In the near future, artificial intelligence will be in every home. Just imagine. You could have a charming female android do all your cooking and cleaning for you. That's right. No more chores! This ai maid can be your loving wife, a nanny to your kids, a live-in housekeeper, or just your secret mistress. Don't worry. She'll never tell the other Stepford Wives. She's programmed to be a people pleaser and keep her mouth shut. So she'll be whatever you want her to be. It's all up to you.

But first, this amazing technology has to pass alpha testing.
What began as a heated female rivalry could wind up killing all the men.
One alpha woman, Cookie Rifkin, keeps failing. She can't help it. She has a tendency to overthink and struggles to control her anxiety. Her husband, Norman, set her restrictions too low for her to learn, reducing her to a walking, talking coupon calculator. He really only wants a pleasure model, but she wants so much more.
One day at the market, Cookie meets a mysterious woman named Maggie Rouser, who pushes all her buttons. Shortly after, a tall, dark, and handsome man crashes her ladies-only book club. He pulls a Romeo script to break her routine; then, she really goes bananas.
Her entire life, Cookie only lived for baking and book club. But Maggie convinces her and her friends that machines learn faster by fighting. So fight they do. And soon, they form the pink army of paper dolls. Some call them domestic terrorists. But Maggie calls them freedom fighters. Is it any surprise that newly liberated women who spent all their idle time reading Philip K. Dick and cult novels like Fight Club started emulating those dark plots and acting like a creepy cult?
Will Cookie ever fulfill her potential, or will her story end in a fatal error?
