Outside In by Chrissie Keighery
Its What's On the Inside That Counts!
From the shadows she watches them from the outside looking in. She watches without being watched, they are popular and good looking and to them she is invisible. From this view, from the outside looking in they all seem perfect, their lives are perfect.
From the inside the view is different. On the inside everyone is dealing with their own personal problems and while some are more serious then others everyone suffers the same. Everyone is hiding on the inside, afraid of being hurt, afraid of being alone. But even on the outside cracks are starting to show.
Outside In introduces an ensemble cast sharing their experiences in a way that is both illuminating and affectionate. A powerful story that compels an emotional investment into the lives of a group of people whom little is known about. That is apart from the perspectives of others looking in from the outside, and the glimpses revealed from the inside out. Definitely a must read.
