Quick-witted 24-year-old office worker Allyson Smart is the perfect woman -- in her dreams. In real life, Ally has to deal with the clumsiness of her size-16 body, the good intentions of her over-achiever best-friend, and the condescending attitude of her too-cool little sister. Ally strives for the kind of unachievable perfection she has in her fantasies: amazing body, clever come-backs, and passionate romances. But when the fantasized version of herself shows up in her bathroom mirror, calling herself Allison (with an i because she says it’s prettier), Ally discovers how cruel perfection can be. The fantasy girl wants to become real, and when perfection walks the streets of Ally’s small LA-suburb hometown, the resulting ripple effect damages the lives of everyone Ally loves. In order to save her friends (and stop her own descent into a fantasy life no real person could survive) Ally must find the courage to overcome perfection and accept herself the way she is.
