Jamie can't stand being pregnant. She can't wait to get on with her normal life and give the baby up for adoption. But her yet-to-be-born daughter, Stella, has a fierce will and a destiny to fulfill. And as the magical plot of "Little Beauties" unfolds, these three characters' lives become linked in ever more surprising ways.
