(Age 14+) Highly recommended. Sarah Burke's life is about to get complicated. She's agreed to help her gorgeous best friend, Kirsten, catch the eye of the hot new guy at school, only to discover that he's actually perfect for her. And to make matters worse, Sarah's convinced that the guy of her dreams won't be able to see past her unusually large nose.
I felt truly into this book as I could relate to the main character. We all have our flaws and things we don't like about ourselves and we always feel like they are the reason for all of our rejections. I was gripped throughout the whole story wondering how it would turn out and if she would get the guy and keep her best friend. All in all a very gripping, exciting story that any girl would love to read and a must have if you have insecurities about your body.
