Join Mira on her journey to four different altars in this sharp-witted story of family, friendship and embracing your true self, no matter what you're forced to wear.

Mira is fourteen and in the last year she's been mugged by puberty. She's grown six inches, expanded in all directions, her breasts are out of control, and she's prone to random eruptions of spots.

Life already feels like a nightmare and now she's been asked to act as a bridesmaid for her four siblings. Four weddings and four bridesmaid dresses - could things get any worse?

Of course they could. Her brother is getting married to brittle, beautiful Stella, whose sister Tiffany is Mira's nemesis at school. Tiffany is the other bridesmaid and the pink satin dress they've chosen makes Mira feel like an oversized sausage.

Join Mira on her excruciating but hilarious journey to four different altars in a story about family, friendship and finding your true self, no matter what you're forced to wear ...
