BOOK REVIEW: Magic Hands

Title: Magic Hands
Author: Jennifer Laurens


Cort, the high school senior jock seems to have it all -- except a summer job. When he lands one doing women's nails, his eyes are opened to the catty, back-stabbing world of females. Girls he thought he knew and trusted turn out to shock and use him. He gets to know Rachel, an elusive girl the others gossip about, a girl with secrets. From her he learns there is more to life than weekend partying and social status, and one of the secrets she shares with him will change his life forever.


What? Really? It just finished like that? But...? I wanted to read more, about the dance and after... I just turned the page and... nothing. I was kind of disappointed.
The book though wasn't bad. It was kind of original, a guy doing nails. Not that I think he'd be the only guy in the world. There are many men who are make-up artists, hair-stylers etc. I guess there are some even doing nails. But still, it was obviously surprising for a teenage boy to like it.
Cort was a really nice guy, though at times I thought he was kind of weak. What with the way he let her employer treat him or even how he reacted around Bree's body even though he didn't like her as a person.
Rachel was okay, but I didn't partiularly like her. She was too aloof with Cort and didn't give him much chance to show her his interest and that he was different from the other jocks. But he still did. And she couldn't help but fall for his charmes. He was just too cute and hot.

***3 stars***
