I am such a sucker for stories about boy-girl best friends. Why that is, well, you will never know (haha).
All That Glitters is so much more than what you’d expect it to be because of the title. You’d think it’s just about the stars and shiny 24K bracelet charms and champagnes and anything that pass up as real-world pixie dusts. But since it is Miss Ines we’re talking about here, it has to be about what each of those represents. It’s about dreams that you dare to reach and what you are willing to do to get them. It’s about your world, how much it means to you, and this whole new world that captures your very soul. It’s about love and friendship, about your “wish” guy coming to life, staring at you right in the face, and about that other guy who’s always been with you while you dream.
This one literally gave me butterflies and knots in my tummy. And I mean literally. Like my tummy tingled a few times, while I tried so hard not to cry. I thought at some point I needed to pee with all that emotion bottling up inside of me, while I quietly and breathlessly turn page after page. Who gets that at… well… at non-teenage years? Yes, people who read Ines! And people who keep replaying that midnight scene at Carlos’ house over and over in their heads!
READ IT! IT’S WHAT YOU ARE DESTINED TO DO NOW!
