Publisher's Summary

She's a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway "accident" leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she is transformed from the beautiful center of attention to an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better - and that salvation hides in the last places you'll ever want to look.

not for me

I didn't identify or have any empathy for the main characters, I just did'n't like or care about them. I should have realized this by reading the synopsis but I did get the impression it was going to be removed from a typical sex change diva and his best girl type drama. Suffice to say it wasn't and I got the feeling the author was trying to shock us by attacking that fake plastic world that the model lives in, and it's not a viewpoint that I have an interest in or care for.
