Most chicklit characters undergo a transformation from start to finish of the book but for some a physical change is the crux of the story. A makeover takes place, where the character chooses - or is forced - to look different. Just like the fairytale of the ugly duckling becoming a swan, the characters may go from fat to fabulous, from shy to assertive, from nerdy to trendy. And usually along the way they boost their self-confidence so they get their man, their job . . . whatever it is that they think they want.
