My life would be perfect, if only I was just like ___.
15 February 2010 | by (the Bay Area) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a girl who is unhappy with her looks (and lack of friends in school). She sees a knock-out new boy in school, but he doesn't seem interested in her. One day her fairy god-brother shows up (asian, with a black leather jacket).

He tries to convince her that she is fine just the way she is (fat chance). Then, he allows her to choose different lifestyles. One is a pre-Supermodel. She wakes up, to find an hour of makeup awaiting her. She melds into the model crowd (not eating anything, acting underwhelmed, ...). She hits on the new guy, but he is not interested in the New her.

Day by day, she joins a new clique, to excite the new guy.
