Ananda is a bigger-than-life pop star, but the paparazzi won't leave her alone and she's tired of being smeared on the Enquirer every month for her drug addiction. After a mental breakdown, she goes home to her old friend Mag, and asks for her help.
Knowing how many pop stars die young, Mag will do anything to help Ananda, including losing her dignity, facing her greatest fears, and uncovering the truth about what happened at the House of Transformation.
A dual storyline portrays the women at their coming of age, when they lived together at a place called the House of Transformation -- a place of art, love, and a terrible tragedy that still haunts them. No one escaped the House of Transformation without scars, some of them worse than others.
Mag does her best to help Ananda get clean, but twists and turns keep wellness outside of arm's reach. With the clock ticking until a contractually obligated Grammy performance, will Ananda have another break down or a breakthrough?
"Debut author Taylor writes with a punchy flair... An entertaining and thoughtful account of loss and artistic ambition." Kirkus Reviews
