Gr 7-10 Another teen romance novel in which a young girl looks for the meaning of life via her mirror only to discover that ``looks aren't everything.'' Woody, 16, is tall and beautiful. So why does she always seem to fall for the macho guys who ultimately fail to make her happy? Woody believes that the answer will be found if she can talk with her long-lost father. Much to the book's discredit, that is exactly what happens. The psychological theories are trite, contrived and not at all typical of teenage thinking (unless, of course, the teenager is reading Freud). The heavy-handed beauty-is-only-skin-deep message losses credibility due to the amount of print devoted to Woody's beauty. The real message seems to be that one not only has to be beautiful but extremely talented. While the book will certainly find a large audience among teen romance fans, and weak characterization and plot contrivance are almost earmarks of the genre itself, the cutesy language and didactic tone rank this one below others of its kind.
