The Look

Two sisters face vastly different futures in the latest work from Bennett (Sequins, Secrets, and Silver Linings, 2011). Ted (short for Edwina), 15, doesn't think of herself as glamorous. But her gorgeous older sister Ava is. So everyone's surprised when Ted, not Ava, is told from a modeling scout that she has "The Look." But just as Ted's jet-setting off on her new career, Ava is diagnosed with cancer and must struggle with chemo-induced nausea and hair loss. Ted feels she has to choose between her career and her responsibilities to her family. With their worlds turned upside down, the sisters have to look past appearances to figure out what really matters.
