“Ugly Beautiful Girl” by Tracy Krimmer
Blurb: Nerd. Weird. Ugly. That’s me. And I don’t want it to be anymore.
Now is my time to make my mark on the world. My college roommate doesn’t make it easy. Neither does her brother, Jesse, but for completely different reasons. He makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.
Wanted. Important. Beautiful.
But we can’t be together because it isn’t real. Someone like him could never fall for someone like me. We aren’t meant to fit together.
Even if I fall apart without him.
My Review: At some point in our lives, I think it’s safe to say that we can all relate to Violet. We’ve not all been the funny or popular one, nor the pretty or beautiful one. Not only life, but people can be cruel.
While Violet might have it all on paper (brains), that is hardly what people see on the outside. Jesse is the one who makes her feel beautiful, and I liked his caring ways, but his sister, Olivia, made me cringe. I wish she’d just mind her own business and not bother them, and especially make Violet’s life any more miserable. Also, at times, it seemed like Olivia was very jealous of Violet and the time she spent with Jesse. (I could understand the protectiveness, but not the jealousy).
Not only did I feel that it was Olivia who tortured Violet, but her mother, too, which I found sad. However, I was so glad that she could rely on her father, who seemed to have a caring soul.
My only issue was that it wasn’t as lifting as I’d hoped. While “Ugly Beautiful Girl” was a heart-wrenching read, Tracy Krimmer wrote this book beautifully.
I give “Ugly Beautiful Girl” 4 stars!
