Everything Beautiful By: Simmone Howell

Title: Everything Beautiful
Author: Simmone Howell
Length: 304 pages
Format: Hardcover
Price: $16.99

Let's start with the fact that Riley Rose doesn't believe in God, and when her father and his girlfriend send her to Spirit Ranch, a Christian camp somewhere in the Australian desert, she refuses to participate or make friends in her week long sentence to the camp. Riley is a "self-proclaimed bad girl." Her first impression of the camp is horrible; her two roomies walk in and the first thing they comment on is her weight! But luckily for her, her best friend Chloe has devised a plan for her escape to make it to the hottie Ben Sebatini's party. When Riley meets Dylan Luck, a recent paraplegic and an alumni camper, she knows being stuck at camp will be a lot more interesting. Riley has to get her beliefs straight otherwise she'll be stuck in a ditch for the rest of the week!

The book was very good. I like the main character's voice, even though I don't like what she's doing in the book. I admire her confidence, the way she stands up to people. I really liked when she talks to people and boosts other people's self-esteem, but on the negative side, I think she needs a boost herself. It's written really well.

Rating: 4 out of 5 chocolate bars
Apropriateness: Death rating for sexual content, swearing and drugs. Bum Bum BAHHHHHH
Cover Thoughts: ..... I really don't have an opinion on the cover, it is just a cover..........
