Dead Beautiful - Yvonne Woon

This book was wonderfully written, with rich characters and interesting story line.
Renee thought everything in her life was ordinary, which suited her just fine. Then on her sixteenth birthday she finds her parents, dead, of apparent heart attacks. Their deaths open up a series of questions, with no easy answers. To make matters worse, her distant grandfather, is her legal guardian and has decided that she should attend an elite privet school 3,000 miles away.

When she gets there, she realizes that its not just the classes that are different, some of the students are as well. Finally questions are answers, but she has a hard time coming to terms with them.

I enjoyed this book right up to the last page. The last page, I turned and damn near threw it across the floor. Not because there will be a sequel, but I just wasn't happy with the ending. Its rare that I am, but this time I was really unhappy. So be warned.

All in all I thought this was a good book. I would look for more by her. (hopefully she isn't as cruel in her others books).
