Chuck Palaniuk's Invisible Monsters is about a catwalk model who has it all. Career, boyfriend, friends. She gets into a terrible accident which leaves her terribly disfigured and kind of warped. She meets a "lady" Brandy Alexander, who's One operation shy of actually being a lady. Brandy Teaches her to reinvent herself, forget about her past and make something better up. She ends up trying to get revenge on her best friend and fiance and learning things about Brandy Alexander that she never weanted to know.
This story is FAR from heartwarming. But, if you have warped sense of humor and are the kind of person who can wait it out for a suspenseful ending. You really need to read this. Its only 297 pages long. It took me 3 days to read. (lots of interruptions- dont judge!) Palaniuk also wrote Fight Club, which was made into a movie. Brad Pitt anyone? and Choke. I haven't read either one, but I think I might now.
Next on my reading list:

She's Come Undone
The Beetle and The Bard
Eat Pray love
and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy
As you can see... I am soooooo Far behind.
