Teen Book Reviews

Book Review of Painting Caitlyn by Kimberly Joy Peters

The saying "don't judge a book by it's cover" doesn't seem to apply to teen readers. It's true teens judge books by their appence. First of all, the book has to look cool. Second, it has to be long and have thick, small print. As teens we assume that big books are good books, we ignore the nice short stories on the teen library shelves. I picked up this book because I was bored, I never expected to be picking up a book that i would never want
to put down. As you might have guessed Painting Caitlyn is one of those small books, but the size of the story doesn't take away from the quality. This book is about a girl named Caitlyn, who has the perfect boyfriend. She sees that she has the perfect boyfriend, but she doesn't see that she is in an abusive relationship. It takes everyone who loves her to help her see that he isn't treating her well. I would recommend this book to
any girl. The ending was kinda cheesy, but it was a really great book. I couldn't wait to turn the page and I'm sure that if you
give it a chance you'll love it!
