New York : William Morrow, [2023].


"Bianca Bridge has always dreamed of becoming a writer. But Trididadian society can be unforgiving, and having an affair with a married government official is a surefire way to ruin your prospects. So when Obadiah Cortland, a notoriously tyrannical entrepreneur in the island's beauty scene, offers her a job, Bianca accepts, realizing that working on his magazine is the closest to her dreams she'll get. As Bianca begins to embrace her power and creative voice, she starts to suspect Obadiah is not the elite tyrant he seems. She's right. Born in one of the poorest parts of Trinidad, Obadiah has clawed part-way up society's ladder and built his company around his meticulously crafted persona. Now he's not about to let anyone, especially Bianca, see past his facade. When Bianca's ex-lover threatens everything she's rebuilt, jeopardizing all she's come to love about her new life, she's surprised to find support from the most unlikely ally and, finally, draws the strength to fight back like her mother taught her. Sharp witted and fiercely fun, The God of Good Looks alternates between Bianca's diary entries and Obadiah's first person narrative to portray modern Trinidad's rigid class barriers and the fraught impact of beauty commodification. Boisterous, moving, and full of meaty, universally relatable questions, Mc Ivor's sparking debut is an openhearted awakening tale about prejudice and pride, the masks we wear, and who we can become if we dare to take them off"--Jacket.
