[nice tight clean copy, no discernible wear to book at all; jacket shows only a bit of soiling]. An early work by this prolific young-adult fiction writer, probably best known for her science-fiction books. This one tells the story of a recent high-school graduate with ambitions to become a professional actress, but who is nagged by her mother to enter a local beauty contest -- which, "to her surprise and embarrassment, she wins," and then begins to become increasingly sucked into that world. This is a review copy, with the publisher's slip laid in (on which the author's middle name is typo'd). Very difficult to find, except as an ex-library book or a paperback.
