- A Junior Library Guild Selection
- Nominated for Best Fiction For Young Adults 2013 - The American Library Association
- Chosen by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) as one of 6 books that "can be the 1st light of understanding encountered by an abused teen."
Here are samples of some of the great write-ups the novel has been getting:
Kirkus Magazine (One of the biggest book review magazines & notorious for being tough)--
"This exhilarating, generous-hearted tale with a smart, funny,
caustically observant protagonist is about so much more than revenge:
distinguishing what matters from what doesn’t, taking risks, making
mistakes and paying for them.
Like Siobhan Vivian in The
List, Blythe explores issues of physical appearance in rare depth. Some
mistakes aren’t fixable, Faye learns, but she’ll keep trying to fix
Solidly grounded in the gritty realities of daily life, Faye's discoveries feel earned. A compelling and believable journey."
Seventeen Magazine-- "What to read this summer. New releases you won't be able to put down!
The buzz: Revenge Of A Not-So Pretty Girl is about urban life and unlikely alliances—it's definitely a page turner!"
