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 was afraid this book was going to become a DNF for me. I always feel guilty when that happens on books I request for review, because I try not to request books unless I think I will like them. However, this book started out slowly and it looked as if Chelsea was going to become one of those vain girls who focus only on her outward appearance, and this was barely 20 pages in! Luckily, the plot picked up quickly and I flew through this book with ease. The characters are all lovable, even some of the sleazy guys who redeemed themselves. This book opens your eyes on what high school girls focus on to attract the guys!

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