Overview

Nancy Stancill shot up to six feet as a shy young teenager and was alternately bullied and ignored because of her height. This wasn't uncommon for girls growing up in the 1960s, when men considered tall women undesirable. She details how one woman had bone cut from her thighs to lose a couple of inches of height and others took hormones as preteens to stunt their growth. Stancill's life began changing at the University of North Carolina and she came into her own as an investigative reporter in Houston and Charlotte, NC. After a failed engagement and another serious boyfriend, she meets the man of her dreams, who is two inches shorter. She marries him anyway.
