“Every girl’s dream and every girl’s nightmare rolled into one. You won’t be able to put it down.” –Aimee L. Salter, author of Love Out Loud and Every Ugly Word

“Relatable if you’re in your teens and enjoyable if you’re looking back on that time, Wasted Pretty is an important and satisfying must-read novel for all ages.” –Lindsay Jill Roth, author of What Pretty Girls Are Made Of

“Jamie Beth Cohen drew me in completely with this heartfelt and deeply honest coming-of-age story steeped in the world of rock ‘n’ roll and radio and shot through with the ache of first love.” –Kit Frick, author of See All the Stars

“I lost a weekend to this book in the best possible way. I just could not put it down. Every time I thought I knew where it was headed, I was delighted to discover I was wrong.” –Gemma Baker, Co-creator and Executive Producer of the television show MOM

Wasted Pretty, a chillingly real roller coaster of a read, left me breathless. Jamie Beth Cohen didn’t waste a word in this beautiful and complicated story about the challenges of being a teenage girl filled with equal parts suspense, love, and music. The story is so well-told that I felt each of Alice’s hopes and heartbreaks down to the bone.” –Caren Lissner, author of Carrie Pilby
