Carmen DuPre is a stunningly, beautiful woman and knows it. All heads turn when Carmen crosses your path. To our dismay, Carmen is aware of her beauty and is a Supreme Diva with a belligerent attitude. Carmen has two sisters, Della and Lindsey along with a brother Maxwell, and the family's mother, Mavis who is a simmering stew of hatred toward Carmen. Carmen's father died in a tragic auto accident, and Mavis feels that Carmen is responsible.
Carmen is a guidance counselor on the rough side of town at Overland High School and she will do anything to get promoted to Beverly Hills' Talented and Gifted Academy. Carmen manipulates her looks to get what she wants, and when she is nearly raped by the school superintendent, she seeks legal action. Meanwhile, Carmen is devastated by receiving news of a debilitating, disfiguring disease that will destroy her looks. Instead of arranging for surgery, Carmen delays the inevitable until....Twists of fate and magical coincidences occur that change Carmen and the world as Carmen sees it for the benefit of everyone.
For me, Schooling Carmen is a Magical, `Feel-Good' inspiring novel that will touch the hearts of those who read it. It will certainly cause one to stop and reflect on what makes one happy.
