The Prettiest

Written by Brigit Young

Published by Roaring Brook Press

Publisher's Summary

An incisive, empowering middle grade novel about a trio of unlikely friends who fight back against middle school sexism.

A list appears online, ranking the top fifty prettiest girls in the eighth grade.

Eve Hoffman is disgusted by the grating, anonymous text messages she's been receiving ever since she was ranked number one.

Sophie Kane is sick of the bullying she's endured after being knocked down a peg by the list.

And Nessa Flores-Brady is tired of the outside world trying to define who she is.

Reeling from the rampant sexism and objectifcation in their school, the three girls attempt to track down the list's creator. But are they prepared for what they might find?
