Youth level.

When Deenie finds out that she has scoliosis, she’s scared. When she sees the brace for the first time, she wants to scream. But the words won’t come out. And Deenie, beautiful Deenie, who everyone says should be a model, is stuck wearing a brace from her neck to her hips. For four years—or longer. She never worried about how she looked before—how will she ever face the hard times ahead?

Hate the ending

This is a book to read if you're just looking for somrthing quick and cute. It was an enjoyable book, but I think the ending leaves you hanging too much. All in all though this was a great book.
