review: Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley
My words are just not adequate enough to express my feeling about his book – it was part sad, part enlightening, part funny, part depressing and part hopeful and so so so so much more.
This book chronicles sixteen year old Angie’s mysterious return home after disappearing three years earlier from a Girl Scout camp out.
Angie has a deep seeded past that unfolds slowly, and those past trials will seize you and not let go. Angie’s plight literally stole my heart; I wept, I laughed, I cringed, I through the book, I smiled and was completely satisfied by the ending that I hugged the book.
There are so many things that I could say about this book, but I don’t want to spoil it. I would rather you read the book and discover Angie’s secrets yourself. Be warned, Angie has gone through a lot of horrible, horrible things that aren’t pretty. Things that are worse than ugly. Things that will make you want to hurl the book at all sex-offenders and lead a march on Washington.
Just one thing, not a fan of the cover. I get it, what it means, but that eerie green and yellow lighting makes me think she was abducted by aliens.
