What if you could be stunningly beautiful? Would you make the wish regardless of the costs? Molly did not realize that her melancholy wish for beauty at the town fair would be granted by the kind, but rather odd sketch artist drawing her portrait. After waking up the next day dreamily beautiful, Molly’s life changes in many ways. Everyone wants to be her friend, her crush takes an interest in her, and she is voted into the homecoming court. Molly quickly realizes that with her beauty, comes power. Molly is able to dictate fashion, ditch class, and determine her classmates’ popularity. Over the course of a week, Molly’s looks are not the only part of her that changes. Can she recover her true goodness and looks?
Lisa Daily’s first novel is a definite success. Readers will cheer for Molly as she succeeds and worry about her when she begins to slip. Molly is a funny narrator with a great sense of humor. Reading from her perspective was never boring. This novel is perfect for teen girls, but adult readers would have fun reading as well. Most women and girls have been in situations like those described in the book and can relate to Molly as a friend and empathize with her. I give Beauty five out of five stars.
