I have not yet read this book.

From the very first page I was drawn into this novel and couldn't put it down. Inspired by the movie 13, this book tells the story of Cassie, a 13 year old whose family moved to Seattle to start over new. Cassie, so desperately wanting to fit in at her new school, soon finds herself friends with the wrong crowd. Doing drugs and having sex, whatever she has to do to keep her reputation and friends. Before she knows it, she's spiralling out of control
and it costs her the only genuine friend she's ever known. I definitely recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good YA book. ( )

I'm in the middle of reading it right now but so far it's very good! ( )

After a move from a small town to the big city of Seattle, Cassie decides to change herself from the invisible 13 year old she is, to an out going, try anything, party chick. A girl, who takes drugs, has under age sex and frequents party after party. One choice changes everything and as her life balances on the knife-edge a hand of friendship is extended.

Likened to a modern-day Go Ask Alice the story falls short of the mark. Told in the first person, the dialogue between Cassie and her so called friend lacks realism, and although Reed portrays the sex/drug scenes throughout with conviction, they still fail to grab my attention. ( )

When I first started this book, I didn't really like it. It seemed like a rip-off of the film Thirteen. It also wasn't explaining itself very well. After the initial hurdles, I found myself enjoying it a little bit more. While I don't regret reading it, I wish that I had picked up this book at the library instead of purchasing it.

One thing that you can say about Beautiful is that it is a page-turner. I read this literally in two hours without moving from where I was sitting. It was extremely intense and gritty. So much that I found myself flinching with the certain situations that the characters have gone through (mainly Sarah's backstory). The book did not drag one bit and the "action" starts almost immediately. Yet, that right there was what worked against it.

The shift between Cassie's "good girl" status to her "bad girl" persona just went too quickly. One minute she's excited about being accepted into the popular smarties clique and the next minute she's hanging out with Alex doing drugs and having sex. I didn't get a clear picture of who Cassie was as a good girl. So it was a bit difficult to empathize with her at the beginning. Cassie wasn't all that fleshed out until she started rebelling. That was when all of her emotions just burst out and you understood her pain.

Cassie wasn't the only character that lacked developing. Delving into Alex's background could've been extremely interesting considering how different her and Cassie seem. Cassie was sort of thrust into this life while Alex seems like much more comfortable with it. It seems like that was the life she had always known. All of the characters had potential yet it seemed like it was wasted.

So, I thought Beautiful was just okay. Like I said, the book is an extremely fast read, yet that can be because it's pretty short (a little too short; it could've benefited from having about a hundred more pages to build up the main character). It's just that there was too much of a mystery when it came to Cassie that it was too hard for me to connect to her and because of that I was detached from the story. I still recommend this book, but I suggest you get it from the library. ( )
