Jazz's New Beginning
Jasmine Wakefield-Burkitt is only 3'11" tall but she has never let her disability get in the way of her goals. At the age of sixteen, Jazz has decided to move out of her family home to live at Llysfasi College in North Wales, where she will be studying animal welfare.
Her mother Bev is four inches shorter than Jazz and at 3'7", she is the only person who truly understands her. For sixteen years Jazz and Bev have been inseparable and when Jazz was bullied at the age of thirteen, Bev began to home school her.
In moving out, Jazz is becoming more independent but how will Bev cope with her little girl becoming a woman? This four-part series follows Jazz as a small teen in an even bigger world. She will build a relationship with her father for the first time, learn to drive, fall in love, go to do work experience in Ameria on her own and face losing one of the most important people in her life.
