Author: Nina Kaplan
Format: Paperback, 203 pages
A Glimpse Inside the World of Madison K…
“I just know in my gut when things are not right, but how do I make a good decision?”
“It is very important to Madison to speak through her choices. After all, an artist must express herself through her presentation. It is a matter of social humanity: she is sure of that! Madison says what she means and she means what she says, verbally and visually.”
“I just think that the world has forgotten about the human being. I really want to bring authenticity and humanity into the beauty industry.”
Madison K. by Nina Kaplan was a bit of an odd read for me. I liked the message and I think the story itself has a lot of potential but the way it read seemed off to me. It didn’t flow. It seemed like the narrator was speaking at you rather than telling the story to you. Sorry if that doesn’t make sense it’s just the best way I can explain it. Another thing that I was unsure of was how the book is part fiction, part biography and part promotional tool. Ultimately this book is about Nina Kaplan’s BLC brand and there is nothing wrong with that however I think I would have preferred to read the whole truth rather than fiction sprinkled with truth.
I did enjoy the characters. They were believable and engaging. Fresh out of high school three girl friends, all ambitious and motivated all get the chance to pursue their dreams. Absolutely great role models for a teenager to look up too. In fact I know a few adults that could learn a bit from them. Madison K learns some tough lessons about being naive and finding out the world is not perfect. However aside from that there was only a little more conflict at the very end of the book, which seemed to be added as an afterthought. Kind of like an “in case I write another one” scenario.
Overall I expected more from this book. I wish it was better because it the ideas for a great story are all there it just wasn’t put together right.
