‘Up at the top the lights are still flashing and the queue is even bigger and all around me there are girls much taller than me, much prettier than me, much much much thinner than me.’
Magda is tall and glamorous, but she’s worried that her appearance is giving guys the wrong idea.
Nadine is willowy and gothic – she wants to be a model, but the industry is unforgiving.
And Ellie…well, Ellie is convinced she’s fat.
The pressure is on for the girls to change the way they look – but can they learn to love themselves the way they are?
