Jodi Kreyman is sixteen years old and 6 ft 1 in (1. 85 m) tall. She has been unusually tall since she was three, a source of insecurity for her, not helped by her dad's worry that her height is a medical risk. Students continually ask Jodi "how's the weather up there?", eventually causing Jodi's friend Fareeda to snap at one boy. Contrastingly, Jodi's older sister Harper is of average height and a winner of multiple beauty pageants. A boy in Jodi's class who always carries a milk crate, Dunkleman, frequently asks her out, but she is reluctant to date somebody she has known for so long, or someone shorter than her.
