Eleven-year-old Alice Duncan has a problem: growing at a breathtaking pace, her body has taken on a mysterious life of its own. Heads turn whenever Alice leaves the house. Men are magnetized by the two huge, round globes that have sprouted from her chest. They force passersby to stare, not at Alice, but at THE BREASTS. Full figured and long legged, Alice towers over her teachers. In school, with kids her own age, she is ridiculed. They call her Stacked. They call her Gigantor. They make noises behind her back. But on the sidewalks of 1970s NYC, Alice is popular. Her aunt's boyfriend, Rabbit, says she's gorgeous. Even Crash Omaha, a rock star, tears off his motorcycle boots and climbs into her shower stall. When Alice is shipped off to the Balthus Institute, an exclusive art school in the mountains, she throws herself headlong into the grittu, seductive glamour of the '70s art world. There, she meets a charismatic man named J.D. He is amoral, charming-and possibly, an outlaw.
