Book Review #1081 Outside Beauty by Cynthia Kadohata
Book Review #1081
Outside Beauty by Cynthia Kadohata
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
I did not like this book at all. I was a little surprised because I've read two other wonderful books by Kadohata - one which won the Newbery! So I was really shocked when I downright disliked this story. The setting and realism of the novel didn't pull off well. I felt like the characters were one-dimensional and I couldn't understand why they had such a firece devotion to each other. It wasn't a happy novel and I didn't like the ending. I would not recommend.
