From the author of Girlfriends and The Way It Is comes a no—holds—barred look at America's plastic surgery obsession through three heartrending, hilarious, and very real friends...

Brenda Harrison has never been a slave to vanity and was never too concerned about the ill effects time and motherhood have had on her thirty—something body. But when she suspects that her husband may be cheating on her, Brenda has second thoughts about growing old gracefully...

Nora Perez has always enjoyed her life of late—night club—hopping, man—juggling, and just being fabulous. But as her fortieth birthday approaches, the men have started looking past her. Now Nora's booking an appointment with a plastic surgeon.

But along the way, they may just learn a few lessons about the real cost of plastic surgery and what it really means to be beautiful.
