Ally Queen is fifteen, flat-chested and totally trapped in a tiny coastal town where the killer pythons are stale and there are only three types of people: bogans, surfies and spinach-munching hippies. How could her parents have ever thought moving to Melros was a good idea?
With her best friend miles away, and deep-and-meaningfuls only as long a text message, it’s a bad time for Ally to be having a personality crisis. She’s torn between who she is and who she wants to be. No wonder she doesn’t have a boyfriend — unless you count the irritating guy on the school bus who seems to be keen on her.
But first impressions can be deceptive.
