~The Courage Series~
Reality. What a strange word. We all think we know what reality is, but do we? And does our perspective change reality or just bend it to what we think of as reality?
In “For Real,” Blaine and Melody each have a reality and a facade, and the two couldn’t be further apart. Blaine is literally living a lie. He is one person. He is acting and living like another. Others see what he’s acting like and treat and judge him as if that’s really who he is. It’s not, but how do you get out of that trap?
Melody is on that same reality-bending, living-a-lie trip. She can’t figure out how to be impressive enough for guys to like her, and she’s wrapped up in figuring out how to be who they want her to be long enough to get them to notice her. It’s not working.
Then Blaine and Melody begin to reveal who they really are to each other and come face-to-face with how much their lies are costing them. They are challenged to become “For Real” with each other, but can they do that and not lose everything they’ve built on the lies?
I love how this book challenges the judgments we put on others. How it asks us to be who we really are and let others see our real reality. In essence it asks, “Can you be For Real with your friends and not lose them and yourself in the process?”
