Skinny, awkward, and plain ugly. That's what most people would describe Eva Farrow, a 15 year old girl yearning to be accepted and loved by her family, peers, and most of all: her best friend Vincent Parker. Unfortunately for Eva, Vince has already fallen head over heels for the beautiful brunette, Lissa Fox--who also happens to be Eva's tormentor. 
After witnessing the boy she loves asking her nemesis to be his date to Ball Night, Eva decides to ditch school and run away. She dashes through the woods near her neighborhood and comes across a small cabin she had never seen before. Inside, is a strange old ghastly woman who agrees to give Eva just what she wants: beauty and love, but for a price. 
Eva accepts, thinking the lady just wants her money, but she soon realizes exactly what she had bargained for...and it's anything but pretty.

** my theory** 
                              Lissa is actually an ugly donkey. She wears eyeshadow to cover it up.
