Faye Andrews may have systematically launched an attack on some of the pretty girls who threw shade her way, and she may have mugged an old woman who, after a series of unfortunate events, she leaves for dead, but a conscience lives somewhere inside her tiny 14 year old, tortured body. And if Ebenezer Scrooge could do a 180, why not her? Why not us all?!
Revenge Of A Not-So-Pretty Girl (A Junior Library Guild selection & American Library Association nominee for Best Young Adult Fiction 2013) is told through the witty, tormented voice of fourteen-year-old Faye, a young teen living in 1984 Brooklyn, New York, who copes with her mother's abuse by stealing with her friends. But when robbing an elderly woman almost turns to murder, she gains an opportunity to learn new truths about life. To order your copy, click on one of the following:
A sample of reviews:
Kirkus Book Review Magazine - "This exhilarating, generous-hearted tale with a smart, funny, caustically observant protagonist is about so much more than revenge: distinguishing what matters from what doesn’t, taking risks, making mistakes and paying for them. Blythe explores issues of physical appearance in rare depth. Some mistakes aren’t fixable, Faye learns, but she’ll keep trying to fix them anyway. Solidly grounded in the gritty realities of daily life, Faye's discoveries feel earned. A compelling and believable journey."
