Gorgeous by Rachel Vail

GorgeousSummer is over. There’s a fire in the woodstove and I have a big TBR pile, so it’s time to get back to Need To Read.

The first book I’ve read in almost a month (I know!) is Gorgeous by Rachel Vail. This is the companion book to last year’s LUCKY. I vaguely remember that I liked LUCKY, although I was slightly disturbed to discover that I couldn’t really remember anything about it except the stunning cover! Anyway, this book takes place at the same time as LUCKY and is about her older sister.

I really liked this book. It has a little extra something that gives it a step-up from your every day YA, but I wont’ tell you what. I’m a big fan of Rachel Vail, but I have to say that if I’d read this, not knowing who the author is, I wouldn’t have guessed. It’s a bit of a departure (but in a good way) from her normal writing. Anyway, try it. I think you’ll like it!
