It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.
This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection between the two.
A fabulous local blogger wrote an amazing review about The List, and that really cinched my decision to read it. Multiple POVs are definitely one feature I enjoy in both books and movies, so I'm hoping this one will deliver a well-rounded story as told by the eight girls. And lucky for me and other eagerly waiting readers, it's being released this Sunday!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
