Beth has always been “The Beast”—that’s what everyone at school calls her because of her awkward height, facial scars, and thick glasses. Beth’s only friend is geeky, golden-haired Scott. That is, until she’s selected to be her choir’s soprano soloist, and receives the makeover that will change her life forever.
When Beth’s choir travels to Switzerland, she meets Derek: pale, brooding, totally dreamy. Derek’s untethered passion—for music, and for Beth—leaves her breathless. Because in Derek’s eyes? She’s not The Beast, she’s The Beauty.
When Beth comes home, Scott, her best friend in the world, makes a confession that leaves her completely torn. Should she stand by sweet, steady Scott or follow the dangerous, intense new feelings she has for Derek?
The closer Beth gets to Derek, the further away he seems. Then Beth discovers that Derek’s been hiding a dark secret from her …one that could shatter everything. (Summary from Goodreads)

My Review: This book was okay. It was a pretty quick read. I didn't like the choices Beth made and she was kind of annoying sometimes so maybe that is why I didn't think more of it.

  1. I'm sorry you felt that way about this book. It's one of my favorites. I felt how torn she was and desperate she was at the end. And then just a shell at the end. And there was Scott understanding finally. Scott misunderstood her so much and wanted her for all the wrong reasons. But because of the choices she made, that made her the girl Scott wanted. She couldn't walk away, she had to stay to the end. I was crying, it touched me deeply.

    I guess that's why there are so many books out there. To each his own right? I see some other books I'll have to try out. Like your site.
