Synopsis

Meet me, Lily B.,
Aspiring Writer
Extraordinaire:

Likes: Recording daily events in my journal (which will be widely read and praised when I become famous)

Dislikes: Family Outings, people who make their own beds in hotels (read: MY MOTHER), and most of the items in my closet as they are all incredibly uncool

Summer Plans: Since my best friend, Charlotte, abandoned me to attend Young Executive Camp, I figured I was doomed for a vacation of boredom and Family Outings. But something exciting has happened! I met the coolest girl, Karma, and her incredibly cool family, the LeBlancs. And guess what? We're related! This summer is looking up, my friends, and I think I just might be on the brink of cool. . . .
