A brilliantly funny and wonderfully warm-hearted story about love,
family, and what it means to be different. Sydney thinks her mum
Amy is the best mum in the world - even if she is a bit different.
When everyone else kept growing, Amy got to four feet tall and then
stopped right there. The perfect height, in Sydney's opinion: big
enough to reach the ice cream at the supermarket, small enough to
be special. Sydney's dad died when she was only five, but her
memories of him, her mum's love and the company of her brave big
sister Jade means she never feels alone . . . But when the family
are forced to move house, things get tricky. Sydney and Jade must
make new friends, deal with the bullies at their new school and
generally figure out the business of growing up in a strange new
town. And Sydney doesn't want to grow up - not if it means getting
bigger than her mum...
