FIVE STARS
"Scarred is an incredible story by Elizabeth Montgomery, which literally took my breath away...I have never found a book to be such a compelling read, and I am sure I will read Scarred many more times in my down time. Elizabeth Montgomery has a unique style of writing, enabling the reader to "become" Avery while reading Scarred." -Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite

If you have never been bullied, you are probably the one doing the bullying or someone standing by hoping no one will notice you. The effect bullying has on the recipient’s psyche can be devastating. This type of verbal and sometimes physical abuse has been around for ages. Today bullying has moved from school hallways and the streets to the Internet where it follows a person day and night.

Montgomery’s story is told in the first person by our young heroin, Avery. She is disfigured, but years of surgery have minimized the disfigurement. Eleven years she has been the target of a vicious bully and Avery hates the thought of going to school. Who could blame her? Avery’s best friend is Dylan, he too is bullied, and it is an attack on him that moves Avery to take action. She is aided in her quest for justice by a class mate that she isn’t sure she can trust.

“Scarred” delves into the mental anguish of those on the receiving end of bullying. Uniquely done is the tormented life and damaged psyche of the bully.

This book was gifted to me for an honest review. I have to give “Scarred” a solid four star rating and recommend it highly as a book that should be on every middle school and older readers list of must read books. Parents and teachers could also benefit from a look into the mental anguish of these youngsters. Well done Elizabeth.

Avery feels like an outsider. Her whole life has consisted of her building up walls to protect herself from the bullying she receives due to something she can't help. She was born with a cleft lip and though the surgeries have fixed it and the scars are minimal, teenagers will be teenagers. Avery must learn to take risks and not let anyone pull her down so that she doesn't spend her life missing out on the good things coming her way.

Scarred was a quick read that shows what teenagers think and feel when they encounter bullying. It reminds us that bullying is inevitable and we each have to find out own way to deal with it. Just as being bullied has multiple facets, Scarred shows us that bullies may have something going on in their lives that has encouraged their behavior. It's important to stay strong and take the higher road, especially when karma comes knocking because as the saying goes: What goes around, comes around.

Scarred is a story of hope. Regardless of the circumstance, there is always hope.

Avery has been bullied most of her life. She doesn't trust anyone. Since Harper Clarke made it her mission to destroy Avery, life was mostly miserable. She doesn't trust anyone. When Harper's ex-boyfriend, Blake, begins talking to her, she is positive there's a catch. Could a member of the popular crowd possibly want to be her friend? Will Harper find a way to mess this up too?

Everyone has scars, some are just not seen. I love this story as it tells the story of a girl with visible scars and the trials she had to go through. She thought she was ugly because of the scars on her face, but the one boy that she always had a crush on saw beyond them to the beautiful person she was inside. Never take things on face value, what is inside is what counts the most.

I've read many books that deal with the subject of bullying. Most have involved kids or teenagers, and not surprisingly, and almost all have had a common theme - namely, that the main character is suffering terrible torment at the hands of someone bigger or prettier or more popular or wealthier (or all of the above), for no other reason than that they are "different."

Avery was born with a cleft palate, and though she's reconstructive surgeries to fix it, the evidence of her former condition still remain. And for this reason, she's been the target of horribly bullying from Harper Clarke ever since elementary school. The only friend Avery has is Dylan, who is tormented just as badly for being gay.

So when the handsome Blake (Harper's ex-BF) steps forward offering to be Avery's white knight and put an end to Harper's reign of terror, she is at first skeptical. Who wouldn't be?

This was a very quick read, but with a powerful message, that being: most bullies become bullies for reasons they prefer not to talk about, to cover their own pain or inner demons. I'm never sure just how stories about bullying are going to end - happily or tragically - but I was pleasantly surprised by how this ended. Avery is a shining example of what it takes to deal with bullying once and for all.

I thought this was a great story, I think it's nice to have booms out there that are about bullying and how people deal with the struggles of it and eventually overcome it. I loved the characters in this book. You really start to feel for them and feel the impact of their story. I can't wait to read more about them and wish this book would have been longer.
