When Becky Randle's mother dies, she is whisked to New York City, where fashion designer Tom Kelly offers to transform her into a girl fit for a prince--but soon she begins to fear that she will lose touch with her real self. Publishers Weekly,Suppose fairy tales came true. Suppose an ordinary teenage girl from a Missouri trailer park was suddenly on the cover of Vogue, dating a Hollywood hunk, and possibly in line to be the next queen of England? That's what happens to 18-year-old Becky Randle in playwright/screenwriter Rudnick's YA debut, an inspired mashup of familiar stories-commoner becomes princess, ugly duckling turns beautiful-made new. Instead of three wishes, Becky, rechristened Rebecca, receives three dresses from reclusive super-designer Tom Kelly, who knew Becky's late mother. The ensembles transform Becky into nothing less than the most beautiful woman in the world-"Once I caught sight of my reflection I was riveted, hopelessly enraptured, as if I was watching the most impossibly glamorous car accident, or the birth of the baby Jesus, if Jesus had been the world's first supermodel"-with a couple catches. With writing that's hilarious, profane, and profound (often within a single sentence), Rudnick casts a knowing eye on our obsession with fame, brand names, and royalty to create a feel-good story about getting what you want without letting beauty blind you to what's real. Ages 14-up. Agent: David Kuhn, Kuhn Projects. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
