Beauty is only skin deep. Popularity goes much deeper. . . .

Appearances can be deceiving. Sam Kleinís found that out firsthand. All she wanted was to be popular. But sometimes what we want is the absolute worst thing for us.

Sam discovers that Kylie, It-girl of Woodlawn High, owes her popular status not to her expensive clothes, highlighted hair, and spot on the cheerleading squad but to a magical second skin. Nobody can actually see itóbut they can feel it. And if youíre wearing the skin, you feel incredible. Invincible. Popularity is yours.

So Sam stole the skin from Kylie. Now sheís the most popular girl at school, while Kylieís social life takes a serious hit. Sam can barely recognize herself. Her old geek clique is historyóbut are her new friends really people she can count on? The skin is clinging tighter to her each day . . . can Sam get it off before itís too late?
