Next…. a story about a girl trying to forge her way and express herself in the stifling, bureaucratic, restrictive dystopia known as the American middle school. When she wears her brand new flashy outfit to school one day, (an outfit she bought with 8th grade birthday money), it lands her in the principals office. At that point, there's only one person who can save her…. and Mom is coming in with a bad attitude.
Margot Leitman is a storyteller, comedian, writer and teacher based in Los Angeles.
