Average GBC reader rating [elpix_average_rating]

It happens every year before homecoming – the list is posted all over school. Two girls are picked from each grade. One is named the prettiest, one the ugliest. The girls who aren’t picked are quickly forgotten. The girls who are become the center of attention, and each reacts differently to the experience.
With The List, Siobhan Vivian deftly takes you into the lives of eight very different girls struggling with issues of identity, self-esteem, and the judgments of their peers. Prettiest or ugliest, once you’re on the list, you’ll never be the same.

GBC Review by Sofia S.

The List is a pretty good book, in my opinion. The first few chapters were a little bit confusing, but as I reached the end it made sense. The story is about a high school with an annual tradition of listing the prettiest and ugliest girls in each grade. I would recommend this book for teenage girls because I think they would appreciate the storyline. This book is almost like the Mother Daughter Book Club series because each girl has a different personality: Danielle, Abby, Candace, Lauren, Sarah, Margo, Jennifer and Bridget all have different attitudes regarding the “list”. I hope most girls like this book and read it over again as it is an interesting but complicated story.

Happy reading!
