A seven-year-old girl is traumatized and scarred after being attacked by a dog.
Her classmates ostracize her and give her the name "Dogface", which continues
to haunt her long after grade school. The alienation and rejection initiate a
lifelong struggle with feelings of inferiority, and a desire to challenge
America's obsession with beauty. Ultimately, Dogface must find a way to reclaim
her self-worth, despite her alleged ugliness.
