Releases May 1st from Scholastic
When eighteen-year-old Becky Randle's mother dies, she's summoned from Missouri to meet Tom Kelly, the top designer in the world. He makes her an impossible offer: He'll create three dresses to transform Becky from an ordinary girl into the world's most beautiful woman.
Becky thinks Tom is a lunatic, but she accepts and is remade as Rebecca. When Becky looks in the mirror, she sees herself--a mess of split ends and cankles. But when anyone else looks at Becky, they see five-alarm hotness.
Soon Rebecca is the darling of the fashion world, but when she meets meets Prince Gregory, heir to the British throne, everything starts to crumble. Because Rebecca aside, Becky loves him. And the idea of a prince looking past Rebecca to fall in love with the ordinary girl inside? There's not enough magic in the world.
This just sounds like a really fun read, and I've always been a fan of the normal-girl-falls-in-love-with-a-prince plotline. Even though she's technically "five-alarm" hot to him and not so much normal, I have a feeling the normal is going to come into play and I can't wait. Also, bonus points for the word "cankles" in the synopsis. Gorgeous cover + handsome prince + story about inner beauty = WHY ISN'T IT MAY YET!? *shakes fist at calendar*
