What's it like to be the most beautiful girl in the world?
Molly desperately wants to be beautiful. And that's what she tells Dharma, the mysterious portrait artist who sketches her face at the town fair just minutes after she's humiliated in front of Hudson, the guy of her dreams. When Molly wakes up the following morning, she's the most beautiful girl in Miracle, Ohio. Babies coo in her arms, her house fills with flowers from dozens of drooling boys, and she's chosen to be a model for the hottest store in town. Best of all, Hudson finally falls for her.
But Molly soon discovers that beauty--and her wish--comes with a price. She's faced with an impossible choice: Will reclaiming her true identity mean letting go of Hudson for good?

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.
this book is just lovely. i read it at my neighborhood library and have been searching for it ever since so i could indulge myself in it once more. i am only 13 and have read many great books because i am well known at my school for reading and have won many awards because of it. the librarian is like my best friend (that was a joke). i moved away which made it harder to locate this book. but thanks to barnes & noble i was able to read the entire book online once more. thank you Barnes & Noble
I was wondering what age group this for?
