Beauty feels like she’s never lived up to her name. No one at school understands her or wants to be her friend, so she finds acceptance with her mom and grandmother. Grandma’s famous saying is, “Pretty is as pretty diz (does).” People may be beautiful on the outside, but how they act truly determines their real beauty. A new girl in Beauty’s sixth grade class teaches her about confidence and true friendship. This girl is very special, however, because she has progeria, a disease that makes children age very rapidly. Beauty has to decide who she wants to be: a genuine friend or just another pretty, empty face. I would recommend this book to kids ages 10 and up. It was too good to miss!
