It happens every September– the list is posted all over school. Two girls are picked from each year. One is named the prettiest, one the ugliest. The girls who aren't picked are quickly forgotten. The girls who are become the centre of attention, and each reacts differently to the experience. With THE LIST, Siobhan Vivian deftly takes you into the lives of eight very different girls struggling with issues of identity, self-esteem, and the judgements of their peers. Prettiest or ugliest, once you're on the list, you'll never be the same.
