Life Size Plot
In “Life-Size,” the story revolves around Casey Stuart, a tomboyish girl who plays quarterback for her school’s 7th-grade football team. After her mother’s passing, Casey becomes distant from her old friends and often clashes with a teammate. In her longing to bring her mother back, Casey discovers a book called “The Book of Awakenings” at a local bookstore. This book holds the secret to resurrecting the dead, with the effect becoming permanent unless reversed before sunset on the fourth day.
However, faced with the book’s high price, Casey leaves all her money on the shelf where the book is placed in a glass compartment. Following the book’s instructions, Casey gathers her mother’s belongings, including locks of hair from her hairbrush. Unintentionally, the spell goes awry when Drew McDonald, who works with and is interested in Casey’s widowed father, gives her an Eve doll as a birthday gift. As Drew brushes the doll’s hair with strands remaining on the brush, Casey inadvertently invokes the magic on the doll instead of her mother. The next morning, Casey finds the Eve doll transformed into a full-size human named Eve.
Over the next few days, Eve experiences life as a real woman, embracing new experiences and helping Casey deal with her loss. She brings positive changes to people around her, including Casey’s father’s coworker, Ellen. Despite initial tensions between Casey and Eve, they gradually become friends, with Eve offering valuable insights and support to Casey. In turn, Casey guides Eve on being a popular doll and a good role model.
As the story unfolds, Casey realizes she needs the second volume of the magic book to reverse the spell. However, she forms a deep bond with Eve and decides against purchasing the book when it finally arrives at the bookstore. Unfortunately, homesickness and difficulties in adjusting to human life lead Eve to choose to undo the spell herself. Tearfully bidding farewell to Casey and her father, she transforms back into a doll at Marathon headquarters.
