"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 hes never seen, a girl named Beauty who feels like anything butthe teenagers in these dozen stories feel the power of beauty, whether its 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.
Ann Angel is the author of six author biographies and works of criticism. She graduated from Vermont College?s MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults program and currently teaches writing at the college level. She lives in Wisconsin.
