Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

This book had me hooked right from the first sentence.

All cheesy jokes aside, I devoured this book in one sitting. Could not stop reading, had to keep turning the page. CRAZY BEAUTIFUL is an all-too-familiar lesson in cliques and high school cruelty, but it is one everyone must learn. Jealousy among girl "friends". Rumor spreading that is turned on you. Sticking up for yourself and others against a bully. The one catch? Lucius does it all with hooks for hands. It was fascinating to read (and then think) about life without hands. How normal, every-day things are completely taken for granted until you find yourself unable to perform them anymore. Plus, the super sweet relationship between Lucius and Aurora will make you say "awwwwwww".

With alternating chapters between Lucius and Aurora's point-of-view, the plot is able to go deeper and show you the thoughts and emotions from both important characters. Lauren Baratz-Logsted will have you believing in the power of love at first sight.
