There comes a time in every girl's life when she begins to change into a beautiful young lady.

Bonnie's time was just a year or two sooner than everyone else in her fourth grade class.

Puberty is already a hard enough time without all your friends accusing you of faking it to get attention, or all of the boys in your class staring at you like you were the Eighth Wonder of the World. Couple this with the fact that you were born into a rich Japanese family like Bonnie was, and it can make your last few years of grade school a living hell.

When the Populars came along in junior high, she thought it was her chance to get something back. She had the looks, she had the smarts, and now she'd have her choice of any cute guy in school. She also had to stay on her toes 24/7—trends come and go every day, after all, and in this clique you have to stay current to stay in the limelight. Eventually she fell behind and was even resorting to dirty tricks to keep her good standing, until a badly-timed day home from school with a stomachache put her out of the running for good.

You'd think Bonnie would never in a million years fit in with a gang of social rejects nowhere near as good-looking as she is.

But then again, looks aren't everything.
