On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Looks by Tara Taylor Quinn
There’s an old cliché about beauty only being skin deep. They say that clichés become clichés because of the truth they speak. The problem is that once it becomes cliché we tend to pass right by it. Blasé. Been there done that.
Our society, and most particular we women, still have this elemental need to look good. To feel good about how we look. As though somehow our self-worth, at least in part, is somewhat dependent upon how we look. I’m one to talk. I work at home, spend most of my time alone, and I still, every morning, put make up on before I leave my bedroom. Even when I’m wearing sweats to go work out. I do this because if I feel put together, I accomplish more. But…why?
In Her Secret Life, Kacey and Michael had some things to tell me about looking good. I don’t know that any of us came up with any answers as to why our looks effect how we feel – is it just societal, or is it more than that, a sense of knowing that if we do our best to take care of ourselves, we perform better? But what helped me was to know that when the chips are down, surface beauty really is only skin deep. And that what is underneath is what we need, what turn to and what we draw from, even within ourselves, when challenges face us.
On the surface, this is a soap opera star meets scarred computer geek story. Inside, it’s so much more than that. Kacey and Michael have pieces of me in them. I hope they join your circle of friends, too.
