—Advance praise for B as in Beauty—

“From chapter zero (yes that’s how it starts) B as in Beauty is a winner.  Hilarious, bizarre and poignant all in one wonderful read. I absolutely loved it.  B as in Beauty is B as in Brilliant!”

—Soledad O’Brien

 

“Perfectly witty, funny and truly engaging. Pure escapism, yet strangely real… I couldn’t get enough of B”

—Daisy Fuentes

 

“A funny and moving search for one’s self esteem. It makes you realize that beauty lies not in the eyes of the beholder but in the eyes of your own mind and heart. ”

—Denise Quiñones, Miss Universe 2001
