Just like Beauty

Description

Just like Beauty is a brilliantly inventive debutnovel that blends adolescent angst and cultural satire and is set in adisconcertingly not-so-distant future complete with high-tech food, mutantanimals, socially sanctioned violence, and despoliation of the planet. Thissurprising combination gives author Lisa Lerner a fresh and funny way toexplore family dynamics, gender roles, competitiveness, and the “beauty myth” in a society that keeps reinventing them anew for each generation.

A plague of mutant grasshoppers is invading Americansuburbia. An underground suicide cult is gaining national prominence. Gangs ofteenage boys with blow torches run amok. But what really has fourteen-year-oldEdie Stein distracted from her town’s annual Feminine Woman of ConsciencePageant is Lana Grimaldi, the sexy girl next door. How does a feminine woman ofconscience deal with her?

Just like Beauty offersa comically trenchant look at where our culture is heading and the absurditythat passes for ordinary.
