Description

Every person lives with his or her ideal concept of beauty. As a teenager, this ideal can be challenging: Am I pretty enough? What does it mean to be pretty? Is beauty fair? Ranging from funny to desperate, each of the stories in this collection portrays a turning point moment when individual dreams of beauty collide with reality. In Lauren Myracle's story, a Homecoming Queen deals with a truly enormous and possibly enchanted chin hair. In Ellen Wittlinger's contribution, a young model questions the career her mother has foisted on her. In Mary Ann Rodman's piece, a white American feels baffled by her beautiful Thai's classmates desire to be pale. Perceptive and unexpected, these stories challenge readers to question their own thoughts about beauty.
