An intense look at the rules of high school attraction - and the price that's paid for them. It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.

Great concept, well written.

Would you listen to The List again? Why?

I would of course listen to 'The List' again is it a well written book that takes you through the thoughts of 8 girls who are named on the list, it tells the stores behind each girl how then ended up on the list and the effect it has good and bad.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The List?

Memorable moment it the book would be the reactions of the girls, towards the list at bringing and end of the book, and the effect a simple stamped piece of paper with one persons opinion, it has on there lives.

What about Allison McLemore’s performance did you like?

she was great with voices for each character and portrayed then different from each other keep it wast to remember who was who especially with the seperated chapter of each character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

for me it was the whole books ability to channelled how these girls would of felt, being names on a list of this kind, especially the way teenage girls mind work, and the inside turmoil that can be caused by a list of this kind.

Any additional comments?

A great teen read and really gets in the mind of teenage girls.

Great book

It hooks you right from the start and guides you from different views and although getting used to names and connections takes a little while it's worth it! With a small twist to get your mind clicking!

Engaging and Entertaining

I loved The List – a story of eight teenage girls, four named the prettiest in their school and four named the ugliest who have to come to terms with both how they see themselves and how others see them.

The List manages to follow not one but EIGHT different characters all with more depth, poignancy and intricacy then most YA books with a single bland heroine manage.

Every girl has her own unique story and every one somehow manages to get their due in what is a pretty succinct book.

The outcast who wears the UGLY label as a badge of honour for all the wrong reasons.

The popular girl whose attempts to overcome an eating disorder are put into jeopardy when the PRETTY label validates her negative behaviour.

The beautiful cheerleader labelled UGLY, not for what is on her outside but on her inside.

The quiet home-schooled girl suddenly in the spotlight now that she is PRETTY.

I’m amazed she managed to fit so many well-done stories into a single narrative!

I would have liked a little more wrap-up and I’ve have happily read even more from the girls but it was a rare satisfying stand-alone read!

I think this is would be a stellar teenage read but I’ve seen some parents complain about the sex, alcohol and language in other reviews. I personally think it was all handled incredibly well – not preachy, nor exploitive just eerily relatable. Maybe a little too accurate for some?

Still I think the messages of empowerment and acceptance makes The List more than worth a read for teen girls. Older reads though, can definitely enjoy the incredibly well drawn characters too so I highly recommend the list to everyone!

And then it ended...

The actual story itself was great but I was very disappointed by the ending, it just kind of ended and I felt like there was still bits the needed to be said or at least tied up. As well the reader did do a good job but the male voices were not the best.
