Waiting on Wednesday : Just Look at Me Now

It's a bit late but not too late, still Wednesday here...been a busy day. 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and focuses on a book we're pining to get our hands on but have yet to be released. So my WoW post is Just Look at Me Now by Nell Dixon. It caught my eye in a random browse around.

From Goodreads:
Tia's top beauty tip: apply heavy make-up carefully to prevent any cracks from showing...Life is fabulous for Tia Carpenter. She has it all, money, looks, a great job as the beauty expert at stylish Platinum magazine and, at last, the attention of her unrequited high school love, Josh Banks. But Tia has a secret -- back at school she was Barbara Baker, overweight, crooked teeth, frizzy hair and no fashion sense. Cosmetic dentistry, losing seven stones in weight and a complete makeover later, Tia has successfully erased her past life as Big Barb, tub of lard, until the day Juliet Gold, the bane of her teenage existence, arrives to work at the magazine. Juliet always got everything she ever wanted, and now she wants both Tia's job and Josh. Tia will have to use every makeover trick she's ever learned to stop Juliet from uncovering her past and stealing her man.
It sounds fab, funny, girly and full of drama! I love the ugly duckling turned swan. I believe most humans go through such a period. I am keen to know how it all turns out. I know what it's like to change self esteem wise and not being afraid to be happy, so I feel like I can relate. I'm a chick lit fan but I'm not a girly girl and though this reeks of girlocity there's something about it.  I've read the unedited first chapter of the book which you can find on her website...I also love the  cover.
If you want you can even check out Nell's blog and get to know her better :)

Off now to check out the other WoW posts.
