My Life in Black and White by Natasha Friend
Reviewed By: A.R.
Lexi is beautiful and she knows it. She has butter-colored hair and stunning features that have aided her in attracting cool friends, a handsome boyfriend, and the attention of an accredited modeling scout. But her once perfect features shatter literally when her face goes through a windshield one night. Now, she doesn't even know what hurts the most; her scars or her best friend and her boyfriend cheating behind her back right before the accident. Then, with her uncool older sister and a guy at school who is suffering through his own recent trauma, Lexi realizes she is more than just a beauty. She is perfect without her looks.
Why I Picked it Up: I picked it up because the synopsis of the book seemed interesting. I wanted to read the book from cover to cover.
Why I Finished It: I finished it because I was proud of Lexi. She went through so much by herself, but she was able to stand up and learn life lessons that will define her for the rest of her life. She learns things that most people in high school never learn about (and/or learn to care about). She makes the best of her situations, bonds with her older sister, and makes a reliable friend to realize that she is priceless - with and without her beauty.
I’d Give this Book To: I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in reading a book about a girl who suffers from a car accident and loses a lot of happy things in her life only to gain even happier things. This book was splendid. I would recommend it to everyone!
