Despite her mother's impassioned insistence to the contrary, Evie Selby had never thought of herself as beautiful.
A fierce, feisty, and “wonderfully entertaining” (Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies) debut with a magical twist about three ordinary, regular girls who suddenly have their fantasies come true…or do they?
Best friends Evie, Krista, and Willow are just trying to make it through their mid-twenties in New York. They’re regular girls, with average looks and typical quarter-life crises: making it up the corporate ladder, making sense of online dating, and making rent.
Until they come across Pretty, a magic tincture that makes them, well...gorgeous. Like, supermodel gorgeous. And it’s certainly not their fault if the sudden gift of beauty causes unexpected doors to open for them.
But there’s a dark side to Pretty, too, and as the gloss fades for these modern-day Cinderellas, there’s just one question left:
What would you sacrifice to be Pretty?
Nothing like a pretty pink cover and luscious red lipstick to lure in chick-lit lovers ;-)
This is a modern day fairy tale kind of story with current dating scene scenarios and single living lifestyle in a big city. Throw in some magical craziness and you get a cute and fun read!
Issues explored include beauty, feminism, love (not just the hetero kind) and self-esteem.
