Cover Thoughts: muh... not my favorite
Review: I want to talk about pain for a moment. For me the worst kind of pain is not physical pain but the pain of reading about a horribly vain person who thinks they aren't vain. For example:
"He was appraising me from head to toe with interest in his eyes, subtle, but interested. I wasn't surprised by his examination of me. I was used to guys checking me out. I discovered three years ago, when I turned thirteen and started to develop little bumps on my chest, that the opposite sex found me attractive. I had been blessed with a slender, athletic body and curves in all the right places. I'd let my thick, acorn-brown hair grow long enough to reach the top of my butt, which guys seemed to appreciate. And on more than one occasion, some member of the male species would tell me how pretty my light blue eyes were. I found it all pretty embarrassing, especially since every time I looked in a mirror, I still saw the same skinny girl with a mouthful of braces that I used to be."
And that's when I stopped reading this book. The story described in the synopsis sounds so much better. I always feel like the synopsis is written by someone other than the other and the are trying to make a bad book sound good. I am so very disappointed. This year has been full of some amazing books and then so very horrible books... I have never not finished so many books before. I am very disappointed.
