Zitface by Emily Howse

Thirteen-year-old Olivia Hughes has always considered herself a lucky girl. She knows what she wants to do with her life—be an actress. And she’s already on her way. She just landed a national ad campaign that should get her noticed.

But then her luck runs out. A little pimple turns into a full-blown case of acne, with serious side effects for her career, her relationships, and her self-esteem. Now all she wants to do is hide, but she can’t. She goes from being the girl at school who everyone wants to be . . . to Zitface, a girl who is teased, dumped, and even fired.

What do you do when you’ve lost control of everything in your life? Olivia has to find out the hard way. And maybe, what she finds isn’t so bad after all.

Zitface is a really good book about a thirteen year old inspired actress. Olivia Hughes is a normal 13-year- old whose life is as perfect as can be until she wakes up to find a zit on her face. The zit goes but is replaced by more zits. And Olivias world is turned upside down! The boy she has a major crush on asks her out but soon moves on to her best friend, her acting carrer is going down the toilet...and fast! Her sister is a total pest and not to mention that her and her dad arent the closest in the world and shes not a very big fan of his girlfriend either, and lets not forget the fact that she STILL has acne. But, toward the end everything starts to clear up. Im not going to give out much but lets just say that Olivia is making decisions that are great and finds the perfect boyfrined! I thought all of Zitface's 202 pages is worth the read! Hope this helped better then the overview!!! :)
