Easy Monday (2)
Easy Mondays in where I review romantic comedies.
Title: Scary Beautiful
Author: Niki Burnham
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Chloe Rand's life is great.
She has a serious boyfriend, she's about to start her junior year of high school, and she has a tight group of girlfriends. But when her boyfriend moves across the country and decides the long-distance-relationship thing just isn't for him, Chloe's devastated. Worse, she soon learns that when you're the prettiest girl in school and totally unattached, everyone starts treating you differently. Girls don't trust you, guys aren't sure what to make of you, and everyone assumes you're either spoiled, dumb, or both.
Chloe realizes that she's been living the last few years in a bubble and decides to do something about it. But when she falls for Billy, a total geek, will it make her situation better...or worse?
Opinion/review: One of the better books I have read from this author. We get a good feel of who Chloe is and she becomes a really likable character. There is some drama between the friends but it gets solved and the friendships seem real. Billy is the cool geek who seems like a great guy. If you like romantic comedies and are looking for a good one to read I definitely recommend this book.5/5
