    Description

    An intense look at the rules of high school attraction - and the price that's paid for them. It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.

    Engaging and Entertaining

    I loved The List – a story of eight teenage girls, four named the prettiest in their school and four named the ugliest who have to come to terms with both how they see themselves and how others see them.

    The List manages to follow not one but EIGHT different characters all with more depth, poignancy and intricacy then most YA books with a single bland heroine manage.

    Every girl has her own unique story and every one somehow manages to get their due in what is a pretty succinct book.

    The outcast who wears the UGLY label as a badge of honour for all the wrong reasons.

    The popular girl whose attempts to overcome an eating disorder are put into jeopardy when the PRETTY label validates her negative behaviour.

    The beautiful cheerleader labelled UGLY, not for what is on her outside but on her inside.

    The quiet home-schooled girl suddenly in the spotlight now that she is PRETTY.

    I’m amazed she managed to fit so many well-done stories into a single narrative!

    I would have liked a little more wrap-up and I’ve have happily read even more from the girls but it was a rare satisfying stand-alone read!

    I think this is would be a stellar teenage read but I’ve seen some parents complain about the sex, alcohol and language in other reviews. I personally think it was all handled incredibly well – not preachy, nor exploitive just eerily relatable. Maybe a little too accurate for some?

    Still I think the messages of empowerment and acceptance makes The List more than worth a read for teen girls. Older reads though, can definitely enjoy the incredibly well drawn characters too so I highly recommend the list to everyone!

    Character Development Lacking

    I wanted to enjoy this book but I found myself lacking concern for the characters. I was not invested in any of them. Maybe if each character was a bit more developed then I would have cared more.

    Really Good.. but the ending?

    The performance was perfect! I enjoyed all of the characters. I just felt that the ending didn't wrap everything. I was left with questions and didn't feel satisfied with the conclusion.

    Worst ending of all time

    This book feels like a lot of set up with no real ending. Lots of potential for life lesson but ultimately fails to follow through.

    And then it ended...

    The actual story itself was great but I was very disappointed by the ending, it just kind of ended and I felt like there was still bits the needed to be said or at least tied up. As well the reader did do a good job but the male voices were not the best.

    pretty good

    I FELT this book. It's a very real book on how high school is. The end could have been better. It was too abrupt and didn't really feel like an ending. It isn't entirely unique, though some aspects of it are. There are parts that are almost too similar to the movie "Mean Girls" though.

    Good story weird ending.

    The narration was good and I enjoyed the story, although it seemed a little overdone at points. The end though... it was so abrupt that I thought for a second that my phone died. It felt like it ended in the middle is a sentence. There was no closure at all.

    Amazing take on High School Popularity

    This is essentially Pretty Little Liars or The Perfectionist by Sarah Shepard without unnecessary drama andmurder.

    TW: eating disorder!

    At first I was sceptical about the sheer amount of perspectives from which this story is told (8 in total) but it really worked out beautifully. Still don't expect your classic YA novel with twists and turns and a shocking climax. This however is what makes the novel so realistic. All characters are extremely believable and written in a way that makes them easy to differentiate from one another. Sadly the ending falls a bit a flat to me. For most characters there is no resolution and the story feels cut off. One girl suffers from an eating disorder and since this is aimed at young girls a resolution for this part of the story is absolutely necessary in my opinion. Despite from that I still really much enjoyed it and would absolutely recommend it.
