I used to be afraid to touch contemporary YA fiction with a ten-foot pole. My, how times have changed!! This week I am waiting on My Life in Black and White by Natasha Friend. This looks great- and the cover is cool, even if it does feature a Big Face girl.
What if you lost the thing that made you who you are?
Lexi has always been stunning. Her butter-colored hair and perfect features have helped her attract friends, a boyfriend, and the attention of a modeling scout. But everything changes the night Lexi's face goes through a windshield. Now she's not sure what's worse: the scars she'll have to live with forever, or what she saw going on between her best friend and her boyfriend right before the accident. With the help of her trombone-playing, defiantly uncool older sister and a guy at school recovering from his own recent trauma, Lexi learns she's much more than just a pretty face. (Good Reads)
My Life in Black and White comes out June 28! What are you Waiting on? (PS, a toast of our whiskey sour to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting the weekly awesomeness that is WoW).
