Pretty: A Novel by Jillian Lauren

Pretty: A NovelPretty: A Novel by Jillian Lauren




I loved this book, and I would keep it in regular rotation to read again and again.
I've been there, Bebe.
Bebe is the main character, and I love novels written from first person, inside the character's head. She's currently in a halfway house, recovering from a bad car accident which killed her boyfriend. It's novel about searching, about connections, about family--and lack thereof--about love and loss and sex and drugs. All the good makings of a novel. It's not for the squeamish, it's not for anyone who can't handle drug use, recovery, addiction (of all kinds--sex, drugs, and food), and the impulses that ultimately make us cracked, flawed human beings.
