Book: The Law of Tall Girls
Author: Joanne MacGregor
When you really stand out, can you ever fit in?
Seventeen-year-old Peyton Lane is a tall girl. So tall, it’s the only thing most people notice about her.
On impulse, she accepts a bet to prove she can be as attractive and desirable as other girls. Now she just needs to go on four dates (including the prom) with one of the guys on her very short list of very tall boys.
Number one on the list is Jay Young – the new guy that Peyton already likes way more than she should. Because not only is Jay already taken, he’s also breaking her Law of Tall Girls, and he’s determined to discover the awful secret she’s been hiding for most of her life.
Funny and romantic, The Law of Tall Girls is a feel-good, heart-warming read for anyone who’s ever felt different, or like they just don’t belong. -Goodreads
Review: This book was adorable. Peyton Lane is tall-really tall. No, she doesn't play basketball. And no, you don't need to keep asking her how tall she is or make comments about it. But teenagers are cruel so she is made fun of for her height often, making her self conscious. It doesn't help that it's almost impossible to find clothes to fit (I'm a woman of average height and I never even thought about the issues tall girls faced). Or find someone taller than you to date.
This was just an adorable book from start to finish. I loved Peyton. While I was initially frustrated with how she treated her mother, but I understood where she was coming from when certain things were explained. I loved Peyton's tenacity and the relationship with her best friend. And I loved how the book ended. Overall, one of the best YA books I've read in awhile.
