Beautiful Malice - Rebecca  James THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR A YOUNG ADULT READER There is no way in hell I would let my young teen read this book. Just another example of an overhyped book! This book is filled with drugs/alcohol, sex and foul language by 17 year olds. To me, I kept thinking of the movie "Fear" starring Reece Witherspoon and Alyssa Milano..can't tell ya why.. If this book is not targeted to the YA audience, I would give it still one star because of its' predictability and superficial writing. I can't believe this book was a finalist for an award. IMO, when a book has to use the "props" listed earlier it is to prop up a pretty crappy book. I honestly can't tell the reader of this review why I finished reading this book except to blame it on my OCD!
