Overview

Beth and Anna are in complete despair.

They'd planned to spend their fifteenth year transforming themselves from mediocre mates to gorgeous goddesses. But when they notice that their sixteenth birthdays are rapidly approaching, they realize that they're running a bit behind schedule.

So the girls make a list of the ten things they think they need to do to be more popular and beautiful. But from homemade hair extensions to bad fake tans, it's just one catastrophe after another. And to make matters worse, it seems like the two hottest guys in school are always watching!!

Not only are they far from being the sixteen-year-old goddesses they set out to become, but it looks like love is off the agenda too.

Or is it?...

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kelly Grebinoski
If you are into tanning, hip hairstyles, drama, text messages, clubbing, and boys, then you'll enjoy this read. Best friends, Beth and Anna, are approaching 16 years old. They have not accomplished what they had intended. As panic mode sets in, they make a list of things to get done before their big days. This includes things from getting gorgeous hair to clubbing to getting great nails and tans. Getting their hair done turns out to be a big drama. Getting hair extensions did not turn their brown mops into Beyonce. Some of what they wish for, like getting a job, comes true. In their attempts at checking off their list items, they find out there is a little more to it than that. As for Baz and Greg (the school hotties), they found better ones! What else did they find out as they approach sixteen? You'll find out if you can get through the British slang: naff, planked, mum, sussed, fancy, and rucksack, to name a few.
School Library Journal
Gr 7-9-This fluffy narrative takes place just outside present-day London. Anna and Beth decide to create a list of 10 things to do to become fabulous before their 16th birthdays. Their priorities range from getting fantastic hair and finding hot boyfriends to perfecting leg waxing and fake tans and learning to walk in stilettos. The teens' voices are believable, and there are some laugh-out-loud results of their attempts to become extraordinary. However, one might wonder where the girls' parents are for some of their more ridiculous schemes. Also, the ending wraps up a bit too quickly and the big night out, which is the goal of all their efforts, is anticlimactic after so much preparation. Readers who clamor for chick-lit imports such as Louise Rennison's "Georgia Nicolson" books (HarperCollins) will enjoy this one as well, but it's not a priority purchase.-Rebecca Stine, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
