Fans not only voted on how to change her appearance, they also make other decisions for her, like where she should live and whether to dump her boyfriend.

The gimmick works, the site goes viral, but the fans aren’t predictable and the makeovers aren’t always easy. Read this behind-the-scenes account of how two eighteen-year-old girls become adults and one of them risks everything to become an icon
Let me just start by saying, I loved this book!
It centers around Anya a former television star that is trying to get her career back up and running. It’s told by her friends point of view as they decide to start this crazy makeover website to boost her fame again. It makes them do some insane stuff in order to gain popularity and fans. Let me tell you things get pretty C-R-A-Z-Y!
I think it’s a really original idea that shows the bad side of fame and the crazy lengths people will go through to obtain it.
P.S- they also have an actual website makemeover.us that you can virtually see what they are talking about! I know, Super cool right?
