The saying meant not to worry, everything will work out no matter what obstacle you may have to overcome. It taught me to be myself and to take chances! I am proud to say I have lived a life of no regrets. My grandmother would be proud and I know she is shining down on me with her big glass of boxed white wine.

Accuracy of Book Profile
Yes, the book profile accurately reflects the book.
Draw of Story
The story is very relatable and Christina has a colorful way of storytelling. She also is very open and honest about her life and her feelings. Her thoughts about her absent father and its' affects on her life are explored as well as her dreams and desires.
The story is very honest and inspiring. Her life is realistic which is rarely seen these in the media. There was nothing that made me want to put the book down.
Use of Special Effects
THE STORY DOES NOT RELY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS
Primary Hook of Story
The hook is that Christina moves from the big city of New York to Nashville to chase her dreams. She has some breaks but life isn't going how she planned. I would watch this movie for the realistic representation of life. Christina goes through many trials and tribulations to get to where she is at the end of the story. She isn't 22 and gets her big break. She struggles well into her 30's, single and broke. It shows that there is no timeline for success or love. It takes longer for some people to hit their stride in life if ever.
This could have a large fanbase. It is an inspiring life story for all, but especially woman. There are many life lessons the audience learns along with Christina and it is relatable to an older demographic. It will also show how life isn't roses for many past the ages the media has deemed when you need to have everything figured out. It explores different paths human beings are on.
This does not have awards potential. The story is inspiring, but fun and most times, lighthearted. It doesn't dive into many deep perspectives or hard hitting topics that would garner awards notice.

What’s New About the Story
The story is original because it shows how life often is. Most people do not have it all figured out by their 30's. Not everyone has the career they want, are married with a family and happy where their life is. Many times, adults are still figuring it out. This gives an authentic perspective on life for millions of people.
The lead character stands out because she constantly feels that she is meant for greater and puts in the work to make it happen. Christina is a go getter and determined to follow her dreams. She doesn't take no for an answer or lie down. Her perseverance pays off in the end.
Uniqueness of Story
This is a gem because it combats some of the negative ideology in the media. With social media and rampant comparison culture, high self esteem is becoming less common. Not completely, but partly due to the unrealistic expectations put on humans. If you aren't traveling the world, thriving in your dream career or happily married and living in bliss then you must be failing at life. This story shows that success can come at any age and sometimes you have to keep believing until it happens.
