North of Beautiful by Justina Chen

Terra Cooper has a verbally abusive father, a boyfriend she can’t talk to, and an envious body.  Each one of these lead back to what she believes is terrible, a port wine stain.  Until she meets Jacob, a boy who changes the way she sees herself.  North of beautiful started off kind of slow, boring.  it picked up pretty quickly though and I soon found it hard to put the book down.
