Beauty Tips for Girls, Paperback Book

Beauty Tips for Girls Paperback



What happens when the worst advice is given at the worst possible time?

A smart, funny, and feminist novel, satirizing the effects of the media on women. "Beauty Tips for Girls" is a story told by three very different women.

Katy is a lonely teenager obsessed with a girls magazine, "Misty," the articles in which could be leading her into danger.

Her mother, Corinne, is drowning her sorrows and disappointments in alcohol.

Meanwhile, Katy s teacher, Jane, is finding it difficult to move beyond her own troubling past to help.

As the three women s stories progress, through extracts from "Misty," letters, confession, and personal narrative, what emerges is a witty and compelling satire of the beauty industry and a very contemporary take on femininity and womanhood."
