Boys and fashion aren't really on Prunella's radar- she has three brothers and her ginormous height and broken nose means surfing is more her thing than fashion. The mean girls at her new school label her 'stork' and 'the Prune'. But when a talent scout for a modeling competition spots Prunella in the crowd, her besties insist she try out. Does Prunella have a shot at the competition? And can she make a new friend in the process?
