Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short, but breath taking At first the book seemed to be too short to have any decent plot or climax to be read. But after reading the first two chapters I was hooked. The story follows a young girl and how she is to deal with being pretty and perfect. Which most teens these days try to pursuit. At first it sounds stereotypical, but the story had enough depth that you could picture as the story went on. From having parent problems to love life this story says all. All I wish was that it was a lot more longer.
