The Lovereading comment:
March 2012 Book of the Month.
We suspect this may well be Sophia Bennett's break-out novel. Her previous ones have done immensely well but this novel for teenagers is blisteringly good. It's the story of two sisters whose world falls apart just as for one of them fame is there for the taking. It will make you laugh and cry by turns and it's not to be missed.
And a message from Barry Cunningham, Sophia Bennett's Publisher: I have sisters. one sadly died, the other was my idea of a catwalk queen:sixties mini skirts, Mary Quant make-up and Biba accessories. I watched them live lives similar to the girls in this story of what looks good, how people judge looks, buy and sell looks and what really matters in the end.
The Look is brilliant, funny and moving, and I'll admit I did cry out loud in the end. I think this is Sophia Bennett's best book yet; take a look, I'm sure you'll agree!
