The perfect romantic makeover story about an every-girl whose dream comes true . . . Beatrice Wilson is our lovable Cinderella, who just got dumped by her very first boyfriend and put on twenty-five pounds. But then she’s discovered as a plus model. In the eyes of pop culture, Bee is Jessica Alba and then some! Now she must vanquish skinny rivals, fend off sleazy photogs, and banish jealous frenemies in her rise to superstardom. All the while, she’s torn between her first love and the surprisingly sincere up-and-coming rapper she tutors in calculus. But what?’ better than finding your prince charming? Finally learning to love yourself!
I liked the premise of the book, just not all of the execution of the book.
Bee is a premed student. Her boyfriend Brian broke up with her, crushing her heart and helped her expand her waistline. Then amazingly Bee gets noticed by a modeling scout. Bee ends up going full model and college student mode. She needs to stop tutoring Kevin, an aspiring rapper who wants to rap and have an education. Bee struggles with finding herself and what she stands for. Bee needs to watch herself around Savannah Hughes too – a bigtime supe model. Will she find herself in time? Or will Brian come back around like a boomerang and derail her? And what about the subtle hints that Kevin is dropping?
While it was a good read and I did enjoy it. I really wish there would have been more Bee and Kevin and less Bee and Brian. We know Brian is a dick and a user. You don’t need to rehash that. But Kevin, there was something about Kevin that I wanted Bee to explore and maybe that’s an adult book waiting to happen? Who knows.
Chela was great, I liked that she knew what she stood for. Probably because she is older than Bee. Bee fell flat. I just couldn’t connect with her on any level. I wanted too, but I couldn’t. I wanted to feel bad for her when Savannah Hughes goes after her, but I couldn’t. Not when Bee was stealing all of Savannah’s moves. Sorry Charlie, DO YOU!!
