Until ninth grade, Greer Walsh's body was acceptable. Then her bustline grew. And grew. Now a sophomore, she's a 32H who hides Mavis and Maude (her "girls") with an oversize sweatshirt and slumped posture. She thinks of boys solely as a source of snickers and taunts, until she meets transfer student Jackson Oates, who begins to dominate her thoughts. Little does she know that Jackson feels the same about her. Greer also finds unexpected acceptance in JV volleyball, where her teammates become supportive friends who want her to succeedâdespite having to be strapped into a Stabilizer, a heavy-duty brand of sports bra. After being pushed once too often, Greer finally finds her voice and learns to stand tall. Zimmermann's debut is both insightful and humorous, owing to a bright and funny yet self-deprecating narrator matched with brief chapters that capture Greer's urgencies and insecurities. Girls who lament not having the perfect body will appreciate this novel, and girls who value their best friends will relate without hesitation. Rise up for girl power! Grades 7-12.
