In the heart of New York City, a group of artistic friends struggles with society's standards of beauty. At the center are Barb and Lily, two women at opposite ends of the beauty spectrum, but with the same problem: each fears she will never find a love that can overcome her looks. Barb, a stunningly beautiful costume designer, makes herself ugly in hopes of finding true love. Meanwhile, her friend Lily, a brilliantly talented but plain-looking musician, goes to fantastic lengths to attract the man who has rejected her with results that are as touching as they are transformative. To complicate matters, Barb and Lily discover that they may have a murderer in their midst, that Barb s calm disposition is more dangerously provocative than her beauty ever was, and that Lily's musical talents are more powerful than anyone could have imagined.

What is this book...? It tried to be a rom-com, sci-fi and murder mystery at the same time. None of them worked.

Poorly executed. Full of errors and inconsistencies. Author didn't appear to have any grasp on the subjects explored, or how to write in an intelligent, engaging manner.

So unique, a deep look of the way we look at things through a satirical set of mystical glasses. Unlike anything I've ever read, if you like to take your imagination on a ride, check this book out!
