More About This Book

Overview

Betty Suarez may be a fashion-challenged girl from Jackson Heights, Queens, but as she's quick to tell you, she has big dreams and "tons of creative ideas." Ugly Betty: The Book will be a one-of-a-kind companion to the wildly popular dramedy. Fashioned to resemble the ultra private and confidential white binder known as "the Book" (the Mode magazine mock-up prominently featured in the show), this book will have a paper-over-board cover and be designed to look like an issue of Mode that Betty edited herself.
The book's chapters will be presented in the form of magazine articles based on the show's storylines, all told from Betty's unique point of view. Articles range from fashion layouts, "What to Wear to Work" and "Making Your Prom Dress Work Again"; career, "How to Survive Your Co-workers" and "15 Things Your Boss Should Never Ask You to Do"; relationship stories, "Are You With the Right Guy?"; beauty makeovers, "Before and After, From Alex to Alexis"; entertaining, "Throwing a Quincea era" and "Ignacio's Recipes"; Pop culture, "The Best Telenovelas You Don't Know About," and of course, the more serious pieces that are near and dear to Betty's heart, "Proud to be Latina" and "Family: Bond More, Feud Less." Editorial "comments" from Daniel and Wilhelmina will pepper the text throughout. Wilhelmina, as usual, can be counted on to provide perfectly written, catty counterpoint to the earnest tone of Betty's text. The cast, producers, writers, and other key crew will be interviewed for the behind-the-scene stories that readers love.
Filled with full-color photography from the show, photos of the cast, as well as beauty and fashion photos to give the articles true magazine life, this book will appeal to the many devoted fans of Ugly Betty. Ugly Betty: The Book will be a fun and funny book celebrating the spirit of the show and embracing its vibrant sense of humor, style, and good old-fashioned Queens values.
