gorgeousWritten by Paul Rudnick

Becky and her mother live in a shabby trailer but get along very well. In fact, Becky thinks the world of her mother, who is HUGE and never goes out! When her mother dies, Becky finds a phone number to call. She is flown to New York by designer Tom Kelly, and shown pictures of her mother that are incredibly beautiful. She is asked to wear three dresses, red, white, and black, and told she will become the “most beautiful woman in he world.” As a result she meets a movie star and a prince. There is some magic, adventure, romance, humor and mystery in the tale. Unfortunately her friend is constantly using “F” words and other obscenities. This is quite distracting to a great story as Becky grows and transforms into a charming person.
