Peach Girl Synopsis
The story centers on a normal high school girl but that all her classmates believe that she is an easy girl because she has tanned skin. The real reason for his tan is simply because he is part of the swim team and because his body bronzes so easily. However, she likes a boy who seems to dislike her appearance, which lowers his self-esteem too much and will begin to invest his time in remaking himself in the type of girl he likes.
