Emily needs a change of scenery. She's been pegged as the "arty girl" by the kids in school - even her own friends. There's some truth to that, but there's more to how she sees the world than painting or drawing, and no one seems to understand that. So when Emily gets the chance to go to an art program in Philadelphia for the summer, she jumps at it. A new cast of characters enters her life. . . and suddenly she has to figure out who she wants to be. She's gone from the suburbs where everyone's trying to be the same to a school where everyone's trying to be unique. The rules may have changed, but the pressures haven't. With wit and empathy, Siobhan Vivian goes straight to the heart of a teen girl's search for identity - including the pain and heartache we have to go through to figure out who we are.

Las más guapas.Las más feas.Ocurre todos los años: una lista se expone por todo el edificio, se cuelga en todos los paneles y taquillas, y es, simplemente, imposible de ignorar. Todo el mundo conoce el juego. En la lista figuran los nombres de las chicas que han sido elegidas como las más guapas y las más feas de cada curso. ¿Elegidas por quién? Nadie sabe. ¿Con qué propósito? A nadie le importa. Lo único crucial es saber quién figura en la lista y si tu nombre aparece en ella.Esta es la historia de ocho chicas en su primer curso de instituto, todas ellas han sido seleccionadas como las más guapas y las más feas ese año. Cada una de ellas tiene una historia detrás absolutamente diferente, cada una, una personalidad distinta, con una voz propia y miedos, sueños y deseos diferentes. La interconexión de estas ocho historias nos mostrará lo cruel que puede llegar a ser la vida en los institutos.Reseñas:«Una escritura inteligente y ágil que expone el peligro inherente en la objetivización de las chicas jóvenes. Un tema que normalmente no es tomado en serio en literatura Young Adult». The New York Times«Con unos personajes complejos y muy diferenciados, The List trata de forma coherente y preocupada la feminidad, la amistad, las relaciones interpersonales, los problemas alimenticios y lo que significa ser dejado de lado. La autora expone como tesis principal que la belleza y la fealdad no siempre son una cuestión de apariencia».Publishers Weekly
