The List by Siobhan Vivian

Cover Art for The list  TEEN BOOK REVIEW
Title: The List
Author: Siobhan Vivian
Briefly, what was it about? Every year on the week of homecoming a list comes out at Mount Washington High School naming the ugliest and the prettiest girl in each class. The List follows the lives of the eight girls named and the ramifications that come with being prettiest or ugliest during homecoming week. One could be homecoming queen, one’s life could fall apart, and in this high school it seems that anything could happen.
Did you like the book? Yes
Why? I thought it was so interesting! There were a couple of twists in the story line, but mainly it was just so easy to see what goes on behind closed doors. It had a real quality to the writing, as in yes this is what some people’s lives ate like. Things may not be as perfect as they seem. How being named the prettiest of your grade can ruin your life and being called the ugliest can make it. I was captivated in this book, eager to see what would happen next and what paths each of the girls lives would take.
