Although I found this book a bit confusing, the story line was overall pretty good. The end just sort of happened, and to be honest I don't even really know what happened, but it was nice to know their story. I think.

Becky calls a number her mom left behind, and winds up the most beautiful woman on earth. The book is very descriptive, which is good at times but also had me skimming over parts. Becky isn't an especially likeable character. Her bff is even coarser than she is. The end, the explanation of everything that had happened, was stupid. This book isn't worth the foul language you have to read through to get to the plot.

I didn't really like this book, it got confusing and didn't make much sense at times. Becky when she is transformed, refers to herself as Rebecca and it really seems like there are two different people inhabiting one body. I did enjoy Becky's interactions with the prince, hilarious. Overall, I felt like they were trying to cram too much into one book, mom dies, daddy issues, weight issues, self esteem, love, fame, magic, ghosts and it took away from what I believed to be the ultimate message love who you are, and don't try to be someone else. .

This book was a little strange and not all parts make sense, but it has a good ending that explains mostly everything. Overall, I really enjoyed it and it was unlike anything I've ever read.

When Becky's mom dies, lonely and poor, Becky makes her way to New York where she meets a man who changes her life. He designs three dresses for her, and when she wears them she's transformed into the most beautiful girl in the world. She still sees her old self in the mirror, but everyone else sees a jaw-dropping beauty, and her life is utterly transformed. At least for a while. Then, like in all fairy tales, things start to shift and go awry, and she needs to rely on her own quick-wittedness to make them right again.
