Carmen Duprè, is a self absorbed and selfish woman, with some bigoted and seemingly heartless tendencies. It is easy to hate her from the start of the book. However, when Carmen is forced to face what, in her eyes, may be a possibly grim reality, she finds that there are more important things in life than looks. The book follows Carmen's transformation.
The author, Kathleen Cross, touches on many topics and addresses most of them fairly well in this intelligently written book. There are themes of race/ethnicity, family, appearances, bigotry, friendship, breast cancer, love, rape, and more.
The only issue that I had with this book is that I was never convinced by the romance angle of it. It never felt natural or fully developed. The two characters involved never really meshed.
Nevertheless, this is still a great read. I highly recommend it, even if you pay full price. I may go back and read Skin Deep now because of this book.

Kathleen Cross mixes unexpected characters and circumstances that makes this a truly delightful read.
