Sydney Salter

My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters

“Simultaneously painful and hilarious . . . Captures the awkwardness of adolescence while driving home a message about self-acceptance” (Publishers Weekly).
It’s the end of junior year, and the Summer of Passion is about to begin. At least that’s Jory Michaels’s plan, as she starts exploring the possibilities of her future—and the possibility of scoring a boyfriend. Only one obstacle seems to stand in the way of her happiness—her curvy, honking, bumpy nose, or as she calls it, Super Schnozz . . .
Jory takes a job delivering wedding cakes to save up for a nose job at the end of the summer, just in time for senior year. She even keeps a book filled with magazine cutouts of perfect noses to show the doctor. But nothing is ever easy for accident-prone Jory—and before she knows it, her Summer of Passion falls apart faster than the delivery van she crashes. In this hilarious and heartbreaking novel, Sydney Salter delivers a story about broadening your horizons, accepting yourself, and finding love right under your nose.
“Teens will enjoy Jory’s comic self-deprecation.” —Booklist
