Hallo, ich bin Candice Phee, 12 Jahre alt, hundertprozent ehrlich und ein bisschen... anders. Anfang der Sommerferien bekam ich die Aufgabe, einen Aufsatz über mein Leben zu schreiben, in 26 Abschnitten, von A bis Z.

Calma Harrison is in love. Not just with herself but also with the handsome checkout guy at Crazi-Cheep. But when Calma gets a job at Crazi-Cheep, her cynical approach to customer service makes headlines.

I don't know you at all. I wouldn't recognise you from a hole in the ground. If I was telling this story to some friends, then they would already know Kiffo and they would know me and they would know the school and everything.
