Synopsis (Goodreads)
A chance at the ultimate makeover means deadly consequences… Aislyn suffers from crippling shyness – that is, until she’s offered a dose of Charisma, an underground gene therapy drug guaranteed to make her shine. The effects are instant. She’s charming, vivacious, and popular. But strangely, so are some other kids she knows. The media goes into a frenzy when the disease turns contagious, and then deadly, and the doctor who gave it to them disappears. Aislyn must find a way to stop it, before it’s too late.

Yet another book with a pretty cover, an interesting synopsis, but then it really falls short when it comes to delivering the story.

I found it really hard to connect to any of the characters, and while the book held my interest long enough for me to finish it, I found myself getting distracted easily, and flicking ahead to find an interesting part.

Again, this was a book I really wanted to enjoy but, to put it simply, I didn’t.
