The List Book Review

The List by Siobhan Vivian

The book The List by Siobhan Vivian is a young adult story. It’s about this list that is hung every year in the school. The list contains the names of eight girls in the high school. Out of the eight girls four of them are listed as the prettiest in their grades and the other four are listed as the ugliest in their grades. The book is set to be written as a different person’s point of view for every chapter. I wasn’t very interested in the story because of the format of the book. It was very confusing to keep up with every character since every chapter was different and had a different person’s point of view. In the book the girls prove the peer pressure that they are going through and all the drama that are caused from the list. The author showed what most girls face in their teenage years and that is not being able to accept yourself for who you are and trying to be someone one who you are not. It really showed what is going on in this world. Every chapter explains how the girls are different and it shows their point of view. With eight perspectives of the story it was a lot to handle, so I wasn’t that focused. That’s all because of the peer pressure and everything that a teenage has to face in order to survive their teenage years. It would be wrong to say that it’s only the teenagers who face this but it’s mostly the teenagers. Therefore, I didn’t really like this book so I wouldn’t offer someone else to read it mainly because of the format and the confusion. Mirza H.; Teen Reviewer
