The List - Siobhan Vivian The list in this book is one that's posted every year at Mount Washington High School. A list that names the prettiest girl in each grade, and the ugliest. It would be easy to take a topic like this and turn it into a book that's melodramatic. Or cheesy. Or preachy. But for me, this book achieved what it set out to accomplish. I found it an engaging, thoughtful, and nuanced look at some of the ways girls and women can be objectified and some of the ways they might respond.Full review on my blog: http://jenryland.blogspot.com/2012/03/standalone-saturday-5-list.html
