Amelia Warner will stop at nothing to get what she wants: everything.
Seventeen-year-old Amelia Warner is always on the outside. Moving from boarding school to boarding school with her brother and their father, the untenured professor, doesn't help. Amelia lives inches from the sons and daughters of the elite, forever looking in on the beautiful people. A natural-born charmer who doesn't lie so much as rework the truth to her advantage, Amelia is well-versed in the art of faking a high-society identity to get limited access to the luxe life, but she's never figured out how to truly belong. Then she meets Courtney Moore, the Upper East Side heiress who needs a friend as badly as Amelia wants to be that friend, and suddenly a world of opportunity opens up for her. Parties, shopping, her own wing in the Moore mansion—it's all hers for the taking, as long as she can keep her real life a secret, especially from the new acquaintance who's been asking way too many questions. Can Amelia stay one step ahead of the doubters to secure her place in the beautiful world?
I didn't like Beautiful World by Anastasia Holling. It was the story of a poor girl that wanted to rich and will do anything to get there. Amelia was whining every three second. She thought that deserved better, when her life wasn't horrible. She also kept on mooching off other people for things that she didn't need. The other main girl, Courtney kept on trusting Amelia, when she had no reason to. I have no clue how I made it through this book, but I really didn't like it.


  1. I'm sorry you didn't like it. :( I haven't read it and probably never will- not so much my type of book. Plus the reviews I've read don't recommend it either. If I did try reading it, it's doubtful I'd even be able to get through it. So it's amazing you were able to with disliking it so.

  2. That sounds terrible! But I was thinking about getting it for my friend for her birthday. She likes Gossip Girl and gross books like that so I think she might like this one.
