Publisher's Description

When Chelsea Martin's future stepmother helps her transform from gawky and geeky into the hottest girl at her new school, Chelsea is pretty sure it's the best thing that ever happened to her. But her hot new look has a downside. She's attracting lots of guys who all have one thing in common: they're jerks. And stealing the attention of all the guys in school doesn't endear her to the girls either.

Chelsea finally finds a true friend in Janelle Parker, and a non-jerk, Nicholas, catches her eye. Janelle keeps telling her to be herself, but Nicholas is the only guy around who doesn't give her a second look. Can Chelsea and Janelle come up with a plan to get his attention? Or will Chelsea's new image ruin everything?

Teen favorite and bestselling author Melody Carlson helps girls uncover the real source of beauty in this true-to-life story of young love, friendship, and being yourself.

    Very powerful read for teen girls! I really enjoyed this read, especially the ending with the social experiment and the results! I think girls really struggle with judging other girls by their external appearances! One thing I was bummed about considering this read was that Chelsea accepts Jesus into her heart, but you don't really hear her mention much about it again and how she is growing! I wish Carlson would have went a little further in her new walk of faith! Overall, great read!

    This story captured my attention from page one. Not only does Melody do a fabulous job of nailing down the way a teenager thinks and reacts to their circumstances and peers, the "lesson" in this book is something that is, sadly, so overlooked today. A thoroughly enjoyable read. I look forward to passing it along to my teenage nieces for their enjoyment.

    Chelsea Martin's life has been less than spectacular. She doesn't like the way she looks and doesn't have any friends. On top of that, her dad is marrying his girlfriend AND moving the family halfway across the country! When Chelsea's stepmom-to-be treats her to a makeover and new wardrobe, Chelsea thinks that starting a new school with a new look might be a great opportunity for her. For the first time in her life, she can attract boys and make lots of friends. Things start of great at her new house... she becomes friends with her neighbor, who takes her to a youth group where plenty of boys find an interest in Chelsea.

    Although everything appears to be going great as the school year rolls into action, Chelsea can't help but notice that, although she's constantly surrounded by boys, the one boy she actually wants to meet seems to be going out of his way to avoid her. In fact, all the guys who do go after her are complete jerks! And she's not doing a very good job at making or keeping female friends, either. Did her makeover on the outside change who she became on the inside? Throughout this book, you'll discover with Chelsea what outward appearances really mean and who God has created us to be.

    This is a great book for any girl- preteen, teen, Christian, or non-Christian. It's a fun read, understandable, and well-told. I'm excited to read the next books in the series!

    Review by Jill Williamson
    Chelsea’s dad drops two bombs on the same night.
    1. He has a new job and they’re moving! 2. He’s getting married!

    Woah.

    At first, Chelsea is overwhelmed in a negative way. Can’t say that I blame her! But her future stepmom starts to grow on her when she gives Chelsea a live-changing makeover. When Chelsea starts school, it’s like she’s a completely different person—at least that’s how people are treating her. She’s attracting all the wrong guys, and the one she really likes won’t even talk to her. What’s the deal?

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! Seriously. At first I thought it was just your regular girl-gets-makeover-and-her-life-becomes-amazing book. I was thrilled to be so wrong! Melody Carlson wrote a great, thought-provoking story about the way we tend to stereotype people based on how they look. This is a wonderful story for all ages, but I highly recommend it for all teen girls. It will really make them think.

    *I received this book free for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Great Read for Teen Girls

    When this book arrived at our house, my daughter scooped it up immediately. A day later she returned with it and plea for the next book. Melody Carlson is quickly becoming one of her favorite authors.

    Here's more from my daughter:

    What if beauty is more than just skin deep?

    Chelsea Martin is a teenager who blends in and is tired of it. She wants to be noticed, but isn't sure how to make that happen. In steps her future stepmother with the expertise and her dad opens his wallet. The next thing she knows, she's going shopping, her old clothes are in the trash, and her eyebrows are waxed. She's gone from plain to jaw-dropping, a transformation that changes her life in more ways than she anticipated. The girls start ignoring her while the guys start gawking. She's not sure she likes the transformation.

    After she's moved to California and made a friend, she and her friend hide their identity at youth camp. Chelsea transforms back into her original self with her wallflower ways. She learns that beauty is so much more than skin deep...it goes to who you are.

    I enjoyed reading this book because it was filled with humor. At the same time Chelsea made lots of mistakes as she worked through her transformation. She learned to moderate her changes as she learned who she truly was. There are lots of lessons in that as we learn how to become who we really are.
