Look. In order to look, you have to see. What you see depends on where you look. Where you look depends on your perspective. And your perspective... depends on who you are. And who you are often depends on how others see you.

Meet Meghan Ball and Aimee Zorn. Meghan is overweight and Aimee is anorexic. But take a closer look.

Which is exactly what Madeleine George manages to do in her novel, Looks. There is nothing remote about her prose and her descriptions as she delves into the world of looks, friendship, betrayal, revenge, and self-image. This book stayed with me long after I put it down.

Find it at your library.
