Fix by Leslie Margolis

It's been almost three years since Cameron has seen the kids from her old high school who used to call her "Beakface". Sure her nose job worked wonders for her image at her new school, Bel Air Prep, and won her four fun, fabulous, and popular BFFs and a hot, nature loving BF. But, standing face to face with her tormentors she feels the same insecurities that haunted her back at her old school. Suddenly worrying about how she looks on the outside, she makes a life altering decision; one that would change the way the people look at her for the rest of her life.

But for Cameron's little sister Allie it's the complete opposite. Sure she may look like the before picture of her sister pre nose job-- and will probably look like her post nose job. But, when her own nose job looms in the corners of the near future, she questions value of beauty on the inside and wonders if that isn't enough.

Even though it was very predictable Fix was a good read. It was obvious from the first few chapters what road the sisters were going to choose. Leslie Margolis covers the oxymoron that is beauty and the impact it has on society by delivering the messages of self acceptance and knowing and liking who you are. Miss Margolis I applaud you for your efforts and would like you to know that it did not go unnoticed.
