Plot Conflict Theme When I first heard about this I thought it was good because the point of view is a teenager Allison shows perspective by sharing her thoughts on ideas throughout the story I decided to read this book because the blurb interested me and it seemed like a book I would enjoy.
This novel is about a 16 year old girl called Allison Avery who befriends the new girl, the beautiful Roxie Green Allison meets the devil and wants to be Gorgeous so she sells something to the devil Not her soul, but her cellphone This book fits in the category on the bingo board of your own choice I think this category was good to have on the board because then I can read something that is not necessarily confined to one category My favorite quote from this book is after Allison got off the phone with Roxie But the devil was right Telling who has your best interests at heart is not an easy trick I like this quote because it reflects the way that Alli Summary The second book in a trilogy dealing with the Avery sisters, whose mother, the breadwinner, has just lost her job affecting them in a variety of ways This book is about the middle daughter Allison who has always felt herself to be the least pretty and least valued of the family She ends up selling her cell to the devil for a chance at Gorgeousness.
I know that I read Lucky, the first book, but I didn t really remember it That is okay these books can be read in any order as they cover the same events from the different perspectives It looks like the third book will be called Brilliant and is due out in May I have to say that I love all three covers for this trilogy they reGorgeous I mostly liked Allison especially her obsession with the slightly obscure historical figure Gouverneur Morris and I really liked her new best frien
Best first two sentences ever I sold my cell phone to the devil.
In my own defense, it had been a really crappy day I picked this book up at the library and laughed out loud when I read those first two sentences SOLD In fact the first two pages are super concise Succinct Great voice Funny And thenI dunno It wasn t awful It just wasn t good Maybe I m just not a fan of the beautiful girl who doesn t realize how hot she is I mean, REALLY And how many times do the other characters hit her Allison Avery over the head telling her how hot she is, and she s like, No, no, no, you re all making fun of me Come on, dummy If that s the case and she s really that dense, then she needs to be dense across the board But she can t be insight Okay, this book is very bad, forget ehh It doesn t really take itself seriously There s the cliche girl who is the middle child and feels like her family treats her older sister and the baby of the family way better than her And she is a MAJOR pushover Her so called best friend Jade basically judges any and every one from the amount of make up they were to their grades and how many extracurriculars they re involved in I especially don t like Jade because she tells Allison that by skipping ONE DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL IN THE 9TH GRADE colleges weren t going to accept her Um, okay because that s not a strict exaggeration And she expects everyone to abide by her rules And if they don t, she gives them the silent treatment It s like her go to solution For example Allison laughs too loudly at a joke Jade makes in the cafeteria and Jade and their other
