Cake Face: A Novella
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Cake Face: A Novella
Emotionally immersive and indelibly told, Cake Face tells the story of Ashley, an endearing, witty young woman who finds herself navigating the muddy waters of unexpected fame.
“When I saw my YouTube channel page, I bolted upright, suddenly acutely awake. I didn’t know how to react. My ears started buzzing, and my throat began to close as I refreshed the screen, swiping down again and again. When nothing changed, I restarted my phone and padded across the creaky hardwood floor to the desk by the window so I could check from my laptop. It simply couldn’t be right.
When I’d turned the lights out last night, I had 303.”
When Ashley discovers she’s inexplicably gained nearly nine million subscribers to her beauty channel overnight, she instantly joins the ranks of YouTube beauty stars Zoella and Michelle Phan, and her life changes in all the wonderful ways she’s fantasized about.
But amidst the jaw-dropping checks from Google, mountains of free makeup and her new role as an “influencer” for the multi-billion-dollar beauty industry, an unexpected change begins to take place.
Ash finds that her sudden clout as a “big beauty guru” prompts a whirlwind of questions in her mind. How should she use her newfound power? Who should her influence be on behalf of? What does it really mean to be a YouTube star today?
When she’s offered a lucrative deal by a luxury cosmetics brand, Ash must decide what she ultimately stands for and make a decision that will change the course of her life forever.
Funny, moving and of-the-minute, Cake Face is so compulsively readable you’ll wish it was longer than the entertaining, astute, one-sitting read that it is.
