Isabella Reynolds has the perfect life ... or does she? Maybe there is a grand illusion behind all the glamour.

Isabella Reynolds seems to have it all--the former Southern belle with big dreams is the head of her own skin care company and is the self-proclaimed queen of all things beautiful in New York City. Then her world comes crashing down, and she is stripped of everything she loves--her man, the Italian litigator ''Saint'' Santo; her company, and even her beloved dog, Potato. With her penchant for bingeing and purging, how can she turn her life around when she still feels the need to maintain her ''perfect'' facade?

Fake Perfect Me, author Cari Kamm's heart-warming--and often heartwrenching--tale of a successful New Yorker and her inner circle, offers an inside look at a world of excess. Isabella Reynolds may seem unlike anyone you've ever known, but at her core, she's instantly recognizable. Her trials and tribulations, her ups and downs, are much the same as anyone's. Her world may have a high price tag, but its true value comes from its losses and lesson... to love one's self.

Full disclosure #1: I did not finish this book. I tried. I tried because I've been reading more indie fiction lately and I've been trying to do the authors the favor of honest reviews, and I don't generally intend to review work I didn't finish. I got to just over 50% and simply could not put up with it anymore. I moved on to Illusion and am so glad I did. "Illusion" also features a female protagonist except she's likable and the story is actually interesting.

Full disclosure #2: As a nearly-thirty-year-old male, I am probably not in the target demographic for this book. I actively despised the lengthy descriptions that disclosed every single brand name and product or piece of clothing that the main character was using or wearing. Every other page reads like ad copy going wild. You may enjoy this sort of thing, so take it into account when reading my review. I enjoy a wide range of fiction in a variety of genres. As a general rule, I enjoy a book if it is well-written. As I've already mentioned, I couldn't finish this.

Full disclosure #3: I might have considered a two-star review (although probably not) if it were not for the many blatant shill reviews promoting this book. I don't know if every five-star review is fake but I certainly would not recommend trusting them. If you click on the other reviews written by many of these reviewers, you will see, as I did, that they all reviewed many of the same products on the same day with nearly identical wording. It's pretty clear that the author (or an associate) has spent a fair amount of time creating false accounts to promote her book (and to vote down honest, negative reviews). I think these tactics are despicable, and shame on the author for stooping to this. I can't speak for all the reviews and am not going to waste my time analyzing them all, but I did investigate four in a row that all were very obviously fake.

Now, the review: the main character in "Fake Perfect Me" is an endlessly shallow and narcissistic woman named Isabella. It was very difficult to identify with a character that I despised so thoroughly. At first, this seemed like a "Sex and the City" knock-off (because of the obsession with designer tags that most mature out of after high school) except that Isabella was pretty darn celibate (in the parts I read) and there was one potentially interesting twist: Isabella is bulimic. I hoped, very early on, that this would end up a character study about a shallow, vapid woman finding depth as she battled an eating disorder. What we get instead is endless, whiny self-reflection from the sort of person who is nice to the rich and famous and treats their waiter with undisguised contempt. This inane inner dialogue in the first person is broken up by pretentiously written diary entries by the same character whose head we are in anyway. Seriously, the only difference between these needless diary entries and the main narration is that they come across as more self-conscious than the rest of the text. The author has no ear for dialogue and it comes across as stilted and lifeless, and there are significantly more errors than any of the other indie books that I've read recently.

Might your mileage vary? Sure. If you can get past all the errors and if a long swim in the shallow end of the pool appeals to you, go for it. Try the sample. It should give a good indication of the rest of the book (at least, as far as I've read). But, before you make a purchase, consider whether it bothers you to support an author whose page is covered in false, shill reviews. That's a judgment, I feel, that you have to make before you even get to the question of whether you'd like the book or not. It's up to you.

Debut author Cari Kamm poses the question, "What is Fake Perfect?" in her debut novel Fake Perfect Me. Isabella Reynolds defines Fake Perfect in the New York City socialite world that she lives in. But, Kamm takes readers into deeper issues, such as low-self esteem and eating disorders. Having grown up in Greenwich, CT, I recognized the character of Isabella immediately. But, you don't have to live in or be exposed to any particular social arena, town or city to connect with this novel. Kamm tactfully, and with humor and warmth, addresses the issues that are rampant among young (and even older) woman who strive to be perfect and accepted by others, but most of all themselves.

The novel is written in a voice that endears readers to Isabella, and they will find themselves cheering her on. Kamm's debut as an author is well founded, and I look forward to following her continued success with this and future books.

I enjoyed this book both from the perspective of enjoying a well crafted novel as well as from being a psychologist who works primarily with adult women. This funny and inspiring book details a journey of discovery and self worth that is very human and touching. Whether your goal is to simply be entertained, or to learn something important, you'll achieve it by reading this book.

I think this story was real touching. It touched on real issues that people struggle with every day, like self image and finding love. This book was easy to relate too!

I would recommend this book to my friends and to anyone that is dealing with problems!

I realized that eventually the main character would have a change of heart but I got tired of her talking about $400 dinners with friends and all her designer clothes as well as drinking herself into a stupor on a regular basis.

This book really makes you evaluate your life and relationships. It's entertaining too. Wish I had Isabella's wardrobe! However, I don't know how someone could drink as much as Isabella does and still walk around.
I have always been a fan of a personal tell all book an this book is so capturing! I read it 4 times and I still feel like I can relate to the wonderful character. Great read! I have recommended it to so many friends!
