Things Jolie Needs to Do Before She Bites It by Kerry Winfrey

Jolie has always felt unpretty thanks to her large underbite.  Now she is finally old enough to have corrective surgery and is looking forward to blending in with everyone else.  A couple of months before her surgery date, however, she suddenly realizes that she could die during the surgery.  The chances are very slim, but still...  So with her two best friends, Evelyn and Derek, she makes a list of things she wants to do just in case she "bites it."   

This is one of those fairly formulaic stories where a girl finds out she had a lot of what it takes all along, but I love those kind of stories.  Jolie is such a winning character and her things to do are totally doable and they lead to cute consequences. Like all romantic heroines, she is pretty clueless about what's happening right in front of her, but that's okay because she gets it in the end along with a good boost of self-esteem and a realization that she was never really all that different from her perfect sister in the first place.
