Ted is 15, and ... oh yes ... tall.

When she's spotted by a model agency, she can't believe it.

At the same time, Ted's fashionista sister, Ava, is diagnosed with cancer. With her world turned upside down, Ted has a lot of growing up to do, some of it in five-inch platforms.

From the award-winning author of the THREADS series comes a bittersweet story about looking beyond what’s skin-deep and two sisters brought together by love and looks, Burberry and baldness.
