Synopsis: Welcome to the summer of passion. For seventeen-year-old Jory Michaels, that means three sun-and-fun filled months of spending time with her best friends, obsessing over her crush, trying to find something she is passionate about, and…saving for a nose job. Jory is determined to lose the big, honking, bumpy monstrosity she calls the Super Schnozz—the one thing standing between her and happiness. So accident-prone Jory takes a job delivering wedding cakes to save up for surgery; she even keeps a book filled with magazine cutouts of perfect noses to show the doctor. To find her passion, she tries yoga; she tries becoming a foreign film buff; but nothing is quite as interesting as finding a boyfriend. And that can’t happen until Super Schnozz disappears…right? Jory is in for some big surprises when passion finds her—and she discovers the beautiful people she longs to look like are not as perfect as they seem.


Hilarious :) It had a great spin on the plot. I fawned over this book, * drooling may or may not have occured you will NEVER know* I loved it. It was hilarious. However while I kept rooting for her to end up with her dream boy, *i wont tell any more than that* i was also rooting for the other boy *no names....it ruins it XP* anyway LOVED this book. I have actually been dying to read it for a while now. It was just incredible. The whole book is her focusing on buying a new nose. Until she basically has an epiphany and her priorities are finally set straight :) She has a lot ot realize by the end of the book, but trust me what she realizes will make you all smile :) *see a smile!*

This cover automatically reminded me of one of my favorite poems "Barbie Doll" by Marge Pierce (http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/barbie-doll/). I like that it deal with the whole idea of perfection not being what it is crack up to be like the poem. I will be checking this out.
