Such a Pretty Face


I'm just one of the authors who collaborated on this anthology edited by Ann Angel (Rise Up Singing). The lineup is truly stellar, and includes Jacqueline Woodson, Ron Koertge, Tim Wynne-Jones, and many others. Each story turns on a universal ache for self-acceptance and a confusion about image. When teens talk about beauty, they talk about their lives; this strong collection, which includes a reader's guide, is a great place to begin the wide-reaching discussion. 

BOOKLIST: Wild, funny, and thought-provoking, this anthology's stories, contributed by well-known authors for teens, challenge readers to reconsider their notions of beauty.
