MOST REALISTIC TEEN|
SUSAN, GUIDING LIGHT
Susan has a chip on her shoulder - and isn't afraid to tell anyone within earshot about it. This 14-year-old sneaks out after curfew, aspires to be popular in high school and struggles with living in a blended family. "You're so unfair!" she blasts at biological mom Harley, while simultaneously rolling her eyes at stepfather Phillip. Talk about reality television - what adult co-habitating with an adolescent hasn't heard lines just like that? Susan's drama hits a nerve for anyone who hasn't blocked out the trials and tribulations of the journey between childhood and adulthood. Susan's honesty and vulnerability (and don't forget - major mood swings!) are a refreshing change of pace: We've all known - or been - a teen like Susan.
