'Watch out, world. Here I come'! For Victoria Dawson, growing up isn't a happy
experience. Born to picture-perfect parents, she never feels pretty enough to
meet their expectations. But when her parents have a second child, Victoria is
thrilled - she can't help but adore her new baby sister Gracie. And since Gracie
is the image of them, her parents finally have the perfect daughter they always
wanted. Meanwhile Victoria still never seems to get it quite right - she battles
with her weight, she's told she'll never find a man if she's too clever, and the
one career she feels passionate about her parents don't approve of. And so
Victoria decides to move to New York to fulfil her dreams and escape her family.
Though her new life is exciting, the old temptations remain, and she continues
to wage war with the scales. Victoria struggles to find a life far from the hurt
and neglect of her childhood, the damage created by her parents, the courage to
find freedom, and become who she really is at last.

At her Long Island cottage Stephanie embarked upon a bizarre and hilarious adventure beyond her wildest dreams.

Calling himself Paul Klone, this wild, uninhibited creature isn’t remotely like Peter except for his identically sexy good looks.
