Review

Here's another book where the blurb promises more than the book delivers.

This time instead of glossing over the important issues, we're presented with a story line that borders on unbelievable.
I'm not saying that something like this couldn't have happened, but goodness. There's too much here that just doesn't make sense and there's even more than what I listed.

Combine the unbelievability with the shortness of the novel and we're left with disappointment. Such a Pretty Girl is another one of those books that I just can't recommend.

Rating

2 out of 5 stars
