Emily blames her MIA, giantess mother, Marilyn, for her excessive height and embarks on a mom-quest
At six feet tall, Emily Lucas towers over the "normals" in her Seattle high school. When she discovers, thanks to a pediatric endocrinologist and his X-ray machine, that she's still growing and will likely hit six foot three, she struggles with her inability to blend.
Emily blames her MIA, giantess mother, Marilyn, for her excessive height and embarks on a mom-quest to find her. So begins a journey that leads Emily to Arizona to meet her birth mother.
Then there's Emily's ex-best-friend-gone-wild, Trix. She has an attitude that won't quit, two non-parents who don't take care of her as much as she takes care of them, and a tendency to hook up with too many guys in her search for acceptance.
When she finds out she has a chance to graduate early and study her passion-fashion design-at The Art Institute, she realizes she needs to pull herself out of her downward spiral and focus on her goal. But she might already be too far gone.
Emily and Trix, who have grown apart but whose lives still wind around each other like helices, work separately to figure out how to fit into a world that doesn't much like girls who can't, or won't, conform to what's ordinary.
