Synopsis

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.

RazOrBill

I haven't read anything by Friend before so I was a bit hesitant going in but her writing flows smoothly and while there are no poetic gems as in John Green's books, there are several genius scenes that simply express a whole ton of complicated things.
