Video Veneris

It's about time I got back to posting book (sometimes movie) trailers on Fridays. This week's trailer is for Liz Coley's Pretty Girl-13

While I haven't had the chance to read Pretty Girl-13 yet, I like the way the disjointed images in the trailer parallel Angie's fractured, memory. This is a book I'm looking forward to!

If want a more 'wordy' what it's about, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

Reminiscent of the Elizabeth Smart case, Pretty Girl-13 is a disturbing and powerful psychological mystery about a girl who must piece together the story of her kidnapping and captivity.

Angie Chapman was thirteen years old when she ventured into the woods alone on a Girl Scouts camping trip. Now she's returned home…only to find that it's three years later and she's sixteen-or at least that's what everyone tells her.

What happened to the past three years of her life?

Angie doesn't know.

But there are people who do—people who could tell Angie every detail of her forgotten time, if only they weren't locked inside her mind. With a tremendous amount of courage, Angie embarks on a journey to discover the fragments of her personality, otherwise known as her "alters." As she unearths more and more about her past, she discovers a terrifying secret and must decide: When you remember things you wish you could forget, do you destroy the parts of yourself that are responsible?

Liz Coley's alarming and fascinating psychological mystery is a disturbing-and ultimately empowering-page-turner about accepting our whole selves, and the healing power of courage, hope, and love.

Published by Harper Teen, it's out March 19th

Enjoy the weekend!!
