Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg
From the outside looking in, one would assume that Lexi is the girl that has it all. She has great friends, smarts that come naturally to her, but above all things, she has a great personality.
But Lexi often doesn’t feel like the girl who has it all. Stuck in her seven-year old sister’s shadow, Lexi feels as if she just doesn’t compare to the pint-sized beauty queen. In comparison, Lexi often feels unattractive and unloved.
Sick of living in a shadow of an often bratty seven-year old, Lexi decides to step out of the shadows and into the limelight. But not willingly. In the hopes of helping her friend Benny overcome his fear of talking to guys, Lexi decides to overcome her fear of wearing a dress and makeup to school.
Suddenly transformed into the girl she’s always wanted to be, Lexi soon finds out the beauty and popularity aren’t all what they are cracked up to be. Sure the popular crowd has accepted her as one of their own, and the guy of her dreams finally takes notice, but what happens if Lexi herself, doesn’t fully accept these new changes?
