Beth Ann is Dot's self-proclaimed best friend. A confidant she's not. Beth adores gossip and loves spreading rumors almost as much as creating them. This grade school mover and shaker is much more interested in climbing the second grade social ladder than the rungs on a playground slide. Beth's impatient and anxious to get old, like say, around twenty so she can start getting face-lifts like her mom. And dad. And pony. Beth Ann leans toward the melodramatic and can't wait 'til school plays turn into Broadway openings. She's practicing writing with both hands. No, not to impress her teacher, but so she'll be able to sign twice as many autographs when she becomes famous.
