What if beauty is more than just skin deep? 
When Chelsea Martin's future stepmother helps her transform from gawky and geeky into the hottest girl at her new school, Chelsea is pretty sure it's the best thing that ever happened to her. But her hot new look has a downside. She's attracting lots of guys who all have one thing in common: they're jerks. Oh, and stealing the attention of all the guys in school doesn't exactly make her BFF material for the girls.

Finally a great guy catches her eye. But he's the only one around who doesn't give her a second glance. Can Chelsea come up with a plan to get his attention? Or will her new image ruin everything?
I could relate to Chelsea so much at first! Being told her father was remarrying someone she barely knew is a huge deal. It's not easy. However, I felt she became superficial when she got her makeover. I know she wasn't thrilled about it at first, but she still went along with it and it changed who she was. Then when it didn't work to her advantage she didn't like it anymore. Sadly, many girls are this way now. However, I did enjoy the book and recommend it as a quick, light read.

I received this book free for review from the Revell Blog Tours program. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
