Things Jolie Needs to Do Before She Bites It

Kerry Winfrey

In her second novel, Winfrey, (Love and Other Alien Experiences, 2017) who will be at Books By the Banks in October, presents a humorous and honest look at today’s standards of beauty. Although her name means pretty in French, Jolie knows that her extreme underbite makes her unattractive. In a couple of weeks she’ll undergo surgery to correct the deformity and Jolie can’t wait. She wants to be as pretty as her older sister Abbi, be able to chew her food without pain, not speak with a lisp, and no longer have headaches. But as the date for her surgery draws near, Jolie becomes paralyzed with the fear that she'll die while under the knife and decides to make a list of things to do before she "bites it." Jolie's top priority is to kiss her crush, Noah Reed!
