In the year 2012, two childhood friends leave the small town of Tunis, Texas, for Los Angeles, with dreams of making it big in Hollywood. Raven Kensington is exquisitely-beautiful, with a trademark, Miss America smile. The African-American beauty is enormously-gifted, but knows that discrimination is still alive and well in Tinseltown. Raven's determined to make her dreams become reality. Once she arrives in Hollywood, no one denies that she's gorgeous, she's just not the right race, or size, for Hollywood. Raven refuses to give up. After years of blood, sweat, and tears, she reluctantly accepts a stereotypical role, that turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Rebecca Simms is a blonde, blue-eyed beauty, with a bright smile. By Hollywood's standards, Becky, is the reflection of beauty. However, Becky's size-eight frame isn't thin enough for Tinseltown. After years of struggling in Hollywood, Becky finally receives her big break, and it's an opportunity of a lifetime. Things are finally looking up for Raven and Becky, when tragedy strikes. One of them will conform to the pressures of Hollywood, and dying to be thin, will cost one of the beauties, her life. Michelle Cole is masterful, as she tells this truly inspiring story, as only she can. It's the story of hopes, dreams, love, friendships, and life's triumphs and tragedies. It's the story of an extraordinary woman, who fought for herself, and for all those, who want to be treated as the beautiful, individual human beings that we all are, not treated as colors, or sizes. F.A.T. CHANCE is a story, that speaks, to everyone!
