High school can be a rough time where most teens spend more than a little time feeling like they are too much and not enough at the same time. This is definitely true for Tall Girl Jodi Kreyman (Ava Michelle). Standing at an above average 6 feet and one and a half inches, Jodi’s main occupation seems to be making herself invisible but a new student at her school ignites her drive to fully be seen once again – or maybe for the first time. Jodi turns to her sister for a make-over and her best friends for more than a few words of encouragement. But, in the end, Jodi discovers the truth of her own strength and beauty by being true to who he has always been.
