So when she's diagnosed with scoliosis - curvature of the spine - Deenie's almost relieved. No more traipsing round modelling agencies, no more living up to her mother's expectations. But she has to wear an ugly, uncomfortable back brace for the next four years. And she's convinced that it will put an end to normal teenage life - including her blossoming relationship with Buddy Brader . . .
