Overview


I need to change my life. On the surface, it doesn't look too bad. Great body, check. Pretty face, check. Job, check. Chicken pox. Check.

Stuck in her Danbury, Connecticut, condo in self-imposed exile until she's contagion-free, Scarlett Jane Stein keeps circling around to a passing comment her friend Pam made: how everything (read: men) comes to Scarlett just because she's attractive.

Is it true? All her life she's thought that she was fun to be around, that people liked her. Was it only because she was pretty (say it—because she's got incredible breasts)? Or is Pam, tired of playing second fiddle, now playing her? All Scarlett knows is that she's never found the man she believes is out there, her One True Love. So maybe Scarlett needs to change things up.

So it's goodbye, Scarlett and hello, dowdier, schlumpier Lettie Shaw. And with her new look, new name, new home and new job, is there a chance that Lettie-née-Scarlett will find someone who loves her for who she is inside? Or has Scarlett's little change of face turned into the biggest mistake of her life?

    Great Read

    I really liked this book. I think that Scarlett still could have learned a lot about herself without her so-called 'default bestfriend' Pam's interferance. Pam was nothing more than a pathetic person who only used this 'experiment' as a way to put Scarlett down so that she could boost herself. She knew that Scarlett was a more beautiful person both inside and out, and she did everything that she could to make Scarlett feel inferior. She never cared about how this would affect Scarlett. All she cared about was making Scarlett frumpy so that she could look so much better than she was. In the end she did change her outside appearance, but she was still an ugly human being inside. Pam got what she deserved at the end. She was a real witch to Scarlett who was nothing but ever nice to her. With 'friends' like Pam who needs enemies.

    high-school student review

    lauren baratz-logsted is by far my favorite author due to her ability to relate characters to the readers. She is very good at being descriptive and making the characters come to life from the way she puts them through hardships that average people go through. All the other reviews on this page probably have very accurate credibility but mine is from my own experience from reading her books. A little change of face is my favorite because it introduces the theme and characters so well. Overall, I believe Logsted is very good at being descriptive in order to relate her characters and make you feel as though you are a character in the story yourself. A little Change of Face is a page turner Whenever you go to put the book down, whether you have to go to the bathroom or leave for work, something inside you is ambivalent about letting it go.

    Smart and sassy

    A LITTLE CHANGE OF FACE is a book that makes you think. And above all, makes you laugh along with the characters and their antics. The author has done a wonderful job in creating a protagonist who has flaws (just like everybody else) but the character is smart enough to recognise them and do something about it. Her off-siders are fantastic, and Pam, Scarlett/Lettie's Default Best Friend is cunning - but in the nicest possible way, of course. For anyone who's fantasised about doing a complete change of personality and/or looks and wanted to know if the grass is actually greener, then this book is the perfect read. I highly recommend A LITTLE CHANGE OF FACE - you won't be disappointed!

    An intriguing contemporary chick lit

    In Danbury, Connecticut, her best friend Pam commented that Scarlett Jane Stein has her share of male friends and admirers because of her boob size. This shakes up Scarlett Jane, who thought men liked her because she was friendly and a nice person. If Pam is right and not just jealous, Scarlett wonders if that could be why she never met Mr. Right................. Scarlett decides to experiment by sending out a frumpy schlumpy version. Pam helps her change into a dowdy version of herself. Scarlett changes her name to Lettie Shaw, her look, her home and even her job. Now she hopes to find someone who will get past her chest size to love the inner Scarlett. Two men enter her life, but does either see past Lettie to Scarlett................................ A LITTLE CHANGE OF FACE is an intriguing contemporary chick lit starring a likable protagonist who wonders if her good looks are a handicap hindering her finding a man who loves her. The story line is fun to follow when it concentrates on the transformation to a dumpy lead protagonist and the two men in her life. However, sidebars to include her so-called best friend acting like a Kamikaze drill instructor treating her like the enemy and Scarlett speaking hip hop with a black attorney pal seem inane for educated people and clearly in poor taste. Simply Scarlett needs to dump her best pal and treat TB (don¿t ask) with respect maybe the love of her life will do likewise........................... Harriet Klausner
