Justina Chen Headley - Girl ​Overboard
Everybody ​thinks Syrah is the golden girl. After all, her father is Ethan Cheng, billionaire, and she has everything any kid could possibly desire: a waterfront mansion, jet plane, and custom-designed snowboards. But most of what glitters in her life is fool's gold. Her half-siblings hate her, her best friend's girlfriend is ruining their friendship, and her own so-called boyfriend is only after her for her father's name. When her broken heart results in a snowboarding accident that exiles her from the mountains-the one place where she feels free and accepted for who she is, not what she has-can Syrah rehab both her busted-up knee, "and" her broken heart? Justina Chen Headley writes with an engaging wit and a powerful, distinct voice. Her first novel, "Nothing But the Truth (and a few white lies) "was a Border's Original Voices nominee, a Book Sense pick, and received a starred review from "Publisher's Weekly: ""Headley makes an impressive debut with this witty, intimate novel."""""

Justina Chen Headley - North ​of Beautiful (angol)
Terra's ​body is very nearly perfect, except for the port-wine birthmark on her left cheek, which several surgeries have failed to remove. It is the teen's final semester of high school and she looks forward to college where she can study art and escape from her bullying, verbally abusive father. Over the Christmas holidays, Terra and her mother get into a car accident and meet Jacob, a Goth Chinese boy with a cleft lip, and his adoptive mother. The women immediately strike up a supportive friendship, while Terra and Jacob grow close. When Terra's brother, who lives in Shanghai, sends her and her mother tickets to visit, and Jacob's mother wants to try to track down Jacob's birth mother, they decide to travel together. But what about Erik, Terra's enamored but slightly clueless boyfriend? Headley's ambitious novel is written in a beautifully crafted style that flows seamlessly. The pace is somewhat bogged down in the first half but it quickens when the characters travel to China, where Jacob, Terra, and their mothers begin to confront their insecurities. Terra and Jacob are flawed, complex, and memorable characters. The message that true beauty and strength come from within is dominant, but this is also a moving and satisfying story in its own right.

Justina Chen Headley - North ​of Beautiful - Iránytű Önmagamhoz
Magas, ​szőke, és tökéletes az alakja. De aki jobban szemügyre veszi az arcát, az már csak arra figyel, hogy valami nincs rendben vele. Terra titokban azt tervezi, hogy elköltözik a nyomasztó, észak-nyugati kisvárosból a keleti partra, és ott tanul tovább, de zsarnoki apja ezt nem támogatja. Ám egy váratlan ütközés az útjába sodorja Jacobot, a jóképű, de furcsa goth fiút, akinek hatására megváltoznak magáról és az életről alkotott elképzelései. A gondosan eltervezett jövő képének megszűnése után, vajon megtalálja-e Terra a saját útját? A díjnyertes írónő, Justina Chen Headley fordulatos, művészien megírt és tanulságos regényt alkotott egy széthulló családról, szerelemről, utazásról, és arról, mi is a szépség valójában.
