We follow the journey of Sophia Amorous the C.E.O of the company Nasty Gal. She goes through everything she went through to get to where she is now. She did not start as easy as selling fashion online but she started out by selling a stolen book online. As a teenager she was far from career focused she was hitch hiking, committing petty theft, and also dumpster diving. She finally got a 9-5 job but she did not enjoy it as much as she would think. She was in it mostly for the health insurance but it was not enough for her. Then she decided to start to sell clothing on E-Bay and how did that lead her to a $250 Million Retail Empire.
#Girlboss, by Sophia Amoruso, is great for the person who wants to be motivated it shows it does not matter what background you come from if you put your mind to it you can make a difference. She changed the standard cookie cutter image of what you would think of a C.E.O. She had many jobs some jobs that seem like she wanted to find a bad job. She didn't go to college but that did not stop her she changed the definition of being successful.

The book, Shadowlands, by Kate Brian, was in my opinion, a very well written book with many twists and turns as soon as you turned the page. It constantly kept me guessing about what was going to happen next. The author did a tremendous job of keeping the readers guessing until the very last page. I went into this book with expectations of a standard serial killer thriller plot, and came out with, actually, I don't know how to describe what Shadowlands is without spoiling the ending - a bizarre twisty mind-bender? I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes mystery,drama, and scandals.
