The girls who are become the center 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 judgments of their peers.

Horn Book Review

Every September, a mysterious list of the four "ugliest" and four "prettiest" girls appears at Mount Washington High. Alternating chapters feature the eight girls, detailing the complex and painful consequences of this public judgment. Although the issues of popularity, anorexia, and mean girls are familiar, the diversity of perspectives and experiences create an unexpectedly raw portrait of contemporary teen girls.
