Book Review: Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Think being the new kid in school is tough? Imagine being Lucius Wolfe, the kid who blew his own hands off in a misguided home chemistry experiment. Now you have hooks instead of hands. They remind you of what you did - not only did you lose your hands, you destroyed your family's home. Your family reminds you about what you did CONSTANTLY. Your peers look at you real funny and talk about how weird you are right in your face. The only saving grace is Aurora. She's new, too. And gorgeous. She's the only one, besides the school guard who treats you like a human being. Then you get on the wrong side of Jessup Tristan. He wants Aurora for himself. Can life suck any more than it already does? A modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" with a modern twist. It's a good, quick read, too.
