This is one of those lovely books to get lost in - best read on a sunny afternoon in the garden.

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.

Now that you've lived a little, it's time to reflect on what got you here, what's coming next, and how to live a more fulfilling life. In alphabetical order by title.

This book was incredibly raw, emotional, and enjoyable. A lot of times I felt voyeuristic looking into the main character's life because it was just THAT realistic. All of the characters basically felt like they were walking straight off the page, and it made empathy that much easier. It's understandable why Charlie did all the things she did, or maybe that's just my psych background talking. It's kind of on the long-ish side, but definitely worth every word. I hope they adapt this to film…
