DEEPLY SHALLOW AND REALLY FAKE

"deeply shallow and really fake" follows violet, a smart, anti-establishment, hipster teen who is forced to make her "debut" in the high gloss, high stakes dallas debutante society so that her mother and step-father will pay for college. needless to say, complications arise as she struggles to navigate through the anachronistic world of dallas' high society -- juggling men, manners and jimmy choo mules.
