Summary, etc.:
A must-read for budding young feminists, The Prettiest is an incisive, empowering novel by Brigit Young about young women fighting back against sexism and objectification. THE PRETTIEST: It's the last thing Eve Hoffmann expected to be, the only thing Sophie Kane wants to be, and something Nessa Flores-Brady knows she'll never be . . . until a list appears online, ranking the top fifty prettiest girls in the eighth grade. Eve is disgusted by the way her body is suddenly being objectified by everyone around her. Sophie is sick of the bullying she's endured after being relegated to number two. And Nessa is tired of everyone else trying to tell her who she is. It's time for a takedown. As the three girls band together, they begin to stand up not just for themselves, but for one another, too.
