Girls try to raise the most money of any group at the school fundraiser. They compete against a group of girls who are not nice to them- this group pretends that their rum cupcakes have alcohol in them and they get in trouble for promoting alcohol. A lot of juvenille boy/ girl- does he like me? do I like him? do I want him to dance with me at the school dance? flirting, etc. Girl very into wearing "lucky" clothing to bring her good luck. Girl is worried since her grandmother needs heart surgery. A lot of internet use, TV, movies.Mentions of divorced parents and if girl likes going from one to the other.
gross, freaked out, weird, funky, supercreeepy
