Summary: What if you lost the thing that made you who you are?

Lexi has always been stunning. Her butter-colored hair and perfect features have helped her attract friends, a boyfriend, and the attention of a modeling scout. But everything changes the night Lexi's face goes through a windshield. Now she's not sure what's worse: the scars she'll have to live with forever, or what she saw going on between her best friend and her boyfriend right before the accident. With the help of her trombone-playing, defiantly uncool older sister and a guy at school recovering from his own recent trauma, Lexi learns she's much more than just a pretty face.

My Thoughts: I have been giving a lot of books 4 cupcakes lately because I really enjoy reading them but I don't love them like a 5 cupcake book. I want too, but they don't always live up to my expectations.

We are introduced to Lexie who has always known she is beautiful. She's popular and pretty and has it all, until one night she walks in on her best friend doing something she shouldn’t with Lexie’s boyfriend. She storms out and gets a ride home from her best friend's brother. They ram into a tree and he's left with a few broken bones and she's left with a messed up face that needs skin grafts, and lots of remodeling.

Lexie is left with the scars of her face and her life. She loses her beauty, her boyfriend, and her best friend in one night. She goes into a depression and doesn't know how to cope. She meets a new guy. I really liked him. He was sweet and actually had a personality.

My Life In Black And White was a really good novel, I just don't want to spoil it for you. I want you to feel what she feels. I want you to experience her loss so you can truly understand and appreciate this novel. I had a lot of feelings racing through me, I could see how she would see the world after this event.

Overall: Quick read for me. It was interesting, and the story just flowed right along in your head. She described things so clearly and you really understood her thoughts and feelings. Part of me didn't want to hate her best friend, especially after finding out the reason she did what she did. It wasn't right but I still felt for her a little bit. I also liked Lexie's sister. Totally a rad sister even if she didn't know it most of the time.

I really enjoyed this novel and I can't wait to read whatever Friend writes next.

Cover: Love it! It’s pretty!
