Loved North of Beautiful

If I had one thing to say about North of Beautiful, it would be, "I was moved." From the beginning, I was engaged. I was also impressed with the number of issues and topics covered, everything from common teenage frustrations and Chinese cultural experiences to unique family dynamics and personal passions. The author hit the mark - entering the hearts, minds, and souls of teenage girls and grown-up women. We can relate. Reading North of Beautiful was as much fun as catching up with a girlfriend. It leaves you feeling connected and understood!

Am I the only person who does not like North of Beautiful? I think I am. This book majorly sucks. Don't get me wrong - I wanted to like North of Beautiful, or else I obviously would not have bought it - but it just dragged. It went on, and on, and on. So. You have a birthmark. Yeah, it sucks. Live with it.
Terra was just complaining about it. "Like, omg, can you see it?" "I can't go there. I might get lost. No way, no way!" "My boyfriend- I have to look SUPER DUPER hot for him or else he'll leave me!" Well lets see...your boyfriend is a jerk if he only cares about your looks, no?

    Alright.

    The plot COULD have been good if developed more thoroughly. The author attempted to develop it by the use of larger words to paint a picture of thorough literature, but it was not. The character development was weak and the plot suffered as the novel dragged. The main point wasn't fully discovered until the end of the novel; the book pushed towards a larger meaning, but fell off the build up. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. However, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and this book could be good to someone else.

    It was Ok..

    It was an ok read. I had to pretty much make myself finish the book in hopes that it would end well. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
