Tanisha wants what most teenage girls want: an A on her math test, a boyfriend, new jeans and a mother who doesn t pop pills. In Boys, Beauty & Betrayal, you ll meet fourteen year old Tanisha Carlson and her friends at Battle Creek Junior High School: Maria, Lori, Rashanda, Grace and Justine. Witty, smart and moderately popular, the fabric of Tanisha s world is woven together by a complex thread of secrets and lies. Her teen drama intensifies when she faces rejection from the boy she likes and a cat fight with her best friend. Hiding behind her Mona Lisa crooked smile is another secret that Tanisha fears will destroy her middle school standing. Yet, like most adolescent girls, Tanisha is determined to fake her way to fabulousness without snapping like a twig in her worn designer jeans. In this novel, Tanisha learns the true meaning of friendship, realizes that the world is not black and white, and begins to find herself in the process. Readers will enjoy part one in this coming of age series with all of its surprising twists and turns."
