Title: VAIN (The Seven Deadly #1)
Author: Fisher AmelieSYNOPSIS
If you’re looking for a story about a good, humble girl, who’s been hurt by someone she thought she could trust, only to find out she’s not as vulnerable as she thought she was and discovers an empowering side of herself that falls in love with the guy who helps her find that self, blah, blah, blah...then you’re gonna’ hate my story.
Because mine is not the story you read every time you bend back the cover of the latest trend novel. It’s not the “I can do anything, now that I’ve found you/I’m misunderstood but one day you’ll find me irresistible because of it” tale. Why? Because, if I was being honest with you, I’m a complete witch. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a friend using, drug abusing, sex addict from Los Angeles. I’m every girlfriend’s worst nightmare and every boy’s fantasy.
I’m Sophie Price...And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most envied girl to the girl no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

I finished reading Vain in the wee hours of the morning and ended up having puffy eyes. This book made me weep and broke my heart. It broke my heart into tiny fragments but at the end of the journey of these characters, the story managed to put it back up. Vain is one of those stories that I can say that it truly touched my heart.
The story starts off with Sophie Price, our main character who feels like every single person on Earth should bow down with just the sight of her, was caught in a party with/doing Coke. Unluckily, it's her second offense and that ensued the possibility for a graver sentence. But she never would've thought that it'll be a service of six months in a certain orphanage in Uganda! What?! Sophie Price?! The top of the richie rich kids ladder banished to Uganda? Well, Sophie didn't a have choice but to suck it up and face whatever challenge is going be thrown in her way...
Travel. Uganda. Orphans. Staff. Ian. But then what seems to be the craziest sentence she first thought then vanished. It was replaced with comfort and happiness. Go figure.
