Changing Faces is a contemporary novel for teen girls inspired by the BBC and The Learning Channel (TLC) shows "Makeover Story" and "What Not to Wear," and the Style Channel’s "Fashion Emergency" and "A Second Look." It includes plenty of fun and fluffy scenes of makeover magic— the duckling to the swan phenomenon that teens love.
The concept for the series, Real TV, grows out of the reality television craze that is sweeping the country. Wendy Lawton realized that when she and her 17-year-old daughter took one of their "mindless girlfriend breaks" they often tuned in to watch one of The Learning Channel makeover shows modeled after popular BBC shows. These shows— like Trading Spaces, What Not to Wear, Makeover Story, Faking It, etc— are hot-hot-hot and seem to be changing the face of American TV.From the Author:
"The reason we love these makeover shows," Lawton says, "Is that deep inside we yearn to experience real transformation." She draws the connection between makeover and transformation in each book in the series. "That hunger for transformation comes from God," Lawton continues. "Olivia, as well as the other characters in the series, discovers that it can’t be satisfied by a new color of lipstick or a fresh coat of paint."
