#74 - The List by Siobhan Vivian

The List - Siobhan Vivian

Every year at Mount Washington High School, a list is published with the four prettiest and the four ugliest girls of the school, one for each grade. This book shows how the list affect every one of these girls.


I really enjoy the concept because it is so realistic. It also shows how important the opinion of other matters to teenagers. I think it is scary because it is so true. What other people think of you will always affect you, but even more so as a teenager. Even if you think it does not matter to you (like Sara in the story), you know it does.


All these girls know each other in some way and I like the fact that you get to know every one of them. My only complaint is that with eight characters, it can get confusing and it also did not go as deep as I wish it would. Also, I listened to it as an audiobook and it was even more difficult for me to understand who was whom (I have a visual memory so it is easier to remember names when I read).


I enjoy this book but it could have been even better in my opinion, I was expecting more.
