I loved this book. I love Colie's transformation and that it goes so much deeper than just dying her hair and learning to use makeup. I wish that I had had an Isabelle in high school to tell me all these truths about self-confidence and self-worth. Dessen is a wonderful writer, and her characters feel real and complex. I feel like I will be suggesting this book to every teen girl so that they can read about self-confidence from a source other than Seventeen.

I am glad that they changed the cover, though. The original cover (blue with a pair of black sunglasses towards the bottom) leaves a lot to be desired.
