Pretty Review, Pretty Giveaway...Woo!

I was recently given the opportunity to review the book "Pretty" by Jillian Lauren.
Here's what "Pretty" is all about:

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.
For me, "Pretty" is not so pretty.  It's a gritty story that has you right in the middle of the drama pretty much from page one.  It's an easy read but not easy enough that you don't stop thinking of Bebe when you put the book down.  This is one novel that keeps your interests and doesn't wane from the topic. 
Jillian Lauren paints a grim picture of life in halfway.   All the characters in the book are so vibrant that you could easily pick them out in a crowd if you had to, or heck a line up with some of these characters.
So if you want a novel that you can become immersed in yet read with easy flow, this is the one for you.
Good news my faithful peeps, I have been given a book to giveaway (Holla!) 
So you can enter the giveaway and/or purchase one over at Amazon.
What's nice about buying the book is that the first 250 people who order "Pretty" & email the receipt to pretty.the.book@gmail.com will receive a Limited Edition run of the "Pretty" neckllace, made by Fairy Tale Jewels.com.
