In turn, Becca tries to instill a sense of being oneself to her fourth grade students, who sometimes try to be someone who they aren't in celebrity or model idolization.

Lyrics

I was wondering if anyone knows how to get the lyrics Beautiful Girl? I have searched online and have not found anything.

If anyone has any ideas on where to get them or if you know them that would be great. I think it is just a great song. I k now it is written by Deborah Gibson, but i can't find the lyrics.

I appreciate all the help.

I also think this is a great movie with a great message for anyone who watches it. Just knowing we are beautiful know matter how we look or what we weigh.

Thanks again for all the help.
