I liked learning more about the actress behind my favorite GG character, but it seemed as if some of the material was assumed. The quotes were very awesome though, and there were a lot of them. I wish there would have been more pictures and I wish it talked about how she does her hair!! LOL I love Blake Livelys hair.
