If you really stand out, can you ever fit in?
Peyton is a tall girl and has always abided by the Law of Tall Girls, which indicates that no male over 6 ft. shall date a female under 5’8”. There are so few tall guys and they are wasted on short girls. So true! Why should short girls get the tall guys when they have a massive pool of average guys? Yeah!
“Once you go tall, you never go small.”
A $400 bet was that Peyton couldn’t get the hot, tall guy to kiss her. Well, mission accomplished. But then there’s a raise in the stakes. The bet was now $800 to get a tall guy (at least 6’3”) to go on 4 public dates with her with a final date at the prom. Sounds easy enough, if Peyton had any confidence and didn’t feel like a freak show so much.
Being a tall girl, I related to Peyton, especially never finding clothes that fit unless they came from the men’s dept.
This was a pretty good story, but it was lagging at times with a bunch of high school crap. Still, it was interesting reading about Peyton’s quest to find a tall guy (it’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.) At times, I thought Peyton focused too much on her tallness, and I couldn’t get into the Romeo & Juliet plot. Apparently, that was her chance to snag the hot, tall guy she’s wanted all along. The problem was that he was already snatched up by, yep, you guessed it. A short girl!
This was okay.
