'Watch out, world. Here I come!'
For Victoria Dawson, growing up isn't a happy experience. Born to picture-perfect parents, she never feels pretty enough. But when her parents have a second child, Victoria is thrilled - she can't help but adore her new baby sister Gracie. And her parents finally have the perfect daughter they always wanted. Meanwhile Victoria still never seems to get it quite right - she battles with her weight, she's told she'll never find a man if she's too clever, and the one career she feels passionate about her parents don't approve of.
And so Victoria decides to move to New York to fulfil her dreams and escape her family. Though her new life is exciting, the old temptations remain, and she continues to wage war with the scales.
Can Victoria find a life far from the hurt and neglect of her childhood, embrace the courage to find freedom, and become who she really is at last?
