A Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice, 2005
Manitoba Young Reads' Choice Award Nominee 2005
Red Maple Book Award nominee 2005
Second of the Bringing
Up Beauty triology!
Bringing Up Beauty won the 1996 Silver Birch Children's Choice Award and the 1997 Manitoba Young Reader's Choice Award.
In Bringing Up Beauty, Elizabeth had her heart broken over the lab puppy she raised for - and returned to - a guide dog program. In A Different Kind of Beauty, she's trying again. But this time, she vows, she won't fall in love. She'll have fun, sure, but she won't surrender to those big soulful eyes and goofy puppy love. Hmmm... is it Beauty II she's resisting, or Scott, the "former" boyfriend who just keeps hanging around?
