  1. 2.5Just to issue a quick warning I m not sure what is to be considered a spoiler for this book as everything seemed glaringly obvious to me but please don t read this if you d like to be completely unaware of anything to do with Angie s condition even though it is made known relatively early.This book started very well but became ridiculous with every chapter that I read A number of subplots were introduced that did nothing but further complicate the story whilst actually being an attempt to fa [...]

  2. This is such a thought provoking read I can t stop thinking about it, I felt so emotionally captivated by Angie s story I love the all the psychology stuff and the mystery I love how raw and real it is I do have to warn that it is disturbing and mature at times This is just one of those books that will stick with me The mystery plot line is slightly predictable, but still a crazy and intense journey

  3. Everyone needs to go and read this book right now One of the most thought provoking, unputdownable books I have ever read I m sure this book will stay with me for years to come.

  4. This is the perfect example of a book you should go into completely blind I did not read the synopsis beforehand I think I may have months ago but I couldn t recall anything , nor did I even know the genre I went in with zero expectation, and came out of it baffled by how it blew me out of the water Since I think everyone should do like me and go in without a clue, I will not ruin the moment for you either But I can safely tell you the very basics without changing your reading experience Angie w [...]

  5. I highly recommend this book I was so engrossed in the book that I had no idea of the time I finally realized I should probably get to sleep as it was 3am and I hadn t stopped A tough and emotional read due to the themes it entailed but I was extremely impressed by the writing and delivery I have always been very interested in the subject matter I m not going to say much as I really don t want to give anything away I will say it impressed me how much the author must have researched her subjects [...]

  6. This review contains spoilers, please read at your own risk I ll keep this brief because I only have so much time I m willing to dedicate to talking about books I didn t particularly like and view spoiler YOLO hide spoiler Despite the hook of the premise and strong, if disorienting, opening Pretty Girl 13 is an uncomfortable and I don t meant that in a compelling, interesting way , mess of a novel It relies heavily on the protagonist s Dissociative Identity Disorder DID and her ordeal view spoil [...]

  7. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsWant this pretty Clicky herePretty Girl 13 is one heck of a ride Psychological thrillers aren t really my thing I ve always thought of them as wellweird and just creepy However, this book was surprisingly good While it had flaws, Pretty Girl 13 is a refreshing and unique read Thirteen year old Angie goes on a Girl Scout camping trip in the woods One minute she s walking in the woods, next minute she s walking up the road to her house Three years later Angie, lost [...]

  8. Uma abordagem muito boa sobre o Transtorno Dissociativo de Identidade TDI J um assunto que eu AMO ler e estudar sobre Sou viciado em ficar buscando document rios, hist rias e relatos E esse foi o primeiro livro que eu li retratando o problema de forma mais direta e expl cita Apesar de ser uma leitura que me entreteve muito por causa do assunto, tiveram alguns defeitos que me incomodaram consideravelmente Mas falo deles daqui a pouco.Primeiro o que eu gostei o mist rio O livro me deixou curioso e [...]

  9. Liz did her research and did it well Especially during chapter 2 where she s being examined Her writing is very easy, very fluid and you feel like you ve been transported in Angie s world, forgetting about your reality You re literally dropped into the mystery surrounding Angie and at first you re just as disoriented as her There are different clues as to the horrors that could come to be Now I don t know about you, but when there s a problem to solve, my mind will fast forward with a million di [...]

  10. I really enjoyed reading a book about someone with Dissociative Identity Disorder I have to admit though I hated her dad and Greg and Yuncle And the last three chapters WOW It was a definitely an interesting read Very different.

  11. Longer review to come soon after finals crush my soul on Tuesday, but in shortWhat a thrilling ride and an amazing look inside Multiple personality Disorder, something to rarely discussed in the mental health world or YA books, for that matter I thought the author handled it very tastefully and obviously did her research While I did think some of the main characters other personalities were a little far fetched and not fully developed, overall this was a compelling read Highly recommended

  12. Fascinating subject, and a hard one to tackle for YA in particular I ve mixed feelings about some of the things it missed, so I think it falls somewhere in the middle of books that involve kidnapping Possible review to come.

  13. This book is so many things that there are an endless amount of ways to fully describe it It is heart wrenching, absorbing, shocking, enthralling, unique, etc I just absolutely loved it Thank you to my friend Johanna for telling me about it, because I began it this morning and have already finished it This is a memorable book that I think is so worth every second of the time spent reading it.

  14. BookNook Young Adult book reviewsPretty Girl 13 completely took me by surprise This book is really heavy It s dark, gritty, and deals with some seriously intense issues I adored this book, but not in the usual girly, giddy, fan girl scream way I adored Pretty Girl 13 in the sense that it really shook me to my core and left me speechless It s an extremely sad and emotionally draining book, but it will leave you with dark and heavy thoughts that are sure to change you.My biggest fear going into Pr [...]

  15. This started really promising and the further in I got, the ridiculous it got.So, in the preface, view spoiler I figured out that Angie had Dissociative Identity Disorder DID from the writing alone It wasn t that hard to piece together The multiple voices inside, the way she referred to herself as we, and the way the voices said they would protect her hide spoiler as she went missing view spoiler She d been abducted from her Girl Scout camp hide spoiler Angie returns to her home three years lat [...]

  16. Wow This was a rollercoaster ride I cannot say that I can t put it down because I started reading late yesterday and I was so creeped out that I m sure to get nightmares when I sleep, so I had to stop But when I woke up, a bright sunny day, I dived back in and then I didn t put it down It s been a long time since I read a book this fast, less than 24hours, because I ve been a slow reader recently I didn t expect anything from this book, so the creepiness came as a surprise I got a bad case of go [...]

  17. I m really not sure how to start this review And forgive me, but there are going to have to SPOILERS here I ll try to keep them to a minimum though.I really wanted to like this book The cover is so cool, the concept so intriguing The structure had potential for real brilliance, too the way Angela s other personalities tell their part of the story in second person and through notes they leave for Angela But the potential wasn t met, and I found the story less and less believable as I read.First o [...]

  18. At times, this book was uncomfortable to read Rather than being an exciting thriller about a girl s kidnapping and escape, it s about Angie s slow journey back from a three year captivity not a physical journey, but a mental one.In the aftermath of her captivity and escape, Angie remembers absolutely nothing about the time that passed between waking up at Girl Scout Camp one morning and finding herself standing on her street three years later with a bag full of clothes that definitely aren t her [...]

  19. This was a really interesting and engaging thriller There were parts that seemed very realistic and then other parts that were a little far out there and cliche but overall a really good book TW sexual abuse, kidnapping, child abuse, and violence.Review to come.

  20. A very gripping and interesting book I actually really enjoyed it, even considering the troubling topic of child abuse The author did an excellent job of balancing the gritty realism with a hopeful undertone.Angie is thirteen when she is abducted and kept captive for three years, after this time she returns home without any memory of the time passing, and not realizing she has aged at all.Throughout medical and psychological examinations, we learn that Angie is suffering from Dissociative Identi [...]

  21. Actual rating is 3.5, decided to go with the lower due to predictability.What a riot reading this book was I have to say that I was surprised to check and see that this book clocks in at just over 350 pages after reading my egalley I breezed through Pretty Girl 13 so fast that I thought for sure it would be in the 200 page range A story that plays games with your mind and keeps you wondering what will happen just around the corner with every page, this is not one to be missed for sure.Angie went [...]

  22. On the surface, this was a five star book When I wasn t reading it, I was thinking about it When I wasn t thinking about itwell, that didn t happen Too many books focus on the kidnap itself The time spent being kidnapped I liked that this looked at the after effects I liked that it focused on Angie coming home Because there s trauma there too Different, but still trauma.The book starts with Angie s return home It s been three years since she was taken, but to Angie, no time has passed at all In [...]

  23. I have had this book on my shelf since right before I started blogging, but I ve only owned a copy of it for a few months I am honestly kicking myself for not reading it sooner because it had EVERYTHING in it that I love It was the perfect example of a dark contemporary, which I love Dark, horrifying themes throughout the book Things that made my stomach turn It was actually very reminiscent of All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark That was another book I absolutely loved It s an oldie, but [...]

  24. I really wanted to like this book, but I have read way too many true life accounts of multiple personalities to be able to take it seriously The plot twists were way too obviously foreshadowed, and there are major plot holes.SPOILER ALERTS view spoiler To start with, it takes WAY than a few months to integrate multiple personalities we re talking years, maybe DECADES Ridiculous Second, Angie s reactions to her new memories and integrations are equally ridiculous She figures out that she has an [...]

  25. It s been hours and hours since I finished this book, yet, I hadn t write a review What could I say, which words could I use to say how much I loved this book The story was so interesting I had nvcer read about multiple personalities but found it to be very interesting The main character and her alters were so strong for going through what they both and all went through.I also learned a lot about DID and found it very interesting I m also amazed by how human s brain can work and what it can do I [...]


  27. TW Molestation, and Sexual Assualt, Abuse, PedophiliaThis is a story I went into not expecting too much because I really never heard anything about it I just know when I first joined GRs years ago I read the synopsis and really found it interesting Typically, when you choose a book for your TBR list from years ago your thoughts and interests change But for some reason I still wanted to read this and that is why when I saw it I bought it, that is why it has been on my TBR for the longest amount o [...]

  28. This book makes me feel very conflicted It s the sort of novel that gets you invested from the very first chapter, and holds you hostage until the last page Angie was abducted from a Girl Scout camping trip when she was thirteen years old She returns to her family s home three years later, with no memory of what had happened to her With the help of a savvy psychologist, Angie discovers that she suffers from dissociative identity disorder, and her other alters or personalities hold memories of wh [...]

  29. Can also be read on The Social Potato.Thank you Edelweiss and Katherine Tegen Books for the free copy of this novel in exchange for a review This did not influence my review in any way.Despite the three stars I gave, I did somehow enjoy this I love reading psychological thrillers, because I find the human psyche intimidating and fascinating, and books that explore this are far and few between Liz Coley writes a rather unique approach to this with Pretty Girl 13, providing us, readers, a chance t [...]
