The List

The List
Siobhan Vivian

It happens every September– the list is posted all over school. Two girls are picked from each year. One is named the prettiest, one the ugliest.The girls who aren't picked are quickly forgotten. The girls who are become the centre of attention, and each reacts differently to the experience.With THE LIST, Siobhan Vivian deftly takes you into the lives of eight very different girls struggling with issues of identity, self-esteem, and the judgements of their peers. Prettiest or ugliest, once you're on the list, you'll never be the same.

SIOBHAN VIVIAN is the author of the young adult novel The List, as well as The Last Boy and Girl in the World, Not That Kind of Girl, Same Difference, A Little Friendly Advice, and the Burn for Burn trilogy, cowritten with Jenny Han.
