Looks by Madeleine George
Published: New York : Viking, 2008
Two high school girls, one an anorexic poet and the other an obese loner, form an unlikely friendship.
I loved reading Looks.
The first thing that drew me to the book was the cover, I just thought that the cover looked really interesting.
Looks goes a lot deeper than just a good cover however.
For starters the descriptions that Madeleine George provides within her book are amazing. They are almost poetic-like and magical.
The characters were all really well developed too. I really loved Meghan and Aimee which was obviously the desired affect from the author. I didn't like Cara but she was a well-developed character.
The story line itself was great too, everything flowed and there was never anything I doubted or felt was missing.
One thing I really loved about Looks was that everything was there, when I was reading it I thought it would be good to read more about certain aspects and later on they were there. I also just loved how events unfolded and were revealed slowly but really interestingly.
Overall, I really loved Looks and would recommend it to anyone interested in reading a highly entertaining novel with magical descriptions. I will definitely be getting myself a copy of this novel.
