Plus by Veronica Chambers

Chambers, Veronica Plus, 271 pgs. Penguin Books Ltd, 2009. $8.99. Language-PG(8 swears); Mature Content-PG; Violence-G; When Bee unexpectedly gets dumped by her boyfriend, she thinks it is the end of the world. Little does she know she has another surprise just lurking around the corner...she becomes a supermodel, and Brian wants her back, sounds like a win-win situation. But is this the life Bee really wants? I liked the book because it was predictable in some parts but in others it was completely unexpected. It showed the reality of how quickly things in your life can change. The author inserted too many 'saids' when they could have been replaced with another word with a similar or more specific meaning. MS-ADVISABLE. Student Reviewer:CGM
