Lisbeth Anne Wachowicz of South End Montclair, New Jersey comes from a broken home in the land of tube tops, frosted lip-gloss, juiceheads, hoop earrings and “the shore.” She has a circle of friends who have dedicated their teenage lives to relieve the world of all its alcohol one drink at a time. Lisbeth’s only salvation, her addiction, her jam, her fix is Audrey Hepburn. She’s watched all her movies and knows every line by heart. When she has the opportunity to secretly try on Audrey’s iconic Givenchy and pass as an ingenue at a Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, she is transformed. She becomes who she wants to be by pretending to be somebody she’s not and living among the young and privileged Manhattan elite. Soon she’s faced with choices that she could never imagine making — between who she’s become and who she once was.The Jersey Shore meets Gossip Girl in a thoroughly original Cinderella story crammed full of everything Audrey. And it all begins with that little black dress…
