North of Beautiful: Justina Chen Headley's Find Beauty Challenge

I am in awe of Justina Chen Headley.  Not only is she a talented author of books of some of my favorite YA books -- (Nothing But the Truth (and a few white lies) and Girl Overboard) -- she believes in giving back with every one of her books.  Check out her interview for details.

Justina's new book North of Beautiful will be released in just a couple weeks.
From behind, you’d think Terra Cooper had it all: she’s tall but not too tall, has a figure to kill for, and boasts naturally blonde hair. But the palm-sized birthmark on her face might as well be her fate map. Everyone in her small, touristy town knows what’s hidden beneath the heavy makeup she’s worn since birth. Sick of being the town oddity and even sicker of her caustic mapmaker of a father, Terra yearns to escape the suffocating grid of her life. And then she nearly runs over an Asian Goth boy, her age…and encounters True Beauty in him…and herself.

Load a 90-second video on YouTube: NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL: FIND BEAUTY CHALLENGE, telling the world what's truly beautiful to you, and you might win yourself an iPod Touch!

For every video about beauty that fans upload to this channel, award-winning author Justina Chen Headley will donate $10--up to $1,000--to Global Surgical Outreach to help children in third-world countries born with cleft lips and palates.

Time to make a video!
