Thirteen-year-old Olivia Hughes has always considered herself a lucky girl. She knows what she wants to do with her life—be an actress. And she’s already on her way. She just landed a national ad campaign that should get her noticed. But then her luck runs out. A little pimple turns into a full-blown case of acne, with serious side effects for her career, her relationships, and her self-esteem. Now all she wants to do is hide, but she can’t. She goes from being the girl at school who everyone wants to be . . . to Zitface, a girl who is teased, dumped, and even fired. What do you do when you’ve lost control of everything in your life? Olivia has to find out the hard way. And maybe, what she finds isn’t so bad after all. Download and start listening now!

    " Olivia is a commercial actress who has dreams of becoming a real actor. Enter problem zits during her 8th grade year, and these are not the run of the mill zits. Even with help from a doctor, these zits are intense. Will Olivia be able to keep starring in commercials, date the most popular guy in school, and keep her friends, with her face (and back) breaking out? "

    " I chose the book Zitface because I thought that I would really relate to it. Zitface is about a girl named Olivia who thought that nothing could ruin her life especially when she is an actress. She then starts facing problems when she forms acne on her face. I like the quote " A lot of things had happened in my life this spring and most of it , I realized was good. I didn't want to hit the reset button. I wanted to keep moving forward. " because it helps me forget about the past and just move on. I enjoyed Olivia's first person point of view. I thought that the author's writing style was okay. I would definitely recommend this book to all teenage girls. "

    " Not well written, incredibly shallow characters, and reads like a dermatological brochure. ICK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Childress | 12/30/2013

    " I really liked how this book showed the shallowness of the media and our society. Also like the fact that the main character isn't snobby despite the fact that she's been in commercials. A good, wholesome book. "

    " I loved this book. It's about a girl who is an actress but she's only in the 8th grade. She just got a new boyfriends and landed a nationwide campaign for a commercial. But then a small zit turns into a full case of acne. It's a really good book. I give it 5 stars! "

    " This is a very good book about a 13-year-old girl who has done modeling for TV commercials and then develops typical teenage acne. She is teased at school, loses a guy she thought liked her, loses her modeling contract, but overall finds her true self and friends how really care about her. "
