Misunderstood tells the story of Enya Utzon – A real Teen Queen, who knows how to walk the talk. The novel begins by giving the reader an insight into her destined future as an A-list movie star, who allegedly has it all – Except true happiness and real love!

As the daughter of a successful and busy business couple, she’s used to being left to herself and having to handle everything on her own. That is with the exception of her trusted maid, personal assistant, beauty stylist, tennis and yoga-trainer, health coach and dietitian. Enya Utzon truly is a filthy-rich Teen Queen, who lives her life accordingly and with all the luxuries that come with being that. The only question that rises is: Does all of it really lead to true happiness?

In the story, you follow Enya in her in many ways privileged and exciting life struggling to find true love, and to be recognized by the one man that her heart desires. Only problem is; unlike everyone else, he won’t spare her a look!

Life becomes even more problematic for Enya, when she starts receiving a series of mysteries texts that delete themselves shorty after being read. Then other unpredictable things happen reminding her of a past that she’s been trying to suppress and hide for three years. Furthermore, clues here and there pop-up; and after being totally humiliated Enya is forced to take action and find out why these things are happening to her – and if they might have something to do with her shameful past. A past that now is back to haunt her present and she has to do everything within her power to handle it. Enya Utzon is a true Teen Queen after all – and is not prepared to loose that title, even if she at times wishes to escape her title and role in life!



I received this copy from the author for an honest review.

Beautiful, rich, fashionable, smart and successful, Enya Utzon had all the characteristics to be the perfect girl. Called as the Teen Queen of the Bel-Air High school, Enya catches all the attention of all the girls and boys in their school. But, no matter how perfect she was, she always find her true happiness in life.

At first, I really enjoyed how fantastic the concept of the story was. All about a girl who has everything, but incapable of finding true happiness and love. She has the money, beauty, true and supportive friends. I really dived myself into her character at first, and I enjoyed all the scenes in the storyline. But, as the story went through the middle, I became irritated how the main character shifted from being a good person to such a brat in other situations.

There were also times that it was hard to identify which point of view was. And there were a lot of questions that were still hanging after the end of this book. I adored this book, but I wished there will be supplemented situations that will complete to the whole story. It’s just there were missing parts and there were unanswerable questions for every shift of the situations.

To the characters, I liked them, but as soon as I was able to finish the book, their character developments were not improved at all. It became hard for me to understand what was the main character will supposed to do in her life.

All in all, I enjoyed this book. But not too much. And I hope all the questions I have, will be answered in the second book. Ms. Anya Valentino, thank you for writing this book and I hope the success in your life and your career. 3.5/5 stars for this book.
