In a time when beauty is dictated by magazine covers and actresses, Lizzie Velasquez provides a first account of her journey to find the beauty within and reemphasize the importance of staying true to oneself. The book, her second, shares her advice on being unique, how to make and keep good friends, dealing with bullying and negativity, the art of personal meditation, talking to God in your own words, and setting realistic goals. Woven throughout are Lizzie's personal experiences, as well as those shared by readers of her first book. The book's core theme, to love yourself as the gift of God you are, will resonate with anyone who struggles with self-esteem. This book includes Lizzie’s personal experiences as well as those shared by readers of her first book and followers of her blog, whom she has inspired and helped throughout the years. Lizzie Velasquez is a Communications major at Texas State University in San Marcos. She is one of only three individuals in the world known to have an undiagnosed syndrome that prevents the body from gaining weight or creating muscle. This syndrome, which is known to affect only two others worldwide, has made her life a study in contradictions. She eats whatever she wants, yet cannot move a weigh scale past 60 or so pounds. In a time when many people change their appearance in order to feel accepted, she has accepted herself with extraordinarily positive self-esteem. Her attitude, not her syndrome, is contagious.
