    at whom

    Please, is the following sentence correct?

    The pretty young girl in front of you at whom everybody is looking is the writer's daughter.

    Thanks.

    Re: at whom

    With at corrected, your sentence is grammatically correct. But it does not sound very natural. Whom is little used nowadays. More natural would be:

    The pretty young girl in front of you who everybody is looking at is the writer's daughter.
