Where Beauty Lies is a decent book with a captivating plot. The story kept me entertained until the end. However, the beginning of the book was dragged out and uninteresting. I felt as if many of the details were unnecessary to the context of the story. Towards the end, there are many twists in the plot which adds suspense and interest. It is also important to point out this book is very unrealistic. However, I would recommend this novel to young teenagers who enjoy being taken to a dream world.
