Half of the book unfolded from the POV of a teen girl's video diary, giving the book a very YA feel. It would be difficult (for me) to say that any of them were particularly likeable, even the non-villains were a bit flat in their personality flushing out, however I gobbled them up with the same vigor in which I watch Grey's Anatomy trainwrecking its way though its 19th season.

So I said, 'There is more action going on in my hometown with my friends dealing with the fact that they cannot deal with turning 30 or with commitment'—all that became Beautiful Girls. This was a quick page turner and read like a Cozy but topics of bullying, emotional abuse of a child, and murder contrasted the disarming writing style. It opens up with a dead body and then we hear the story from Kate's point of view and Alex's video diary.

The dresses they feel the need to don are bodycon, unlike the duo’s natural choice: flowy shirts, baggy trousers. For what may be the first time in her life, Kate Turner has made an almost-impulsive choice: to move with her teenage daughter, Alex, from Buffalo to a new home in Shoreham, Florida. When a mysterious neighborhood boy befriends his young daughter, stay-at-home dad Craig considers him a godsend—until it becomes clear that there’s nothing angelic about him at all. You will hopefully cringe at the unnecessary fatphobic comments that added absolutely no value to the story itself.

Probably not but that’s ok with me because sometimes a book being good in the moment is really all I need.

And let's not forget the book was supposed to be a thriller but there was nothing thrilling about it, no shocking plot twists. The film received fairly positive reviews and has a 77% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 48 reviews.

with her 17-year-old daughter, Alex, who’s been depressed since her father, Ed, died in a recent car accident. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote: "What's nicest about the film is the way it treasures the good feelings people can have for one another. Every parent’s nightmare…Hunt takes mean girls to a whole new level in her new novel, Lovely Girls .

Margot Hunt is the USA Today bestselling author of Best Friends Forever , For Better and Worse , and The Last Affair .In this chilling story from the bestselling author of The Secret Mother, it’s the wedding day of Alice’s dreams. Dillon-Reams and MacKerron promise laughter, dance and wine to people on the first row (a note to my future self more than anything) and they bloody well deliver. Though Kate is friendly with the mothers of the team’s members, the girls are queen bees who ignore Alex at best or take note of her simply to bully her.

The sequence is revisited, and only on hearing the song in full do we realise how much these gender norms are rooted in old-time, Golden Age twentieth-century ideologies. Life has gone seriously off the rails in the Turner household and now Kate is hoping for a fresh start for both of them. A traumatized witness to a serial killer’s crimes is the only key to solving them in a gripping novel of psychological suspense. Michaelides takes a literary turn in his latest novel, employing an unreliable narrator, the structure of classical drama, and a self-conscious eye to dismantling the locked-room mystery.It serves as yet another cautionary tale about the cruel side of Social Media, and how you can’t run from what has already been posted. As the action unfolds, we learn more about Kate's complicated relationship with her late husband--as well as how Alex related to her father. At a recent symposium at Queen’s University Belfast, the winner of the 1972 competition, Jane Kelly, discussed how her experiences did not fit the simplistic image of the oppressed housewife. So glad I did from the very beginning I was drawn in to the lives of the people involved in the story. Unfortunately for Alex, their group of daughters have targeted her and are typical "mean girl bullies.
