Summary
With stories by acclaimed and exciting new YA writers: Louise Hawes, J. James Keels, Ron Koertge, Chris Lynch, Norma Fox Mazer, Lauren Myracle, Jamie Pittel, Anita Riggio, Mary Ann Rodman, Ellen Wittlinger, Jacqueline Woodson, Tim Wynne-Jones. A stellar line-up of young adult writers examines our relationship with beauty in stories that haunt, amuse, stir, and fascinate. A beauty queen with a chin-hair problem, an aspiring model who would rather take pictures than be in them, a boy in love with the gorgeous nurse he's never seen, a girl named Beauty who feels like anything but-the teenagers in these dozen stories feel the power of beauty, whether it's to trap, save, torment, or comfort. In an era when image seems to have triumphed over virtue and reason, this timely, discussion-provoking collection asks young readers to think about what is truly beautiful
