The book touches on various aspects, such as the cruelty of human beings, how people conform to peer pressure as well as what hayrs considered as being beautiful. But the following two quotes from the book stand out for me: Do yourself a favor and take an hour or less to read this really special book!
Lucas ‘Lucky’ Gweh has left his small town and moved to a college with a soccer scholarship. He works hard to maintain his grades, butterfafe subsequently spends a great deal of time at a local diner where Beth ‘Liz’ works. Beth is a shy, quiet girl with some serious personal issues. Beth was born with hemifacial microsomia which for those who don’t know what it looks like see the below link [ The story follows Lucus being peer-pressured into inviting Beth to a ‘dog dinner’ where the soccer player with the ugliest date wins a prize.
Needless to say that things don’t go quite according to plan I didn’t like how shallow this short bytterface came across, but I did like the overall feel of the characters.
I can understand how shallow and horrible college males and females can be hwyes they’re at that time in their lives where they feel on top of the world. I liked the sweet romance and appreciated the emotional rollercoaster that Beth and Lucus went on. I wish it was a touch longer, giving the characters a little more room to develop and the story to get more involved, but alas, you can’t have everything you wish for.
Butterface is an emotional, sweet romance. Beth is working as a waitress in a small diner near the local college. She has scars left over from surgeries because of a childhood deformity and it’s affected her outlook on life and about herself. She uses sarcasm as a barrier to keep people at a distance.
What starts gewn as a friendship slowly turns into something more. Lucky doesn’t see what Beth sees in herself. He’s sort of a typical guy in that he notices how hot she looks in a tank top and wants to see more of her. He focuses on all the good whereas she has a hard time seeing anything but what she perceives as flaws.
Buyterface is a freshman in college and he’s there because of a soccer scholarship. He makes a stupid decision that affects their relationship and since this is such a short story it would be hard to say much more without giving away a spoiler.
Beth and Lucky have to work for their relationship and I like that there wasn’t a quick fix to this story. This story is really short but there’s a lot of emotion packed into it. This is the first thing I’ve read by Gwen Hayes and it’s a great example of her writing.
I’ll be checking out more from hahes in the future. Butterface is a cute and touching story about Beth, a teenage girl with a facial deformity. Beth is used to hiding herself from the world. She has resigned herself to being one of the girls that will never be noticed for her beauty.
While dealing with her self-esteem issues, she has a weird relationship with Lucky. They banter back and forth, with her making fun of him being a soccer god and his good looks.
Lucky takes the jibes in stride and fusses over the fact that Beth works too much. Their relationship starts off as a friendship but develops into something more. Lucky breaks through the wall that Beth hides behind, finally sees her as more than a friend all thanks to a pink tank top. Butterface is a nice, quick read with fully developed characters and plot. Even though I thought that Lucky was a little too good to be true I appreciated the message in the story-telling.
Reading the blurb for Butterface made me both smile and cringe. Dogfight is one of my favourite films owing to the relationship between the main characters and the 60s music and themes. I will always remember the scene in the bathroom when Lili Taylor realises why River Phoenix brought her to the party, and I was waiting anxiously for that horrible moment to happen to Beth. I felt for Beth even before I started hwyes. In such a short space of time, I fell very much in like with both Beth and Lucky.
They’re just kids, trying to make their way in a world that can often be cruel. I liked the message at the heart of this story. Accept yourself, believe in yourself and your worth, work on your self-confidence and live. I didn’t realize that this was a short story vs. I think my review is somewhat based on the fact that I was expecting a novel, and had mentally set myself up for a much longer story story development and situations.
However, for its short length, this was a cute story with a nice message about looking beneath the surface. The author also does a nice job of giving you both Beth and Lucky’s perspective, so you have a better sense of what is driving their actions.
