Synopsis

FANCY: Handbags, Heels & Hard Times 

Maribel "Fancy" Alvarez is a trendy socialite who has it all: enviable looks, popularity and a closet full of designer clothing. The Philadelphia beauty lives an amazing life. At least that's what she's led everyone to believe. Fancy goes to great lengths to keep up a façade of perfection, but when a series of unfortunate events rattles her world, everything begins to fall apart. 

She's always been taught to use what she's got to get what she wants but deep down inside Fancy knows there is truly more to her than just a beautiful face and perfect body. Will she abandon the superficial lifestyle she's come to know or succumb to the temptation of the almighty dollar? 

Fancy chronicles the life of a woman torn between the person she is and the person she wants to be. This iconic story will resonate with readers who, like Fancy, have battled issues within, as well as outside influences, while struggling to find themselves amidst a world of chaos.
