    Honestly, this story started off with basically describing my relationship with my mother It is just so relatable to many young ladies out there in our generation, that my heart hit home the instant the mother and daughter relationship started off. Then, came the reality of the main character, Hayley to hit home as well about her love life. At first, because of the synopsis, I was thinking she would actually stay and be happily with the guy named Drew who she has had a crush on for a while now. [...]

    Originally posted at One More PageI used to be fat. I won't sugarcoat it: I was fat. I wasn't obese, but I was about 40 lbs overweight. If you don't believe me, see for yourself.I tried not to mind my being overweight, and try to follow those "love yourself" mantras to make me feel good about myself. No one exactly called me fat to my face, but people joked about it at times, and I often laughed it off. But I knew for myself that I wasn't thin, and I hated shopping for clothes because I knew I w [...]

    This book was wonderful I laughed, wanted to slap the hell out of the mother, and cried all within the couple of hours that I read this book.This book was like reading a story of my life just change Claifornia to Florida, a BFF with brown hair to blonde hair, and a Summer in Italy to a summer soccer camp and we're like twinslol but really, Pretty Face is the story of a young girl whom is having a hard time dealing with the situations of being a 16 yr old girl. She cant get any help from her moth [...]

    "-Si continuas así-dice por la ranura de la puerta- vas a pesar tanto como dos personas.-Siempre quise una hermana-le contesto."Lo que me gustó;-La protagonista (en parte). Hayley está gorda y lo acepta, tiene una cara bonita y lo acepta. No es la típica adolescente con falsa modestia, Hayley sabe quién es y lo que quiere ser. Y va creciendo a lo largo del libro de forma hermosa. -La idea del libro (aunque sea algo súper cliché y usado) y la crítica a la sociedad. Amarse a uno mismo, ace [...]

    Este libro siempre me dejará con una sonrisa en los labios y un suspiro de satisfacción.~This book will always leave me with a smile on my lips and a sigh of satisfaction.

    That's what I am.A funny girl.A friend.Nobody's girlfriend.The girl with the pretty FACE.Hayley wishes she could love living in Santa Monica, blocks from the beach, where every day—and everybody—is beautiful and sunny. But she just doesn't fit in with all the blond, superskinny Southern California girls who have their plastic surgeons on speed dial. Hayley is smart and witty and has such a pretty . . . face. Translation: Don't even think about putting on a bikini, much less dating superhot D [...]

    Este libro me engancho. Lo empece ayer y ayer lo termine, por ahí de las 12:30 am. Es una lectura muy ligera y bonita, la verdad me encanto!Creo que este libro tiene muchos mensajes, aparte de que la autora describe Italia de una forma que sientes que estas ahí con Hayley, subiendo aquellas calles empinadas, viendo y viviendo todo lo que ella hace, aparte de que siempre he querido visitar Asís! . Me gusto el personaje de Hayley y como va subiendo su estima personal, al grado de que al final e [...]

    While I enjoyed Pretty Face, I didn't like the people all that much. Yes, of course I loved Hayley and Jackie and the Italians, but why is Hayley's dad such a do-nothing? And Hayley's mom is toxic! She refuses to see how she is damaging her daughter. And frankly, I really disliked that Hayley's hard-won self confidence is so intertwined with a boy's attention. What's going to happen back in Santa Monica where she is still curvy and still living with her obsessed mom?

    Plot Sketch: Hayley is thirty pounds overweight. Her mom is a gung-ho member of Waist Watchers and rides Hayley constantly about going to the Doctor about her weight. She even buys her a talking scale. People always tell her what a pretty face she has, but never tell her she's pretty. Hayley has been crushing on Drew Wyler for a while, but when the opportunity to go to Italy for the summer arises, she snaps it up. The only bad thing is leaving Jackie, her best friend, behind. While in Italy, she [...]

    Hayley- A girl with a pretty face.That is what she has always been.She is witty, funny and she has a great sense of humor but someway the boys just don't see her as a potential girlfriend canditate.They just see her as a friend.And Hayley is more than sick of that.Hayley is not like "ordinary" girls in Santa Monica, California. She does not fit to the scene with the all blond, super skinny California girls. She is a little fat, not much, but just the way that putting a bikini on and going to the [...]

    Una lectura ligera, tierna, bonita y cursi.Tiene algunas cosas que me molestaban, claro, entre ellas la historia de amor que realmente no me llegó al corazón porque es insta-love (generalmente el insta-love no me molesta) y nunca se vuelve profundo o por lo menos no me lo creí. Además la presión que pone la madre de Hayley es detestable, y que Hayley hablara mal de las personas que no eran gordas, quiero decir, claro se trata de que ella no se siente bien con su cuerpo por la presión de co [...]

    A quick YA read for a rainy Sunday morning. Hayley lives in Southern California - and does not fit the ideal of a blonde beach babe. Both she and her mother struggle with weight issues and after her crush asks her to see if her best friend will go out with him, Hayley stuffs her emotions by stuffing a large pepperoni pizza in her mouth. The next day is is forced to attend weight watchers type session with her mother, which she runs out of. Upon returning home her parents have decided to send her [...]

    I enjoyed Mary Hogan's book The Serious Kiss, but I wasn't wild about it. I enjoyed Pretty Face much more, even though it deals with some of the same issues (specifically: weight).In Pretty Face, Hayley is overweight and the boys she likes just want to be friends. Yes, she's got a pretty face, but if they could just look past her weight, they'd see she has a lovely personality too. But they don't. And neither does her mother. Having conquered a weight problem of her own, Hayley's mother is deter [...]

    For my quarter one reading assignment I decided to read a book I wouldn’t normally read in my spare time. I chose the book, Pretty Face, by Mary Hogan. The description of this book described a young girl with weight issues who is sent to Italy for the summer alone. The description seemed boring and unrealistic to me, since she was only sixteen or seventeen but I decided to read it anyways. Hayley, the main character, has body image issues and is not comfortable in her own skin, the description [...]

    Well, pretty likable protagonist here. Hayley's overweight and would like to lose weight, but it's not her top priority, and anyway, regardless of whether or not she loses weight, she'd like to keep a handle on who she is. When her parents offer to send her to Italy to stay with a family friend for the summer (pretty much the entire reason I read this), she jumps at the chance to get away from pressure (mostly her mother's pressure) to conform.SoI liked that Hayley's transformation was more abou [...]

    El comienzo lo odie, aunque si soy sincera odie mas el libro que amarlo. Ya que siento que dejo mucha cosa suelta como porque no mejoro la relacion con su padre cuando regreso a California; a final si acepto su cuerpo tal como es, pero aun para mi hubo mucha cosa que tuvo que ampliarse y mejorar. Pero sin duda alguna que disfrute los ultimos capitulos, mejor dicho lo mejor del libro fue Italia

    First of all, this book is about a teenage girl named Hayley who has a problem with eating. She is overweight, and she goes on eating binges when she is stressed or upset. One major problem is that she has a crush on a guy who sees her as just a friend. What's more, he wants to ask out Hayley's best friend.Hayley's mother, who is extremely concerned with Hayley's weight, decides to send her to Italy for the summer to stay with a friend of the family. Hayley is shocked, but happy. Who wouldn't wa [...]

    I am torn on this book. The overall idea that everyone is beautiful in their own way and we have to, at some point in life, come to an understanding with ourselves that we are who we are and there is nothing wrong with that is a wonderful thought. It is an idea that every girl should learn and fast! But, for Hayley's self esteem to be so tired to boys liking her is so not what I would ever teach my child. Sending her to Italy was the best thing that her parents could have done for her and I wish [...]

    This book was written to be a "coming to terms with your appearance and learning to love yourself as you are" book, and that element is definitely there. Hayley has the misfortune to be a curvy girl in the "land of the L.A. lollipops," and her vegetarian fitness-crazed mother is constantly on her back to lose weight. But for me, this book is a travel fantasy. Hayley also has the great good fortune to have a family friend with a rustic home in Umbria, and an invitation to spend her summer in Ital [...]

    This book was very good in my opinion. It's about how you shouldn't put yourself down because of how you look on the outside. Hayley learns that while also having the experience of a life time. Hayley was the just the funny girl with a "pretty face" and wanted to be more for her "lover" Drew, but when she finds out that he likes her best friend she's heartbroken. She immediately goes to comfort herself by getting a large pizza and a liter of soda. Her mother sees how she's gaining more weight th [...]

    Want to see more bookish things from me? Check out my YouTube channel: youtube/channel/UCferHayley is 16. Everyone has always told her that she is funny and a great friend, you know, the girl with the pretty face. There's just one problem, Hayley is overweight and very unhappy about it. Her mother is a member of Waist Watchers, a local weight loss group, and is very adamant about Hayley losing at least 30 pounds. When the opportunity to travel to Italy for an entire summer arises, Hayley gobbles [...]

    Hayleyn elämä ei ole helppoa. Jonkin verran ylipainoisena hän kokee olevansa pelkästään tyttö, jota pojat voivat parhaimmillaankin ajatella vain ja ainoastaan ihan kivana kaverina, mutta eivät koskaan tyttöystävänä. Lisäpaineita elämään tuovat kasvisruoan ja liikunnan nimiin vannova äiti sekä koulukaverit, joiden taskusta löytyy todennäköisemmin "kanta-asiakaskortti kuntosalille kuin kirjastoon". Kesämatka Italiaan ja tutustuminen paikallisiin elämäntapoihin muuttaa kuite [...]

    Hayley's self esteem plummets even further when the guy she's been crushing on asks her if she thinks her best friend would date him. She leaves the beach, a place that she hates due to all the skinny girls in bikinis, and eats an entire large pepperoni pizza without tasting it. When she arrives back home, her mother can sense there's something wrong, but she's more concerned about her daughter's weight than her emotional health. Then her mother delivers the news: she's sending Hayley to Italy f [...]

    Pretty Face by Mary Hogan is about a fat girl with a pretty face named Hayley. She hates her body and is jealous of her best friend Jackie because she is skinny and everybody likes her. When Hayley's crush likes Jackie, she was devastated. Hayley's mom suggests Hayley to go to Rome to visit her mom's side of the family. Hayley quickly agreed to it because she wants a new beginning in life and plans to lose weight. When she was in Italy she experience life and enjoy every moment of it. She meet a [...]

    Easy read about a girl who is known for her pretty face, and her less than model thin body. Hayley, the main character, is constantly bombarded by her mother telling her to lose weight, so it is no surprise that she is obsessed with her weight too. The solution: go to Italy. After walking up hills in Assisi and falling in love, Hayley is transformed. The one thing I did love about this book is that Hayley finally changes her perspective (see quote below). What I did not like is the idea that all [...]

    Insecurities eats us up. We've wasted so much time, dwelling on our own insecurities, where else we should learn to embrace it, instead of living in constant self-denial and loath. That's what Pretty Face taught me.Unlike any other characters in books, she is flawed, yet perfect. In other books, those characters are hot, cute, pretty, handsome, but being Hayley, she's fat, and that is a huge cause for her low self-esteem. It's not that she is emo or something like that, it's just that, she can't [...]

    This book is about a girl name Hayley, who at first think pretty refers to body size. She lives in California, a state with an influential media that defines perfection and beauty. Furthermore, her mother has a thin body that checks and controls Hayley's diet. Under all these pressure, Hayley felt different and self-conscious. Hayley uses her humor to attract a charming boy from school however their relationship ends in a disaster. Her mother decided to let Hayley leave to Italy and stay over at [...]

    Mary Hogan gives us a refreshing read in “Pretty Face.”The novel centers around the main character Hayley, who lives in Santa Monica and can’t stand it. Being fat makes her an outcast in California, in school, at the beach — even in her own home. Her mom urges her to fight the fat, but Hayley can’t seem to commit and doesn’t really know if she wants to.Failing at fighting the bulge and at boys, Hayley pretty much gives up until her parents decide to send her to Italy. While there, Ha [...]

    Regardless of how she accepted the fact that she doesn't "fit in" with the "normal" girls in South Carolina, Hayley, our protagonist still shows the disappointment that she is only a girl with a "pretty face". The term "pretty face" is like taboo for Hayley because she knows there isn't any other way you can compliment her. Besides that fact, her mother also consistently complains about her weight. Hayley knows for the truth that she isn't especially pretty or skinny, but the pressure that was p [...]
