About the Book

Kayla never really thought of her double Ds as "problem breasts." It made them sound like children who wouldn't behave.

Kayla Callaway has prima ballerina grace and something else that most ballerinas don't have: a full figure. Her heart is set on a future in dance. Unfortunately, her proportions just got her cast as an ugly stepsister in Florida Arts High School's production of Cinderella. Kayla's disappointment makes her a prime suspect when the dance troupe receives a string of threatening messages.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A protest, a love interest, a rival, refreshing humor, and a protagonist who finds self-acceptance in a judgmental world. This will find a ready audience.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Smart and humorous, negotiating some provocative territory with grace and flair and employing the Cinderella motif with quiet effectiveness.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Engaging. The mystery and its resolution...raise thought-provoking questions about cultural expectations for girls and women.” - Publishers Weekly
