Poor, plain Dee Crenshaw was forced into a transformation by her friends and family. She was whisked off to California for the TV makeover show, Cinderella Extreme. The plastic surgery was a smashing success, changing far more than just her skin. She discovered herself, from the inside out, and with it she found a new life. She shed her unattractiveness, but found it much more difficult to shed her dangerous and abusive husband. It is a profound adventure, hiding, thinking, plotting, and planning. She and her friend, Audrey, have only one goal - stay safe.
