An electrifying debut novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Some Girls.

Bebe Baker is an ex-everything: ex-stripper, ex-Christian, ex-drug addict, ex-pretty girl.

It's been one year since the car accident that killed her boyfriend left her scarred and shaken. Flanked by an eccentric posse of friends, she is serving out a self-imposed sentence at a halfway house, while trying to finish cosmetology school. Amid the rampant diagnoses, over-medication, compulsive eating, and acrylic nails of Los Angeles, Bebe looks for something to believe in before something--her past, the dangerously magnetic men in her life, her own bad choices--knocks her off course again.

The e book that downloads for this title is The Race, not Pretty. I am trying to read Pretty by Jillian Lauren, but that is not the title linked here.

On the back cover of this book, a critic remarks that this story is too good to be read just once. I checked out the book a second time, not remembering that I had already read it. The critic is right. What a great read!
