But after two years of dating heartthrob Dominic Hudson, she decides she’s ready for that next step—at least, mentally. Her body, on the other hand, won’t let her go through with it, no matter how hard she tries. And Dom, tired of waiting, breaks up with her.To win him back, Monique concocts a plan to fix her body. She teams up with straitlaced church girl Sasha—who is surprisingly knowledgeable about Monique’s condition—as well as Reggie, the misunderstood bad boy who always makes a ruckus at church. Together they embark upon a top-secret search for the cure.While on their quest, Monique discovers the value of a true friend and the wonders of a love that accepts her for who she is. Despite everyone’s opinions about her virtue, she learns to live for herself, inspiring us all to reclaim our bodies and unapologetically love ourselves.
