During junior year of high school, star student and stellar lacrosse player Alice Burton grew four inches, and, thanks to her mom’s experimental health food products, she'd lost 20 pounds. Alice has mixed feelings about her surprising transformation.
On the plus side: Chris Thompson, the hot college guy she has a crush on, talks to her.
On the minus side: Her dad's creepy friend, professional athlete Karl Bell, lets his eyes, and his hugs, linger too long.
After a disturbing encounter in a dark hallway, Alice realizes the response some men have to her new body isn’t just disgusting, it’s dangerous. Her life is further complicated by her parents’ crumbling finances and the family’s entanglement with Karl.
Set in Pittsburgh in 1992, Wasted Pretty is about a girl determined to protect her body, her future, and her heart.

How could you?
I will start with the easiest part that is the narration, it was good a few back ground noises but nothing off putting or taking away from the story being told, would I have preferred an age and gender appropriate narrator of cause. But all and all the narrator did good work. Now for the book! How could it just end like that? I was listening to this book I laughed, I cried and I could relate I gave it 5 stars in my head and then it just ended. I really enjoyed it so much, it got my out of my listening slump. But I don't know now. Is there going to be another book? When? Please don't change the narrator if there is going to be a follow up on her story unless it is from someone else perspective.
