LibrariYAn says: My first reaction to this book was solely based on the cover, and it was, "Yes! A person of color getting some cover time!" and then "...except she's supposed to be a "not-so-pretty" girl, and that girl is really pretty." One point for racial diversity. One point off for failing to capture the protagonist realistically. Then I read the publisher copy and thought, "It starts out really tense and thriller-like, but it ends with way too many questions that don't seem related and are kind of confusing." Then I watched the trailer and thought, "Inexpensively, but nicely done.Just how a book trailer should be." And then I saw that Kirkus gave it a starred review. So...I'm not sure what to expect with this one, but I'm putting it on the TBR pile.
