Overview

Chloe Rand's life is great.

She has a serious boyfriend, she's about to start her junior year of high school, and she has a tight group of girlfriends. But when her boyfriend moves across the country and decides the long-distance-relationship thing just isn't for him, Chloe's devastated. Worse, she soon learns that when you're the prettiest girl in school and totally unattached, everyone starts treating you differently. Girls don't trust you, guys aren't sure what to make of you, and everyone assumes you're either spoiled, dumb, or both.

Chloe realizes that she's been living the last few years in a bubble and decides to do something about it. But when she falls for Billy, a total geek, will it make her situation better...or worse?

This book is amazing! Just got done reading it and i highly recommend it. Thi book teaches that there is someone out there for everybody. That it doesnt matter how ugly there are or tall or short or fat or skinny. People ar gonig to talk about you until the day you die so let them talk because thats all theyre doing. Talking. Dont let hat people say about you make up your mind for you. I believe that this book is made mostly for highschol students. Most of bus highschoolers let your so calleg friends dictate their life. They let rhem walkballbover them just to be noticed by some guy or girl who hasnt even noticed you until then. The true moral of this story is to like who you like, love who you love and let people talk. Because they re obviously not happy in the relationship theyre in and they dont want you to be happy either but dont let them bring you down.

Chloe Rand seems to have the perfect life. She's about to start her junior year of high school, she has a great boyfriend and a close group of girlfriends, and she's incredibly gorgeous. But when her boyfriend moves across the country, dumping her at the airport right before he leaves, everything seems to fall apart.

Now Chloe realizes that being a stunningly beautiful, suddenly single girl at high school isn't easy. Guys aren't sure how to treat her, girls don't trust her, and Chloe's junior year isn't going at all as planned.

Chloe decides to take charge of her own life and get out of the bubble she's been living in, but when the first thing she does is fall for Billy, who is a complete geek and totally out of the range of the "old Chloe," will it make things easier, or harder?

I've really enjoyed all of the Simon Romantic Comedies, particularly Niki Burnham's other contributions, and SCARY BEAUTIFUL is no exception. It's a great book that really challenges the "popular girl" stereotypes, and teens are sure to have fun reading it.

Chloe's been in a serious relationship with Sean since 8th grade. But now at the start of her junior year Sean moves across the country and suddenly its over. She doesn't know how to flirt. But she's ready to start learning. But Chloe doesn't understand the reaction she's getting her friends, other girls at school, and even the boys. Why are the other girls threatened? It doesn't help matters that she's gorgeous. Girls love to hate and fear gorgeous girls. Considering she's always been friendly, is Chloe about to receive a wake-up call? Amusingly the concept of shallowness and stereotypes is dissected here. A great read about a clueless girl you just can't help but root for.
