(Book Review) Pretty: A Novel by Jillian Lauren
I read books about parenting, saving money, Christianity, cooking, and how-to-do-everything-better-and-faster. It is not often that I just sit down to read…and definitely not read a book about a woman…that has nothing to do with the last sentence. And, that’s exactly what I did with Pretty: A Novel by Jillian Lauren.
Bebe Baker is an ex-everything: ex-stripper, ex-Christian, ex-drug addict, ex-pretty girl.
What Did I Think of the Book?
It was a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Bebe’s journey. Although I cannot personally relate to the things that Bebe used to be (ex-stripper, ex-Christian, ex-drug addict, ex-pretty girl), I can relate to a woman on a journey who tries lots of things, right and wrong, in her quest to find her (true and pretty) self. The book is painted with vivid descriptions of life as all of Bebe’s five senses experience them. You feel like you’re right there with her. I admired Bebe’s honesty, courage, and desire to make positive changes in her life, despite the hand that she had to play.
