Gorgeous is about an 18 year old girl named Becky, living a seemingly average life in a small town. Her life was normal until her mother suddenly died and left her a mysterious message that would change everything she thought she knew. With the help of the billionaire Tom Kelly, Becky will transform her entire life.
Paul Rudnick has a very humorous and mysterious writing style. He gives just enough information to keep you informed and interested but leaves out enough to keep you wanting more to read.
There are no illustration aside from the cover. The cover is simply black with a girl in a red dress running off the page. It is very intriguing and even a little dangerous.
I loved reading this book! It has a great mix of mystery, romance, and humor. I would recommend it for middle school students who are looking for a twist on a typical story about a girl trying to find herself.
