, Lily shares her past with her readers , along with some pictures to help set the mood, in hope that people can identify and even learn from her experiences.
Her writing is so raw and so genuine , fact that attracts you to this book even more . She shares her journey that led her to where she is today and I couldn’t help but respect her even more because if it. As Lily says in her book : “Our greatest triumphs in life don’t come without having to navigate both the ups and the downs”.
This book full of wisdom is not to be taken lightly but rather reread many times as you will learn something new from it every time .I am so happy that Lily had the courage to share her story and I hope I hear nothing but great things from her in the future.Here’s to many more shared stories from this wonderful human being !
