What a Pretty Girl is the story of a seventeen year old who reflects on how her life suddenly changed after she grew breasts.
‘Pre breasts – I possessed exactly the same face and long auburn hair and skin as white as a rabbit’s, with a body shaped like a board. Yes, life became an unpleasant experience the day I grew breasts. That’s when I became an object worth noting. That’s when boys thought nothing of grabbing ahold of my breasts and grown men with beard stubble began looking in my direction’.
Our heroine’s only friend is the weeping willow tree who philosophizes on the meaning of life and gives her the courage to pursue her own dreams. The story is told in a comic pathos style with a touch of poignancy thrown in so the reader can feel the perplexity of our heroine who suffers with the dilemma of not fitting comfortably in her new body.
