It's the story of Truly Plaice, a solid girl who grows up to be a solid woman. She's not exactly a giant, but she's taller and bigger than most men. And she's ugly (that's not my word; that's how the author describes her). Her sister, Serena Jane, on the other hand is small and beautiful.
The other night, while reading along, I was thrilled to come across this lint phrase:
"Really, Truly," Serena Jane said, flicking a piece of lint off her cardigan, bored with my fantasies, "you might at least acknowledge that you're female."
Have you read this book? I highly recommend it.
