My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters by Sydney Salter

Pub Date: April 2009

Summary: The Summer of Passion.

For seventeen-year-old Jory Michaels, she hopes the next three months are the best summer ever.

Spending time with her best friends. Obsessing over her crush. Trying to find what she is passionate about. Saving money for a nose job.

The only thing that stand between Jory and her happiness is her nose, the Super Schnozz.

To cover the cost of surgery, Jory takes up a job delivering wedding cakes.

But she forgets to mention that she is accident prone.

Jory tries to find her passion by trying yoga, trying to become a foreign film buff, but to her, nothing is as good as finding a boyfriend.

But, to Jory, that can't happen until she loses the Super Schnozz.

She soon discovers though, that the beautiful person she want to become, may not be as perfect as she wants to be.

Review: My Big Nose was kind of a disappointing book. The beginning was too slow. I wasn't really pulled into the story as I hoped to be. The middle and ending though, did pick up a bit to the point where I ended up loving the end. Jory was such a cute character. I didn't like her that much at first, but by the ending I wanted to be her friend. I thought it was nice how she was there for her friends but I didn't like how obsessed she was with getting a nose job. I know that people out there are like that, but I think people, girls especially, should be comfortable in their body. I think that I might read this book again, but I do recommend it to readers.
