Omg this is an amazing book. It is full of drama and very facinating . And just omg i highly recommend this novel. I'm 11 almost 12 and i think any age from 10-14 is appropiate (not for boys at all.) I think once u read the book u'll fall in love with it.

This is one of the best books i have ever read. I couldnt wait to have time in class or at home to read it [which for me is unusual]. I think the reaction to the sincerio is what any of us would do. I praise natasha friend on this novel/

I think the book was ok. I think that it could have not used so much detail and the language could have been cut out. I think that this book is apropriout for the High school ages.

This description of this book reminded me of Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk, which a read a number of years ago. I knew it couldn't possibly be as graphic, but I was intrigued by the idea. My first thoughts were that everyone surrounding Lexi is completely shallow. Her whole life in been built around the fact that she's beautiful. It's such a defining characteristic for her. I felt like all a long she really wanted to step out of that aspect of herself. She wanted to be something more than just the beautiful one. She just no idea how to do it. The accident (and the situation leading up to it) that causes the transformation was...interesting. Lexi's so called best friend Taylor and her boyfriend getting caught in that situation would lead anybody to fly off the handle a little bit. But, the circumstances behind that accident were almost laughable. In fact, they would be if it hadn't had such dire consequences. I was more amazed at the excuses Taylor (and boyfriend) came up with. Really? I just didn't believe it. And after all of that Lexi was so miserable without Taylor that she forgave her and went back to being best friends. I think if she would have gone back to the boyfriend as well I might have screamed. But what really made this story work for me is Ruth, Lexi's sister. Lexi hasn't really given her sister half a chance until now. She couldn't see how her sister could possibly be happy without being popular. I also liked how everyone tiptoed around Lexi, except for Ruth. She told Lexi exactly what she needed to her. She pointed out that she needed to stop feeling sorry for herself. And, that the world was not going to end because of what happened. It was interesting to watch the transformation in both Lexi and her relationship with her sister. Overall, I ended up liking the book quite a bit. It had it's teen moments that made me role my eyes and thank god I'm not in high school anymore. But, it also had a really good message underneath it all.

This novel has a pretty dramatic synopsis. Before I read it, I geared myself up for a novel that is filled with pointless drama, and a melodramatic protagonist. I didn't think that I would like it very much, from what I could gather from the synopsis. When I started reading it though, it was much different than what I thought it would be. Reasons to Read: 1.Good portrayal of true friendship The novel's main focus is the friendship between protagonist and her best friend. Flashbacks are written so that we get to see how their friendship was before the accident. These two are as close as sisters. They don't have a perfect relationship, but the way that it has lasted so long shows us just how much they care about each other. Even after the accident, it is clear that the two still do care about each other; although neither of them will admit it. I liked how the question of whether or not you can still reconcile with a friend even after a betrayal was brought up. 2.Lexi's character change At the beginning of the novel, lexi is the typical spoiled, popular snob. The accident takes its toll on her by basically taking away everything that made her popular. This forces lexi to change; for both good and bad. Her development as a character flows beautifully with the pacing of the novel. When the end of the novel comes, you can really tell that she has changed a lot as a person through the circumstances that she is put in. Although I did really like this novel, I had two problems with it. Firstly, I found the back-and-forth switch between past and present to be really confusing. I was glad when that stopped later on. Secondly, lexi could be so whiny and annoying at times. She whined about the smallest things. She just expected the world to fall at her feet, though I think she was purposely written that way to show her change in character and emphasize what she had lost. Despite these problems, I did like this book and recommend it to contemporary fans. ARC received from Penguin Canada for my honest review; no other compensation was received.
