All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 7 Up—This book profiles 50 past and present beauty icons, focusing on their unique "look" and including a quarter-page glossy photo. Instead of covering the full process of each woman's beauty screen, a single attribute—eyes, lips, brows, skin, or hair—is highlighted. Featured looks include Marilyn Monroe's juicy, red lips, Angelina Jolie's cat eyes, Jennifer Lopez's glowing skin, and Kate Winslet's no-makeup makeup. Clear and succinct instructions for achieving each look appear on the facing page. The presentation is clean, with enough information to satisfy, but not overwhelm. The accompanying illustrations of lip-pencil lines, eye-shadowed lids, etc., are particularly effective. An illustrated lineup of makeup brushes describes how each tool is used. There is a fair representation of ethnic divas, though most are from the latter half of the 20th century: Grace Jones, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Lucy Liu, to name a few. A few of the selected photos are poorly chosen, either unflattering or failing to showcase the described feature, but this is a minor blemish. The overall presentation is fun and playful. Teens will enjoy trying new looks and learning a bit of style history in the process.—Richelle Roth, Boone County Public Library, KY
