Plain Jane lived her young life in a world of beige and grey. She was a shy, nondescript girl from a family of little means. There wasn't money for new clothes or pretty things; she wore mostly hand-me-downs, and kept herself out of the way. But hidden beneath that drab exterior was a bright mind and thirst for learning, and when Plain Jane graduated she won a full-ride scholarship to a big city college far away. Folks in the small town where she grew up expected her to be back home within a few months, unable to get used to city life... but they were wrong. In the company of new friends at her college dorm, Plain Jane's life began to blossom - she smiled more, talked more, and laughed a whole lot more. She discovered the fun of make-up, hair coloring, and shopping for clothes. Her family knew the transformation was complete when she came home for Christmas with a whole collection of brightly colored fuzzy socks. Even her mama had to smile. Plain Jane was gone forever, and it was clear that this new girl who had replaced her was going to be a bright and shining star!
