Crazy Beautiful

by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

Summary: In an explosion of his own making, Lucius blew his arms off. Now he has hooks. He chose hooks because they were cheaper. He chose hooks because he wouldn’t outgrow them so quickly. He chose hooks so that everyone would know he was different, so he would scare even himself.

Then he meets Aurora. The hooks don’t scare her. They don’t keep her away. In fact, they don’t make any difference at all to her.

But to Lucius, they mean everything. They remind him of the beast he is inside. Perhaps Aurora is his Beauty, destined to set his soul free from its suffering.

Or maybe she’s just a girl who needs love just like he does.

My Thoughts: We meet Lucius who got himself into an accident of his own making and blew his arms off. We meet Aurora who is the new girl in school. Lucius and Aurora have a instant connection. There were a lot of side characters that just added personality to the book. I loved this book. It was romantic and gives me hope for everything in this world. Bad things happen, we make mistakes. This story was like a fairytale and I absolutely adored it. I liked Lucius and I liked Aurora. This book is told in alternating viewpoints which made it even more special. We got to experience how they each felt in the same situation. This book left me with a smile on my face and I recommend it to everyone. Read it now!!!! I loved it. All I can say is WOW!!!!!!! This is such a short review, I can't seem to put into words how much I loved this one! Only one word comes to mind: Terrific!

Overall: GREAT! WONDERFUL! ROMANTIC. A must read.

Cover: I love the cover. Love the black and white angle.
