Beige by Cecil Castellucci

The week I was on vacation, I read Cecil Castellucci's novel, Beige.

This one was a home run with me. I could not put it down. She really drew me into Katy's world...a 15 year old who has spent her entire life with her mom and ends up spending the summer with her dad, a punk rocker who is trying to make a comeback. It's set in L.A. and there are lots of references to bands that I know so that made it fun for me as well. In fact, each chapter is the title of a different song and the band who performs it.

Even if you're not into music, you will still like this book. And if you don't like novels, check out Cecil's new graphic novel, The Plain Janes which I also just got into the Teen Zone!
