Publisher's Description

Her friends once thought she was perfect. Now she must face the mirror--and herself--to discover what true beauty is.

Ellie Summerfield has everything a girl could want--she's beautiful, she's Senior Class President, has a calendar full of social engagements, volunteer commitments, and church activities. In short, she's perfect, according to most of the students at West Redding High School. But something is bothering Ellie, like a loose string on a dress she can feel but can't see. Does she really love her boyfriend, Ryan? Who are her true friends? And is she really happy in her picture-perfect life?

Then in the course of a few minutes, the loose string in Ellie's life completely unravels. Forever changed, she must face herself as she discovers what it really means to be beautiful.

    This review was written for Beautiful.
    I read at least a couple of hundred books a year and in the last ten years, I can think of only four or five I stopped reading. This was one of those books. After reading almost a hundred pages, I still saw no point to continue reading as it just too boring for words.

    I wasn't sure houw I would like this book, it being a YA novel and what not. But as I sat down and read it, I found alot about this book that I loved. I liked the plot and I loved all the characters. A story of a popular and beautiful high school girl who feels that she's missing something in her perfect world. like it's not quite so perfect. Then she faces tragedy and it forever changes her life. The author uses wonderful characters that blend together perfectly. Reading this story, I felt like I could truly connect with these characters. I felt their pain and cried with them. I laughed with them, and the best of all, I prayed with them. This is a book that I think every young girl should read. Whether they are popular, in the "out" crowd, or just needing a boost of encouragement during the high school years of parties and homecomings and dances, this is the book for them. It is well written and life like, and they will understand God's love the THEM in the end and the TRUE meaning of being beautiful. A 4 star praise to this author and her Beautiful book! *A special thanks to the author and her pubisher for providing me with a review copy!*

    Beautiful stirred my heart several times. I found my eyes welling with tears of both heartache and joy as Ellie discovered herself for the first time while she healed from the accident. The author did a great job with character development and making them three dimensional. I loved the interaction between the heroine and the guys in her life. There were some amazing heroes and secondary characters in this book. Even the parents were genuine and believable. I didn't see any plastic characters or artificial faith. This story had depth and heart. It in no way trivialized the trauma this girl went through and did a great job pointing out how sometimes what people say in awkward situations just hurts people more (God has a plan - true, but grieving people don't necessarily want to hear that when they are hurting.) I, too, felt her pain and the grief she went through. Everything she experienced made sense and was totally fitting her situation. In short, I was this girl. I went through the valley with her, which explains its profound impact on my heart. I can totally see this novel opening the eyes of many girls who have taken the good things in their life for granted. And like Ellie's sister, Megan, this story should change them. After going through something like Ellie experienced, most things do seem awfully petty and stupid. I highly recommend this book.
