Cover of PUTTING MAKEUP ON THE FAT BOY by Bil Wright

BOOK JACKET BLURB: Carlos Duarte knows that he’s fabulous.

He’s got a better sense of style that half the fashionistas in New York City, and he can definitely apply makeup like nobody’s business. He may only be in high school, but when he lands the job of his dreams—makeup artist at the FeatureFace counter in Macy’s—he’s sure that he’s finally on his way to great things.

But the makeup artist world is competitive and cutthroat, and Carlos encounters bigger hurdles than he ever expected. The chance of hitting the big time is so close Carlos can almost taste it—but can he believe in himself to make it to the top?
