Scottie-Annie is a young girl whose spare time is spent with her family catering to her 16-year-old sister’s beauty pageant career. Because of this, her self-image is low and she continuously devalues her own achievements. This issue of self-worth especially comes forward when her sister signs her up for the middle school beauty pageant.

Girls from 12-17 would like this book; its protagonist is relatable to girls.
