Linda Stone barely remembers her mother. But she's about to go from knowing precious little about her to oh-so-blushingly much... What if you just learned that your mother was a famous - or rather infamous - international showgirl? That she wore a tall headdress of rhinestones and peacock feathers. Glittering high-heeled sandals. That she wore sensual whispers of outfits unlike anything you've ever seen: barely there, beautiful and shocking, simultaneously sexual and like something out of a fairy tale. Outfits that gave her the power to become the talk of the town, the queen of Paris, the star of the Folies Bergère...All her life, Linda Stone has felt awkward and out of place-motherless and friendless, long-legged and small-busted, standing head and shoulders taller than her curvy classmates. Then one day a mysterious package arrives, with clues about her mother's past, and about Linda's own future. If her mother could spark passionate fires in hosts of handsome men, what about Linda? Does she dare to break away from her aimless existence and slip on her mother's sparkling shoes, and to dance her own dance?
