My Review:

 Beneath the Glitter is a lively and captivating book, that will grip you from the beginning and leave you dazzled. The characters were super fun to read about, and also really easy to relate to. This was an overall good book, but there was some downs to it.

 Sophia and Ava London like the authors Elle and Blair Fowler are YouTube stars for their make-up and fashion videos. Sophia and Ava never were close. Their YouTube videos brought them together and made them closer than ever. Will what made them close, tear them apart? Through out their new stardom, and the new boys in their lives, their relationship as sisters starts to crumble. 

 "Beneath the Glitter" Sophia and Ava are normal girls, who have problems just like me and you. Sophia is the older sister and Ava is the younger sister. Sophia and Ava are super easy to relate to. Sophia and Ava were super fun to read about.

  Elle and Blair Fowler did a great job writing this book. It was super fun to read. The prolog was gripping, but I still do have unanswered questions from the prolog. The only problem I had with the writing was that it was written in third person, but the characters are so easy to relate to the third person was not that big of deal.

 I really liked this book. I can't wait to read more of Sophia and Ava. Beneath the Glitter is a cute, fun, and glamorous book. I recommend this to people who love YA Chick Lit, or if you love Elle and Blair Fowler's YouTube videos.
