One of my missions is to read more of my books that I have had on my kindle for a while. Whilst this may be an endless task, I will slowly chip away at my reading list.

You only have to turn on the TV, flick through magazines or even scroll through your social media, and you can see how obsessive some people are with their looks. Untitled Beauty is a story about Grace or more commonly known as Eleven, a young adult who has lived in a world that was controlled by their looks. The higher your score the better life you had.

Grace was rare in the middle of the look gauge, she was what they call a potential. She could get prettier if she had the right buyer.

As you follow Grace, you think her life could not get worse but as she lives with her new family, she is treated more like a pet and her only friend, Reese, a trainer seems to have alternative motives. But as more is known Reese, you can understand why is paying so much attention to Grace. The treatment of her “family” was barbaric and I did wonder whether she would have been better off living back in isolation.

Luckily for Grace, she is very strong-willed and even when she is humiliated or battered and bruised, she gritted her teeth and survived.   

The story is a fast-paced read as there was always something happening. The last third of the book was non stop and whilst it did not end on a cliff-hanger, it did leave me wanting to carry on with the series and as it is on kindle unlimited, I am looking forward to carrying on with Grace’s adventure. This is a dystopian book with a difference and it was a pleasant change to read a story which did not involve the ending of the world. This story is perfect for teenager or adults who are looking for a story that will make you think about how we view society
