Your name is Karen Zhao, and you’ve just been signed up by your parents for a beauty pageant. You’re not ready, not even close, but you don’t have a choice. But perhaps you can make the best of it. Maybe it’s the one opportunity to make a “hook” for your college application. Maybe you can reinvent yourself, get rid your anxiety and become someone new. Or maybe you can find true love (or some approximation thereof).

The story is incomplete; it's probably around 80-90% done, at 60k words or so. The events after week 9 might be incomplete and unimplemented or stop abruptly.

Excellently written, and painfully relatable! I was really attached to all the main characters by the end, I hope they all end up okay ><

I was fairly happy with what I got, but definitely want to replay it and try out the other options too!
