Its whats on the inside that counts, says everyone and anyone whos ever been concerned with a teenage girls self-esteem. Apparently, those seven words--or nine if youre really picky about contractions--will fix a lot. Theyll fix insecurities. Theyll fix self-consciousness. Theyll even fix the fact that none of us can open a magazine or turn on the TV without being bombarded by images of a million pretty girls. So thank every ounce of goodness for those seven words.

...Or not. Any teenage girl will tell you its not that simple. One person can easily say, Sheep are blue, but a billion drawings, movies, and farms will show you that theyre white--and in a few very rare cases, black. Beauty is the same way. It will never matter how many times that one person tells us to look inside ourselves if the world around us doesnt. As a result, we develop this obsession with the way we look and what people think of the way we look. It can be something as simple and innocent as the clothes we wear, or it can be as dark and scary as an eating disorder. In the United States alone, there are ten million girls suffering from anorexia and/or bulimia. 95% of those girls are between the ages of 12 and 25, setting anorexia at the third most common illness among teenagers and resulting in a death rate 12 times higher than the norm. Thats ten millions girls, 95% very young girls, who really dont know theyre beautiful--who think beauty lies within the size label on their clothes or the flawlessness of their skin. Im here to tell them--and you--that it doesnt.

As a 17 year old, I know its whats on the inside that counts doesnt lessen the perfection of Heidi Klums legs or Taylor Swifts--everything. I know that the battle with popularity isnt over just because we say we dont care. I know what it feels like to be a teenage girl because I am one. I have similar insecurities, experiences, and friends. I make the same mistakes, love the same boy band celebrities, and probably hear the same naggy protests from my parents. I understand what its like to be a teenager. Thats why I wrote this book, because I really, truly, and whole-heartedly understand the ups and downs of a teenagers usually confusing life.

You as in ugly is a search for truth in the importance of inner beauty. Is there such a thing? More importantly, is it actually beautiful? It took me an aha! encounter with a homeless mother and daughter to finally answer: yes and yes. I saw what inner beauty looked like, acted like, and felt like. Now it seems only fair that you know too. In this book, Ive chosen seventeen real girls that have qualities truly capable of proving the existence of inner beauty. Theyre qualities with a story. They are qualities that sum up a beauty deeper than make-up and money and clothes. They are qualities of inner beauty, something we shouldnt be pushing aside anymore.
