On his first day in his new school, no one talks to Lucius. Everyone is too intimidated by the rumors of the explosion that he caused, and the hooks he has instead of hands. This is fine with Lucius—he'd rather not talk to anyone at all.

But then there's Aurora. Aurora is dealing with pain of her own, the pain of losing her mother. Lucius' hooks don't bother her at all, but instead intrigue her. Is it possible that the two of them can look beyond the surface to what's truly important and find redemption with each other?

Crazy Beautiful is an unexpected love story that deals with far more than just those breathless moments of first love, but delves deeper into the finer aspects of choices and consequences, second chances, and forgiveness. The emotions that Baratz-Logsted evokes in Crazy Beautiful are painful and raw, but authentic and exhilarating as well. Crazy Beautiful is a concise, entrancing, and completely consuming read, punctuated by smart humor and wonderful characterizations that especially cause Aurora and Lucius stand out. In its own unique way, Crazy Beautiful is a compelling, bittersweet, and memorable read with a love story so persuasive that it will keep you coming back again and again.

Cover Comments: This cover is gorgeous! I love the black and white color scheme, and the graceful lines of the image--it creates a very romantic, but edgy look that fits the book perfectly!

Crazy Beautiful will be released on September 7th, 2009.
