A book that will make you see yourself clearly for the first time.

When Becky Randle's mother dies, she's whisked from her trailer park home to New York. There she meets Tom Kelly, the world's top designer, who presents Becky with an impossible offer: He'll design three dresses to transform the very average Becky into the most beautiful woman who ever lived.

Soon Becky is remade as Rebecca - pure five-alarm hotness to the outside world and an awkward mess of cankles and split ends when she's alone. With Rebecca's remarkable beauty as her passport, soon Becky's life resembles a fairy tale. She stars in a movie, VOGUE calls, and she starts to date Prince Gregory, heir to the English throne. That's when everything crumbles. Because Rebecca aside, Becky loves him. But the idea of a prince looking past Rebecca's blinding beauty to see the real girl inside? There's not enough magic in the world.


Not So Snow White
K. Sean Jennkrist
Genre
Was Free, now $2.99
Purchase from Amazon


Amazon summary:
When fate places a twisted fairytale about Snow White in her hands, Winter Snow is destined to change her life as she journeys along a sometimes magical and frightening path of discovery. In her heart, one thing is certain. If she can find her dad who has mysteriously disappeared, everything will turn back to normal.

Of course, for Winter that means overcoming a few obstacles, like witches and magic, or feeling clueless about where to begin the journey for a lost parent. Complicating matters even more is that odd behavior she possesses, and it seems to be growing stronger every day. Who knew a normal, almost boring teen, the one everybody seems to pick on and call freak, could have psychic power? Adding to the weirdness is a voice invading her mind that belongs to a fairylike muse Winter calls Duane.

However, the journey seems to move forward when Winter meets with the mysterious Lucinda Mayhem who reveals a past full of secrets connecting them in ways that both frighten and intrigue Winter. Despite her inner voice warning her to stay away, Winter is drawn even closer to the Mayhems when she meets and falls for Lucinda's nephew, Stephen, who seems to have some secrets of his own.

In mesmerizing detail, fantasy meets reality, creating a world of magical discovery along with an ever looming threat of evil as Winter Snow solves the mystery of her true identity. The fairytale's treasures—a mirror, a potion, and a catalyst, are tools that could help Winter succeed, if she can only defeat the evil nemesis who would destroy her father and any chance for true love. Of course, she also has a little help from her friends along with her very devoted and determined magical muse Duane in the journey to find answers and bring her dad home again.

NOT SO SNOW WHITE is part of Jennkrist's series of modern fairytales that includes CINDERELLA GEEK. Jennkrist is the pen name for Kathryn Long who also writes mysteries such as WHIPS, CUFFS, AND LITTLE BROWN BOXES.

Amazon summary:
All alone on the Kansas prairie, Summer Steadman has few options. With her husband and children lost to illness, she has no desire to continue on farther west to where she and her husband planned to build their future.

Widower Peter Ollenburger, the local gristmill owner, needs someone to teach his young son. When he hears of a "learned woman" in town, he believes she is the answer to his prayers. He soon discovers, however, that helping this outsider may have troublesome consequences.

There is little this father will not do for his son, but as the boy begins to look at Summer as more than a teacher, Peter must make a choice. Does he marry this woman to give his son a new mother, or does he marry only for love?

Will Summer's broken heart ever be able to love again?

Amazon summary:
INK IS IN THEIR BLOOD.

On the heels of a family tragedy, Katie Greene must move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn't know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can't seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.

When Katie meets aloof but gorgeous Tomohiro, the star of the school's kendo team, she is intrigued by him...and a little scared. His tough attitude seems meant to keep her at a distance, and when they're near each other, strange things happen. Pens explode. Ink drips from nowhere. And unless Katie is seeing things, drawings come to life.

Somehow Tomo is connected to the Kami, powerful ancient beings who once ruled Japan-and as feelings develop between Katie and Tomo, things begin to spiral out of control. The wrong people are starting to ask questions, and if they discover the truth, no one will be safe.
