Who’s got time for hair curlers and high heels when you’re busy keeping baby turtles alive?

Chip has always been a tree-climbin’, fish-catchin’ daddy’s girl. When Daddy dies, Mama moves her and her sisters south to Grandma’s house and Chip struggles to find her place in a family full of beauty queens.

Just when she’s wishing for a sign from Daddy that her new life’s going to work, Chip discovers Miss Vernie’s School of Charm. Could unusual pageant lessons and secrets be the key to making Chip’s wishes a reality?

Full of spirit, hope, and a hint of magic, this enchanting debut novel tells the tale of one girl’s struggle with a universal question: How do you stay true to yourself and find a way to belong at the same time?

    LOVE the cover. Will display beautifully and can't wait to hold it up in front of a group of middle graders because I know they will rush me to get the book lol….although I might make them wait to at least let me get a book talk out! Welcome to the world of writing for such a great age group!!

    Lovely cover. Wonderful colors, and I'm also partial to not seeing the MC's face, so the reader can fill them in…
