But her parents are bound to welcome her, shower her with affection, and roll out the fatted calf in the form of finance for her next great escape. Arenít they? But somethingís changed in the perfect suburban household. Someoneís sleeping in her bed and taking her place at table. The impossible has happened: her big brother James has been bewitched by a white-trash golden girl in red marabou-topped slippers. Worse, everyone loves her. Ellenís been usurped by a junk food fan called April. Other dilemmas complicate matters. Ellenís desires the elusive- and dangerous- Fredericks, who refused to give her the time of day. She craves career satisfaction but lacks the drive. She longs for James to resume his role in her life as best friend. But above all, she wants her place in the family back0 and that means getting rid of her rival. While Aprilís popularity soars, Ellen grits her teeth and plots her downfall. Itís not simple, April might not have had the benefits of an expensive education but when it comes to family, sheís an expert- more than can be said for Ellen, who is too busy looking for the enemy to see that people are not always what they seems.
