Blake might be pretty, rich, and the Queen Bee of Harrison High, but she has her problems too, especially when a new app is announced that might change her life. The Pretty App is designed to find the prettiest teenage girl in the country. When Blake is chosen as a finalist, she is taken to a reality show where she will compete to be the prettiest of all. When it appears that her presence in the contest might only be to help her dad’s political campaign after he bought her way into it, Blake has to decide how badly she wants to win and that someone’s importance is not based on their physical appearance. With the help of her friends, she works to become a better person than she was in the past.
