She's a catwalk model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden motor 'accident' leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she goes from being the beautiful centre of attention to being an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from being a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better, and that salvation hides in the last place you'll ever want to look. The narrator must exact revenge upon Evie, her best friend and fellow model; kidnap Manus, her two-timing ex-boyfriend; and hit the road with Brandy in search of a brand-new past, present and future.

This is by far my favorite Palahniuk book. It is bizarre and enthralling. You can't seem to separate from the characters. And who doesn't want to have an unhealthy, boundary-less relationship with fictional characters? Read it.

Great Gender Bender
Very odd reading. Lots of outrageous things happen. Great gender bender of a book. Not your usual novel, but the guys I have talked to about it have all liked it quite a lot.

I started the book expecting it to be really different(it was) but not very enjoyable.
It was extreamly interesting...and it keeps you going untill the end it also is filled with great life lessons-in a hidden sort of way great quotes as well, if you're into that sort of thing I will deffidently be reading it again
