Publisher's Summary

Inner beauty wants out.

Eighteen-year-old Becky Randle is an ordinary girl who receives an impossible offer. She meets Tom Kelly, the world's top designer, and he promises to create three dresses to transform her from a nothing-special girl into the Most Beautiful Woman Who Ever Lived.

Becky thinks Tom is a lunatic, or that he's producing a hidden camera show called World's Most Gullible Poor People. But she accepts, and she's remade as Rebecca. When Becky looks in the mirror, she sees herself - an awkward mess of split ends and cankles. But when anyone else looks at Becky, they see pure five-alarm hotness.

Soon Rebecca is on the cover of Vogue and the new Hollywood darling. She then meets Prince Gregory, heir to the British throne, and everything starts to crumble. Because Rebecca aside, Becky loves him. But to love her back, Gregory would have to look past the blinding Rebecca to see the real girl inside. And for that, there's not enough magic in the world.

A screamingly defiant, hugely naughty, and impossibly fun free fall past catwalks, red carpets, and even the halls of Bucking-ham Palace, Gorgeous does the impossible: It makes you see yourself clearly for the first time.

Advisory: Contains strong language.

    Story
    "Modern Day Fairytale"

    The first couple chapters were rough ... but if you can make it through, the rest of the book is completely worth it. So incredibly funny ... I laughed so hard through out. Seriously, there is something great about a modern day fairy tale that is full of Witt and sarcasm. I truly enjoyed Becky's relationship with her best friend Rocher... Gosh everyone needs a friendship like that... Best comedic timing! I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a fun read.

    "Worth Reading"
    Would you try another book from Paul Rudnick and/or Elizabeth Morton?

    I would try ONE more book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was an interesting concept, although I think rather poorly executed. This should be in teen literature.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would not go see this movie.
