Beauty - what does it mean?

edited by Ann Angel

A prom queen with a chin-hair problem, a boy in love with a nurse he's never seen, a girl forced by her mother to become a model; these are teens who struggle against society's notions of beauty and attractiveness. Funny and sad, but always thought-provoking, each story shows characters who long for acceptance while striving to maintain their individuality. At the same time, they challenge our notions about physical and inner beauty.

A  good book for parent-daughter/son discussion.
