Book Review: One Dress. One Year. by: Bethany Winz with Susanna Aughtmon

One Dress. One Year. is the true story of a teenage girl who wore the same dress everyday for a year. Bethany made a black dress and wore it everyday in order to raise awareness about the fact that slavery and trafficking still exist in the modern world. The book chronicles her life and lessons learned throughout her project.

The book is basically her blog recycled and then extra thoughts explaining what was happening in her life that day. I would have preferred a more fluid story. I thought this book read more like a project summary than a memoir. Although Bethany was assisted with her writing you could tell that this was the work of a young author. At times it was nice because it is the story of a young girl starting to "grow up" at other times it affected the flow of the writing.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
