(From the publisher):
Izzie, Lucy and TJ crowded round and stared at me, like they were waiting for a circus freak to begin her act. I shook my head.
“You’re going to have to open your mouth sometime,” said Lucy.
“Come on, put your hand down.”
I shook my head.
“It's horrible. I look like a tin opener.”
Nesta is devastated. She has to wear a brace. She thinks that no boy will ever even look at her again without thinking of the killer shark in Jaws. And practising a smile that doesn't show her teeth isn't helping.
There’s only one option – to become a recluse.
Lucy, Izzie and TJ try to help her understand that her looks haven’t changed, and anyway, it’s her bubbly personality that counts. But Nesta’s not convinced.
Things change, however, when she meets Luke, who not only restores her confidence in her pulling power, but also introduces her to a whole new side of her personality.
