[originally written Aug. 23, 2007]

The best book I've ever seen for teenage girls concerning appearance. I bought it for my 13-year-old sister after devouring it in the bookstore. It talks about how perception of beauty changes throughout time, body parts and how everyone is different, eating disorders, and pretty much everything that can affect looks.

Really, it's great for girls of all ages, but amazing for girls in their early teens figuring out how their bodies are changing. Wouldn't recommend
If your like me, in love with beauty/style, but also very much a feminist, this is the book for you. I love how it includes the historical side to fashion, and different kinds of style(bombshell, diva, goth, hippie),but in a cool, not cliche, way. is also amazing and I highly recommend it! 4.5 stars.
This is a great book to help with writing. I primarly picked up this book because I loved the previous book by them "Gurl" was a blunt and much needed approach for a teenager learning about their sexuality, prospects, money, and life in general.
