Review by Lisa Kane

Sweet YA read about Lucy, a girl with self esteem issues. Bullied in her freshman year of high school, she made the social mistake of being as good if not better than her older classmates on the basket ball team. They made her life hell and she learned to hide out, to lose herself so the teasing and taunting would stop.

Marissa is one of the beautiful ones. Somehow she became friends with Lucy and is teaching her how to dress herself to attract guys. It seems to be working because she is dating Zach so she must be doing better..he must like her for who she is right? Lucy may not be as thrilled with Marissa as she makes out, but she isn't ready to go back into the social leprosy world that she came from.

The only fly in the ointman...Justin Marshall. He is dating the most popular girl in school, Jennifer and is the guy every girl drools over and every guy wants to hand out with. He is cocky and arrogant and Lucy can't stand him. Right?

So when she is caught lying to her parents about something, she is forced to work a job her parents line up for her-painting houses for the rest of the summer. One of her co-workers-Justin.

What happens when these two spend tons of time together and Lucy realizes there is so much more to Justin than his looks. But he has a girlfriend and she had a boyfriend. This one has angst and betrayal and some social issues that cause great hurt at any age. I really liked it and am jumping in to the sequel; Perfectly Messy.
