A funny girl.
The girl with the pretty FACE.
Hayley wishes she could love living in Santa Monica, blocks from the beach, where every day—and everybody—is beautiful and sunny. But she just doesn't fit in with all the blond, superskinny Southern California girls who have their plastic surgeons on speed dial. Hayley is smart and witty and has such a pretty . . . face. Translation: Don't even think about putting on a bikini, much less dating superhot Drew ...more
That is what she has always been.
She is witty, funny and she has a great sense of humor but someway the boys just don't see her as a potential girlfriend canditate.
They just see her as a friend.
And Hayley is more than sick of that.
Hayley is not like "ordinary" girls in Santa Monica, California. She does not fit to the scene with the all blond, super skinny California girls. She is a little fat, not much, but just the way that putting a bikini on and going to the ...more
Hayley is 16. Everyone has always told her that she is funny and a great friend, you know, the girl with the pretty face. There's just one problem, Hayley is overweight and very unhappy about it. Her mother is a member of Waist Watchers, a local weight loss group, and is very adamant about Hayley losing at least 30 pounds. When the opportunity to travel to Italy for an entire summer ari ...more
In Pretty Face, Hayley is overweight and the boys she likes just want to be friends. Yes, she's got a pretty face, but if they could just look past her weight, they'd see she has a lovely personality too. But they don't. And neither does her mother. Having conquered a weight problem of her own, Hayley's mother is deter ...more

Unlike any other characters in books, she is flawed, yet perfect. In other books, those characters are hot, cute, pretty, handsome, but being Hayley, she's fat, and that is a huge cause for her low self-esteem. It's not that she is emo or something like that, it's just that, she can't ...more
The novel centers around the main character Hayley, who lives in Santa Monica and can’t stand it. Being fat makes her an outcast in California, in school, at the beach — even in her own home. Her mom urges her to fight the fat, but Hayley can’t seem to commit and doesn’t really know if she wants to.
Failing at fighting the bulge and at boys, Hayley pretty much gives up until her parents decide to send her to Italy. While there, Hayley tries t ...more
