Makeovers by Marcia

Makeovers by Marcia

Eighth grader Marcia Maitak has big problems: she has gained five extra pounds over the summer and she has some pimples that just won't go away. Alas and alack. But she's about to get some bigger challenges in life when she finds out she has to do a community service project in an old folks home. Marcia heads out to do makeovers of the elderly women and gets a lesson in beauty is only skin deep and the really good stuff is deep inside. It's fun to watch her figure out what really matters and at the same time to find out if Alex will ever ask her to the dance. Character development and maturing along with a cute guy make this a fun read. Ages 9-13 160 pages
