If ten girls were asked to describe the &quot;perfect&quot; girl, they would likely rattle off an eerily similar list of qualities--from hair, skin, and weight to a cute button nose. That's a problem, because God has given girls a desire to be desirable. If girls think that they will be most wanted if they fit a one-size-fits-all image of &quot;perfection,&quot; they will continually chase that proverbial carrot their entire lives. <br /> <br /> <i>Backwards Beauty</i> examines ten cultural lies young women listen to regarding beauty to help them unpack how they're looking at themselves through the wrong lens. The &quot;tips to feel ugly&quot; range from &quot;compare yourself to every other girl&quot; to &quot;eat junk and diet, diet, diet.&quot; <br /> <br />Reading a book by Jessie Minassian is like sitting down with a friend and talking about the hard things in life. Girls will be able to find freedom and hope in the midst of a culture that idolizes beauty.
