Pretty Girl-13

Pretty Girl-13 - Liz Coley **There are some spoilers in the "characters" section.**

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is such a hard review for me to write. The story itself was captivating and intense, but I have trouble actually saying that it was "good" because the subject matter of the story is so terrible. The book sucked me in from the moment I picked it up and I refused to put it down once I got into the story. My heart was pounding the whole way through.

CHARACTERS: This is the part that gets a little spoiler-y. The main character, Angie, was a pretty like-able character. She was a confused and frustrated girl just trying to figure things out. I really liked all of the different alters and I came to think of them as their own characters. I feel like I wanted to learn a little bit more about them, specifically Angel. Girl Scout was my favorite alter. She was very straight forward and had the biggest personality of them all.

COVER: The cover is okay. It symbolizes the story well, but I feel like they could have done it a little differently.
