Title: Beautiful
Author: Amy reed
Published: October 6, 2009
Goodreads synopsis:When Cassie moves from the tiny town where she has always lived to a suburb of Seattle, she is determined to leave her boring, good-girl existence behind. This is Cassie’s chance to stop being invisible and become the kind of girl who’s worth noticing.
Stepping into her new identity turns out to be easier than Cassie could have ever imagined… one moment, one choice, changes everything.
Cassie’s new existence both thrills and terrifies her. Swept into a world of illicit parties and social landmines, she sheds her virginity, embraces the numbness she feels from the drugs, and floats through it all, knowing that she is now called beautiful. She ignores the dangers of her fast-paced life… but she can’t sidestep the secrets and the cruelty.
Cassie is trapped in a swift downward spiral tinged with violence and abuse, and no one—not even the one person she thought she could trust—can help her now.
Fate's thoughts: When i looked at the cover of this book i thought it would be a light read. I was wrong. this book is very real and emotional and definetly deppresing. In fact i propbably wouldn't reccomend it for cerstain age groups. This book was a deppressingly raw and honest version of a modern day teen's life. It deffinetly reduced me to tears a couple of times. On other ocations it had me sad but angry. The only emotion i didnt feel with this book was happiness. But that doesnt mean it wasnt a good book. The only issues i had with this book was that one we never foound out why her family moved or anything about her life before. Two, this book was a little slowpaced for my taste. Other that that this book was a great but age limited read.
