Jennifer Morgan had always been gorgeous. Men were enchanted by her beauty, not by her brains, and she eagerly took things from them: her high school diploma, her undemanding job, even her expensive car. Now, thanks to an out-of-control virus, she is forced to trade. The infection devours her beauty as it develops her brain.
As her life spins out of control, so do events in the lab that created the virus. Jennifer must fight to reconstruct her relationships with family and friends as her brain reconstructs itself. Meanwhile, researchers struggle to unlock the potential of a virus that has the capacity to maim, but also to cure.
Is the high-stakes game of finding happiness as dangerous — even as deadly — as the high-stakes game of cutting-edge science? Infectious Beauty explores the inner confines of the brain research laboratory — and the inner confusion of the brain of a 32 year old woman who is in the process of being reborn.
The problem is I don't care a fig about Jennifer Morgan. In fact I probably hope she is required to wear a veil for the rest of her life. Someone who has slid by on her looks is boring as cheeze whiz to me. You need something about her that makes her likable.
Plus...she's ugly...so what?? There's no substance here.
