Goodreads Synopsis:
What if you lost the thing that made you who you are?

Lexi has always been stunning. Her butter-colored hair and perfect features have helped her attract friends, a boyfriend, and the attention of a modeling scout. But everything changes the night Lexi's face goes through a windshield. Now she's not sure what's worse: the scars she'll have to live with forever, or what she saw going on between her best friend and her boyfriend right before the accident. With the help of her trombone-playing, defiantly uncool older sister and a guy at school recovering from his own recent trauma, Lexi learns she's much more than just a pretty face

My Thoughts: 
My Life In Black and White is definitely a novel that will have you imagining "what if that happened to me?". I was absolutely sucked into this book. The character's where great and the story line was amazing.

To have gone from having everything to thinking you have nothing in the blink of an eye would have any teenage girl loosing her mind. What happens when her "friends" turn out to be nothing like she thought they were. Will the people who are suppose to matter most actually stick around when it counts the most?

This is such an emotionally gripping story of one girls sense of loss, love and finding oneself. She goes through trial and tribulations and her relationships are put to the ultimate test.

I absolutely love books like this. Books that could be true and you can identify with the character's on almost every level. To sit back and take away a life lesson is what is amazing about the written word.
You can be entertained but also learn something about yourself at the same time.

My Life In Black and White is a novel that you must have on your shelves. You will become emotionally invested with Natasha's character's. You will want to be there from beginning to end!
