Name: Abby
Hometown: Westchester, NY
Age: 11
Favorite show: Full House


Abby is about to finish fifth grade and embark on that rather bewildering and disagreeable period of life known as middle school. But she’s a clever kid, one that easily meets the jibes of her older siblings with sassy retorts and a quick smile. She loves drawing and playing with her two cats and her mammoth of a golden retriever. To my terrible embarrassment, Abby can beat me at any card game (let’s not dwell on the fact that she’s half my age). If she could have a superpower, she would want to be able to fly. There are a lot of entitled, bratty kids in my town, but Abby is surprisingly selfless, along with imaginative and wise beyond her years.
