Sarah Johnson is a high school junior with an overactive imagination, has a clueless mother, loves Shakespeare, and obsesses over boys. In all other ways, she is completely normal . . . until an enchantress bestows upon Sarah a mystical gift: a golden corset. The golden corset transforms Sarah overnight into a blonde model of a girl. Initially thrilled with her new body, Sarah is quickly forced to confront problems she'd never considered. How will her family react? Will her beauty earn her the social life she's always dreamed of? Will her crush finally notice her? How will she handle the wanted—and unwanted—attention she receives?
Journey with Sarah through themes of identity, stereotypes, harassment, gender, friendship, and self-worth. Laugh at Sarah's theatrical inner dialogues, and learn with every plot twist what beauty does to the eyes of the beheld.
